Summary

We provide a variety of options for holistic healing in the form of virtual-counselling to any location Canada-wide with a clinical focus given to mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health. We are a highly diverse team of clinicians, with decades of experience, that offer support for nearly any issue that can be treated in a digital outpatient capacity. As this application is specifically for MindMap BC, we have numerous practitioners that specialize in proving support to any individuals identifying on the Two-Spirit, trans, and LGBTQ+ scale.
