Life can be hard sometimes and we all find ourselves needing a little support in those difficult moments. Reaching out is often the hardest part of the process. Tacit Knowledge can help - we offer individual and couples counselling to teens and to adults. All of our services are available in-person and online - and are available to everyone, all across Canada. I am Kim Silverthorn BA, RPC, MPCC, CT - I am the owner and primary therapist at Tacit, and my office is located in Beaumont. I offer a variety of traditional and holistic counselling supports for adults and for teens/youth. I provide an empathetic and confidential atmosphere in my counselling office, as I assist individuals, couples and family’s in addressing some of the more emotionally difficult issues in their lives. ​ I also provide Professional Development Training to various agencies and organizations, helping staff enhance the skills they use in their own workplaces on a daily basis. And I provide excellent community based programming/courses for those in the general public who may not yet be able to access the training that I offer, through their places of employment. I believe in providing my clients with the support they need on an individual basis - as part of your family - and/or with your bigger work team. I get to know you by first understanding the challenges you are facing from your perspective – and I help you come from a place of confidence and strength as you overcome those challenges in a successful and healthy way. ​​
