Concerned about how your partner’s abuse has affected your children? Call PearlSpace at 604-892-5748 (Squamish) or 604-935-8534 (Whistler) to talk with a PEACE Counsellor. We provide individual and group counselling for children and youth aged 3-18 that have experienced conflict and/or abuse in the home.
