About The Stress Center Kelowna

The Stress Center, Kelowna, Stress, Chronic Stress, Online Counselling, Counselling, Online CourseIn 2016, Dr. Calista and Vern Ward founded The Stress Center Kelowna, the first business of its kind in Canada. In doing so they integrating their 10 years as graduate level educators, 20 years in clinical therapy and 25 years of marriage. As a result, they developed a comprehensive therapeutic experience for individuals and the business community.

“We chose to start The Stress Center because we noticed a need in our community for people who were looking for fast, simple solutions… that work. Traditional management focuses on symptoms, identifying and addressing the symptoms of stress. What we’ve chosen to do is something different. We’ve chosen to focus on the source, to eliminate those symptoms altogether.”

– Dr. Calista Ward


The Stress Center Kelowna combines traditional therapeutic methods with modern technology and emerging psychological research. The Wards noticed the dramatic, documented increase in North American stress levels and their influence on individuals at home and in the workplace. They decided to develop a practice dedicated to this and its counterparts – depression, anxiety, anger, work productivity and relational issues. Today, they offer a variety of services including an online course and videos, workbook, online coaching, personal profiles, and personal counselling.
