Foggy Forest


We acknowledge that the land on which we gather is on Turtle Island. We are on Treaties Four, Six, Seven, and Eight Territory, which is the traditional gathering place for many who honor and respect the history, languages, ceremonies, and culture of the Blackfoot Confederacy – Kainai, Piikani, and Siksika – the Cree, Dene, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, Stoney-Nakoda, the Tsuu T'ina Nation and the Métis People who call this territory home. The first people's connection to the land teaches us about our inherent responsibility to protect and respect Mother Earth. With this land acknowledgment, we honor the ancestors and children buried here, the missing and murdered Indigenous women and men, and the ongoing collective healing for all human beings. We are reminded that all treaty people have a responsibility to one another. 

We stand by those who are with us and those who are forgotten and lost. We connect with our Mother Earth for healing, guidance, and teachings.

Who We Are

Tanisi, Tawow! /Hello, Welcome!

We offer psychological and counselling services for Indigenous, BIPOC, and Non-Indigenous people. We provide services to all communities and populations residing in Alberta with locations in Edmonton, Red Deer, Enoch, and through online formats.

We are immersed in the culture we share on Turtle Island and believe in being inclusive. 

Our team believes in the Two-Eyed Seeing approach 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 the people we work with. All our providers are trauma-informed and have certification in one or more of the following: Somatic, ART, EMDR, and more. We are a growing practice that allows others to share their passion for working with Indigenous populations. 

Get to know us better and discover how we can help you on your journey to mental well-being.
