We offer integrated services for clients who are Indigenous, BIPOC and Non-Indigenous people.

We are immersed in culture that we share on Turtle Island and believe in being inclusive to all.

Our team believes in the Two-Eyed Seeing approach when it comes to helping people. We need to understand the importance of culture and how this can impact a person's healing and well-being in a psychological setting.  In addition, we as professionals need to engage in the culture to truly understand the meaning and how this can help our people we work with. All our providers are also trauma informed and have certification. People can access coverage through First Nations Inuit Health Branch and Insurance.  We are a growing practice that allows for others to share their passion in working with Indigenous populations. We also offer affordable rates with counselling starting at $70.00 instead of $220.00.

Each provider has trauma certification and Indigenous Awareness training. Our providers focus on: 

  • Reparation of the brain,

  • Restoring the nervous system,

  • Reconnection with self and others, 

  • Restoring kinship,

  • Enhancing inner resilience,

  • Healing centred engagement,

  • Safety seeking and rapport building

  • Cultural safety and inclusivity,

  • Sharing and healing of the one's story and finding purpose,

  • Facilitating with the journey of healing and well-being,

  • Sharing the importance of culture and spirituality in a therapeutic setting.
