Due to the overwhelming increase in the volume of calls, we are limited with offering in-person supports for people requesting FNIHB. We focus on trauma that understands Neuro-decolonization, and holistic approaches. It is apparent that these type of services are needed and requested by many. At this time we can only offer Pay for Services or Insurance  starting at $50-$160.00 that are in person at Edmonton, Slave Lake and Calgary. We can also offer women's groups,  men's groups, and youth cultural groups.   If you have recently inquired about our services and have not heard from us, please call 780-400-4626 ext. 118. Please contact Edmonton FNIHB Regional Office to connect with other FNIHB providers: 1-800-232-7301 or Alberta Indigenous Virtual Care Clinic 1/-888-342-4822. When accessing FNIHB services,  clients are required to go through insurance first before using this service. This is an ISC policy and not an Indigenous Psychological Services policy.  Please contact a FNIHB Navigator from your nation to help advocate if you need extra support.

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 in Somatic, ART or EMDR.  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.
