Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have changed the way we are providing services. Services are now being offered virtually. Clients calling in for services will be offered single sessions either by video or phone.


The virtual walk-in clinic at Open Doors for Lanark Children for Youth offers single sessions of solution-focused counselling right when you need help getting

“un-stuck” from a difficult place. The virtual clinic is here to meet the needs of those who are motivated to create change in their lives and need help to do so. The benefits of virtual walk-in sessions include:

  • processing during your appointment a difficult situation in real-time

  • developing a new perspective on a complex issue and feeling more empowered to overcome it

  • discovering coping strategies which draw from your own strengths and abilities

  • rediscovering helpful techniques, strategies, and supports that have worked for you in the past


The virtual walk-in clinic may be accessed by children and youth (aged 0-18) and their families, as well as by parents requiring support. 

You can call for an appointment as often you need.

However, you must be in Ontario to receive telephone or video sessions.

To arrange for a virtual walk-in session, call us toll-free at 1-877-232-8260.
