To our valued clients,

The COVID-19 pandemic is a stressful time with much uncertainty. Anxiety and fears can activate our trauma and put a strain on our relationships. In times like these, we are called upon to come together, support each other from a distance, and keep each other safe. Please rest assured The Whitestone Clinic continues to be here for you as an essential service.

At this time, we have transitioned to virtual therapy services using Zoom, an online video teleconferencing platform. Virtual consultations are a very effective alternative to in-person therapy.

As physical distancing measures are expected to be in place for the foreseeable future, we encourage clients to schedule appointments without delay. Putting off sessions until an “old normal” returns may mean too much passing time between sessions.

Rest assured our therapists and their exceptional work are deemed an essential service by the Provincial Government of Ontario. In a time when companies of all sizes are being urged to put formal plans in place to care for their employees’ mental health care, policy enhancements are happening with increasing regularity.

In the event you experience issues with reimbursement from your Insurance company, we suggest speaking with you Human Resources department or Union representative. Oftentimes newly updated policy terms may not be communicated as fast as we all would like.

It is in stressful times such as these that therapy can be of most help. If you have lost wages or your job, we ask you to talk to your therapist to see what we can do to help.

Until we next connect, stay safe and be well.


Group Therapy

Group Therapy programs guided by The Whitestone Clinic provide a safe space for people to communicate and learn. Whether for sex addiction, depression, or any other therapy focus, Group Therapy is a process that allows people to learn from the stories and struggles of those around them, letting them understand that they are not alone.

Couples Therapy

With the help of one of our therapists, Couples Therapy can help both partners find a way to improve their relationship. Couples affected by sex addiction can learn to cope and understand the causes and treatments for sex addiction. Those suffering from a lack of communication, another common issue within relationships, can also find help to overcome their struggles

Individual Therapy

Individual Therapy is an option which allows clients to receive one-on-one treatment with a counsellor. Individual Therapy provides a safe space where clients can delve into self-discovery, learn tools to overcome their struggles, and ultimately venture forth on the road to healing and recovery.

Sexual addiction negatively impacts the one struggling with addiction, but also affects loved ones. Intimate Partners may experience strong PTSD symptoms, which call for professional counselling to achieve effective healing and recovery from Partner Trauma. Most partners experience highly emotional reactions upon discovery, such as feelings of sadness, anger, and betrayal, and many struggle with feelings of shame or self-blame. This can prevent them from reaching out for the help they need for recovery and self-care, as they focus on carrying the burden of taking care of family while urging the sex addicted partner to seek the professional help they need. But it is important for partners to find a good support system to help them find healing.
Discovering or accepting problematic sexual behaviour can lead to serious trust traumas in loved ones, especially if infidelity has come into play. If you or a loved one are troubled by sex addiction, Whitestone Clinic can help you Return to Love. Trained sex addiction counsellors provide an understanding ear and the tools you need to find a healthy way of relating to others and yourself. We understand the struggles you are facing and are here to help.

Please Note The Whitestone Clinic does not provide medical or psychiatric care, nor do we offer treatment or care for the issue of pedophilia.


The Whitestone Clinic offers an intensive couple therapy program for couples impacted by sex addiction. In the program, the couple flows through key steps of therapy timed for effective recovery from sex addiction and healing from betrayal trauma. Important stages include initial couple assessment, followed by individual work on addiction recovery and healing from betrayal trauma, dovetailing with the crucial work of preparing, delivering, and receiving the recovering addict’s Disclosure Statement and the partner’s Impact Statement. In the final phase, the couple begins intensive couple work to repair their damaged relationship, rebuild intimacy and healthy sexuality, and Return to Love.
