About

You have a power within you to overcome obstacles, and thrive within the life you want for yourself. Starting counselling can be scary, intimidating and overwhelming, and that is okay. At Art of Thriving I help to create space where we can go on a journey together towards building a stronger relationship with yourself, uncovering the power that lives within you, and building towards your goals. If you are looking to decrease your stress, build a healthier and more loving relationship with your body and soul, and embark on a journey designed specifically for you, then you’re in right place.
My name is Alicia Pinelli, RSW, MSW and I identify as a queer person with lived experience. After going through my own recovery journey, wishing I had practitioners who understood what it was like on the service user side, I decided to dedicate my life to uplifting and supporting others through unique, personalized mental health services.
I recognize that not every practitioner will fulfill what you need, and that is okay! I am here to help the best that I can, whether that is moving alongside you throughout your counselling journey, or helping to find the best referral fit. We don’t always need to know how or where to begin, we just have to start and when you’re ready, i’ll be waiting!
