It's not just you, life HAS gotten harder in the last few years. If you've been powering through, staying strong and carrying on, but now you're barely getting by and you're tired of feeling like you're not really living your life, it might be time for outside support. The benefit of therapy is that it's a time where you get to focus on yourself, to look at your life, and to get an outside perspective on how it could be different. You don't have to just endure, with the right support, you can heal from the past, and move forward towards a better future.

Children and youth live in a different world today than most parents grew up in. It can be difficult for parents to understand why their children are expressing anxiety, sadness or stress in their lives. I can help children and youth navigate through their emotions, worries and self-defeating thoughts in a fun and engaging style. I coach children and youth through emotional regulation techniques that they can use in all situations to help manage challenging or stressful situations. I use a relational, client centered model to help children and youth understand themselves better in order to feel more secure and regulated in life.

Hello! My name is Carly and I run a psychotherapy, neurofeedback and general wellness centre called Realign Wellness Centre that services individuals, couples and families. In today’s fast paced and unpredictable world, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and “stuck” in patterns of thinking and behaving that hinder healthy growth and development. It is not unexpected that people are feeling more mentally and physically burnt out and unsure how to move forward to feel more balanced. Neurofeedback supports the brain in developing greater resiliency and flexibility and in general, the mind and body's capacity for healing.

I have a passion for working with individuals with anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). I am very open about my own experience with anxiety because I strongly feel like it should be normalized, as the majority of individuals experience a mental health need at some point in their lives; there is absolutely no shame in that. I help my clients reach their goals of mental calm by providing them with a safe environment to explore and unpack their fears. Together, we begin to understand the psychology of where that fear has stemmed from and begin to take steps forward in facing our anxiety and in thriving vs. surviving.

It's heartbreaking to watch your child or teen struggle. As a parent or guardian, you know your child best, and can clearly see when they are hurting. Luckily, they have shared a little about what they are experiencing, but you still feel uncertain about their needs- powerless to do anything about the problems they face. It feels like things will never change. They have so much potential, and you would hate to see them miss it.

I’m Dr. Alan McAllister. I have been working in psychological services for more than four decades. Over the years, I have observed that overthinking has reached near pandemic proportions. It is often coupled with unhelpful beliefs and ways of coping. This puts stress on the body and can even result in physical harm. With this pattern, the quality of life is diminished. Depression, anxiety, panic, insomnia, and lingering trauma may be diagnosed. Fortunately, cognitive-behavioural therapies, mind/body treatments such as biofeedback and neurofeedback, and practices such as meditation can make a big difference.

I support individuals who feel stuck and are curious about engaging in therapeutic art-making as an instrument of growth, support and personal empowerment. I work from a place of witnessing the human experience, with art-making at the centre that supports the healing process and anchors the therapeutic relationship. Art-making within a secure therapeutic relationship offers an opportunity to practice self-care and provides a safe place for further self-discoveries, new ways of solution finding and gaining new skills to manage some of life’s challenges.
