Bill and Susannah-Joy Schuilenberg are "William & Associates." This practice was born of a longtime dream to offer mental health services in a way that is congruent with their personal and professional values. In 2014 when they knew they were returning to Canada from Kuwait to stay, Bill and Susannah-Joy decided to make that long-time dream a reality.
In 2015, with family at the center of their core values, they had a series of brainstorming sessions with their daughters, consulted siblings, and many ongoing conversations about the best way to express those values. After much vociferous debate, sober consideration, hilarity, and many, many, many discarded scribbles, they settled on the vision and commitment to govern this practice.

To invest in the potential of Others to be healthy, creative individuals connected in significant ways to the humanity of our common Tribe.
We passionately believe asking for help should open doors to the resources and support needed to make a difference. We know from years of research that the relationship between client and counsellor is the most important element of successful therapy. If none of our therapists are a good fit for you, we will happily make a referral to other professionals or resources.
