Where mindfulness and psychotherapy meet.
We are a specialized mental health clinic offering evidence-based therapy and psychological assessment services to older adolescents and adults. We have Registered Psychologists and Social Workers, with virtual services in Nova Scotia and in-person services in both Dartmouth and Kentville, NS.
Every one of our clients has our respect: for their decision to confront what is difficult, their commitment to grow through pain, and the strength it takes to step towards change. We’re here to listen deeply and provide tools, strategies and new skills to help our clients resolve conflicts, make choices, heal, strengthen and reconnect with the people and joy in their lives.
Our adult therapeutic services are delivered with a focus on mindfulness, and can address a range of mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, addictive behaviours and trauma-related symptoms.
“Rest assured that you already have everything you need to heal, be whole and embrace your potential; we’d be honoured to grant you the space, curiosity, compassion, strategies, objectivity and practices to enhance your health and happiness.”
Referrals are welcome, but not necessary, to book an appointment.
Jane App Booking is only available for existing clients.
