Everyone needs help sometimes. Life can be tough, and dealing with everything on your own isn't easy. That's why our counselling program is here to support women, including trans women and non-binary people, in our community. We also help men and trans men who have experienced sexual abuse or assault at any point in their lives. Whether you have faced abuse, violence, or sexual assault in the past or are dealing with it now, we're here for you.


What We Offer

Our counselling program is a place where you can talk about what you’re going through and get support at your own speed. We know that you’re the best judge of your own life. We’re not here to tell you what to do or how to live. Instead, we’ll work with you to help you make decisions, keep safe, and learn how to handle the good and bad times in life.

  • Our program gives up to 12 free one-hour counselling sessions, and you can sign up again every 6 months.
  • We can talk in person or online.
  • We ask that you come at least once a month.
  • We help people living in Fernie, Sparwood, Elkford and the South Country.

Benefits of Counselling

  • Better communicate and relate to others.
  • Find new ways to handle tough times.
  • Lower your stress and feel better overall.
  • Feel better about yourself.
  • Process past traumas that are still impacting you.

I am passionate about building connections with and providing support to individuals who have experienced complex trauma, relationship challenges, self-esteem challenges, and gender transitions. Outside of work you will often find me talking to or about my 3 rescue cats, camping or snowboarding.

I am honoured to bear witness to such powerful stories of survival. I am continually amazed by the creativity and wisdom of the people I work with. I love to garden and to try out growing new produce. This year’s challenge is melons!

My name is Natalie Carruthers. My favourite thing about my job is when I’m able to help people begin to truly love themselves. There is nothing more rewarding then seeing someone begin to treat themselves with the same kindness and compassion they treat others with. Outside of work I love to spend time with friends and family- whether that’s on the ski hill, bike paths, or just hanging out by the river.
