About

We all go through rough spots in life where we can benefit from time to reflect. These times can also be an opportunity to understand ourselves better, and make sense of harmful patterns. Throughout life, we develop thought and behaviour patterns in our response to stress, in our relationships, and in our daily habits. With effective tools and strategies, we can make sense of them, and let them go. This opens us up to a more authentic and healthy life.
I have been working with families and individuals for twelve years, and I bring a wide range of experience and knowledge into my approach. My work integrates mindfulness and stress reduction strategies with a cognitive-behavioural approach. This is particularly effective for those struggling with mood disorders, ADHD, and relationship problems.
I seek to provide a supportive, non-judgmental space for you to grow and move forward in your life. If you are interested in learning more about what I can offer, please contact me so that we can talk about how we can work together.

Kayla Ruano Gowdy's Groups

Mindful Yoga-Based ACT

Yoga and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) are brought together in a program designed by Timothy Gordon and Jessica Borushuk. ACT is an evidence-based psychotherapy that helps us develop psychological flexibility and mindful awareness. Yoga integrates beautifully with this approach, helping us embrace the body-mind connection and regulate our nervous systems. Each two hour group session focuses on an essential theme, and combines group discussion, meditation and a physical yoga practice.
