Listen to the mustn’ts, child
Listen to the don’ts
Listen to the shouldn’ts
The impossibles, the won’ts
Listen to the never haves,
Then listen close to me …
Anything can happen, child

Anything can be

Shel Silverstein

Welcome to KTLO Counseling, Addictions and Crisis Response Services, a nurturing, wholeness-centred and liberation/growth-supporting and caring practice.  At KTLO, each Client is regarded as a unique, complex individual with hopes and dreams, and beliefs and values but who sometimes experience despondency and confusion and who sometimes engage in wrongdoing and dishonesty and trickery and chicanery; an individual who is smart and talented and confident and assertive but who, under certain circumstances, is fearful and cowardly and insecure and inconsistent; an individual who is accomplished in many areas of their life but is vulnerable and needy and impotent in many others; an individual who is often very decided about their choices but is sometimes irrational in their feelings of fear and anger and guilt and shame and in their associated behaviors; an individual with impeccable integrity and yet often with significant contradictions in personality, behavior and attitudes.

KTLO honors the humanness of each individual seeking support and empathetically understands that for them, as for all others, their experiences are moving forces in their life influencing their attitudes and behaviors and affecting many aspects of their life.  KTLO also honors the uniqueness of each individual and appreciates that each has a stockpile of their own experiences, values, resources and needs.

It is my hope that whatever the situation and circumstance that motivates you to seek support, KTLO will be for you a valuable resource in your personal recovery and growth.
