Heal. Grow. Thrive
Weather the storm, embrace the calm, and heal from the inside out with individually tailored counselling and psychotherapy to suit your needs.
Are you struggling to find joy and engagement in your daily life and relationships?
You may be plagued by anxious thoughts, a low mood, or are feeling not quite like yourself as a result of traumatic or distressing life events. Healing and growth is possible for everyone, and it happens from the inside out.
Offering virtual and in-person therapy in a safe, welcoming space, I draw from evidence-based approaches to offer each of my clients innovative, personal therapy.
It feels good to be listened to without judgement. Together we can shine a light on patterns and belief systems that may be holding you back, and support body, mind and emotions as you heal and grow.

It’s Nice to Meet You!
I’m Janine. I’ve weathered a few storms of my own, and I love helping others as they find their way through the painful experiences that are often a part of life.
I recently navigated a year-long stage 3 cancer experience, and I know about healing.
I believe that the body, mind, and emotions must be in balance in order to achieve health and a sense of peace and well-being.
