Sweet Violet Counselling Inc. Logo

The Name

The logo and banner were inspired by a picture that Karina's beloved 'grama,' Violet, drew. These emblems were created by one of Karina's cousins.

The sweet violet flower

The inspiration for Sweet Violet Counselling came from the desire to serve all people. Although the sweet violet flower originated in Europe and Asia, it grows around the world. People from different backgrounds and life stages access our services and journey towards feeling restored.
