Counselling service arrives at FCSS

Cold Lake and District FCSS is opening their doors to a new counselling service.

“The service is meant primarily to assist those who do not otherwise have the means to access psychological services,” explained FCSS Manager Kim Schmidtz. “We wanted to make this calibre of service more affordable.”


Beginning in February, community members can see Registered Provisional Psychologist Genevieve Milliken, who specializes in anxiety and depression. Other areas of her expertise includes bullying, stress management, anger management, and parenting strategies.


“This is a partnership program with Supporting Wellness, which has afforded us to have Genevieve on site every Monday afternoon for the next year,” said Schmidtz. “I cannot express how grateful we are to Imperial for their support in bringing this valuable service to the community.”


Those interested in learning more about the counselling services available can contact Cold Lake and District FCSS at 780-594-4495. Priority will be given to clientele who do not have access to a benefits program or an EAP.
