Dear: Janice, You are a highly sensitive introvert. You are deeply impacted by the energy of others and you get your energy from nature and spending time within. That you would rather stay in and be cozy is more than okay and you are not “lame, a granny, a party-pooper or a wet blanket, and […]
For a few sweet summers in my early twenties, I worked as a swim and trampoline instructor at an amazing international summer camp in Crans Montana, Switzerland. Kids would come from all over the world and spend three weeks in the beautiful alps, to be entertained and cared for by an amazing group of kind, […]
“Feelings are the language of the soul.” Sadly, many of us have been conditioned to stifle the language of our soul. From the early days of upset over being left to be “It” in a game of tag, to navigating our first heartbreak, most of us, at one point or another, have received messages like […]
Hey there! My name is Janice.
I am a holistic psychotherapist, yoga teacher (200-hr), meditation teacher (100-hr), registered social worker (MSW, RSW), college professor, world traveller, and lifelong learner. I am an ally, an advocate, and a holder of hope. Above all else, I am a human BEING, who deeply understands the experience of battling through the trenches of trauma, stress, anxiety, and depression. I have learned some invaluable tools along my journey—both personally and professionally—that I am passionate about sharing with those seeking transformation and change.
I value authenticity, compassion, and humour, and always exemplify these qualities whether I’m providing a learning, healing, or reflective space for others. I believe in the importance of mindful breathing, compassionate curiosity, spending time in nature, and the ability to laugh at oneself every now and again.
I believe in being real with ourselves and others, especially, with regards to the inevitable curveballs of life, which we all encounter in varying shades. In my experience, realness leads to connection and compassion, which are the cornerstones of human growth and development.
Thanks for visiting this space and allowing me to be a part of your journey.
Be real and be well,

“Having worked with Janice for a number of years at ROCK Reach Out Centre for Kids, I have so much respect for her as a clinician. Janice is an incredibly skilled therapist. She not only has a vast knowledge of mental health and wellness, but she also has compassion and empathy for individuals from all walks of life. She is able to forge meaningful connections with clients in order to help them achieve their personal health goals. Janice is also a trained yoga teacher, which I believe is a beneficial and unique complement to her therapeutic skills. I would happily recommend her to anyone in search of help in bettering their mental health.”
