About Mind Shift Therapy & NeurOptimal Neuofeedback

A Holistic Approach to Therapy with Clinical Results

Offering trauma informed therapy specialized for individuals and couples.

Becoming Mindshift Therapy

Helping you move away from just surviving and embracing a life of thriving.

We provide a wide range of counselling services to treat life’s challenges that may impact your mental health. We provide a trauma-aware, safe place to work through these challenges in a mutually respectful environment because when we feel well, we do well for ourselves and the world around us.  When your struggles are piling up, you start to feel the effects taking the energy and joy from your life. We are here to help. We understand firsthand that managing these challenges can lead to feelings of anxiety and depression. We can guide the way when you start disconnecting from the people and things that matter most to you. Throughout these states, life can feel more challenging than it is, and we want to support you while you rediscover yourself, heal, and begin to feel empowered on your journey.

Our Mission & Values

We commit to providing a tranquil environment anchored in evidence-based treatments, fostering recovery from trauma. Our customized, innovative therapies allow you to feel validated and guided to explore your emotions, reclaim joy, and be equipped with tools for flourishing.

  • Experience and Specialization: for over 15 years, we have supported individuals through various life transitions and along their journey to mental wellness.

  • Holistic Approach: we understand the connection between the mind and the body.

  • Community Driven: We are part of a community of like-minded health practitioners and will support you on your journey to overall physical and mental wellness. If appropriate, we can refer you to other heath professionals.

  • Inclusivity: we are committed to diversity, equity and inclusion and offer services from a feminist, anti-oppressive, anti-racist and trauma-informed lens.
