Started in 2013, Okanagan Counselling Services is a comprehensive clinic in Kelowna that offers a wide range of services to help their clients deal with any challenging life circumstances or mental health concerns. We popped by this week to get an update from owner Nicole Ripley.
Q: What is something you wish you knew when you first began?
NR: I would say a better knowledge about business. I studied psychology for 7 years, however in those 7 years I didn't take a single business course. I found power in connecting with mentors, which is how I got the business side started.
Q: What is something people might not know about Okanagan Counselling Services?
NR: We have master level physicians that specialize in a broad range of services. We even offer specialized training for front line staff of businesses and organizations in how to manage crisis and react to difficult situations.
Q: What are you looking forward to in the future?
NR: We're looking forward to possibly expanding into a new city and to offer more subsidy options for people who qualify for assistance.
