About Kelowna, B.C.

Westbank, Lake Country, Vernon, Peachland, Summerland, Penticton, Okanogan Valley.

Kelowna is known for its mild climate, providing cool winters and warm summers for visitors to enjoy.  Kelowna is the least windy city in Canada with 39% of the days being reported at calm.  This lends itself to fabulous recreation and vacationers year round. Okanogan Lake is known for the mystery of the Ogopogo monster that is said to live in the lake.  However, people have pointed out this lake monster looks similar to a log, a beaver, and other less ominous items that could be floating in the lake.  The lake is home to many summer vacationers who go houseboating, water skiing, swimming, and lounging on the beaches. Theravive's mission here is to provide excellent marriage counselling in Kelowna, B.C. through values based therapists.

Kelowna is also home to Okanogan College, a predominant school known for vocational and under-graduate studies.  It is the largest college outside Vancouver and Victoria in the province of British Columbia with over 5000 full-time students.  The school is expanding to offer graduate degree programs with the joint efforts of the University of British Columbia.  Population density for Kelowna averages over 50 people per square kilometer compared to the provincial average of 4 people.  The primary religion here is Christian. Marriage counseling in Kelowna attempts to restore struggling marriages and families, as well as prevent issues from arising through building sound communication skills. With its hospitable climate and a quiet, beautiful location near a pristine lake, Kelowna has become a prime retirement area for many people throughout the years.
