About the Serenity Now Foundation
The Serenity Now foundation is a non-profit with a focus on helping individuals who are struggling with addiction, stress, depression, anxiety, and trauma from a whole-body perspective. The foundation provides individual and group services, including counselling, nutrition, massage therapy, and biodynamic craniosacral therapy.
The goal of the Serenity Now foundation is to minimize the barriers of traditional counselling and give those in need increased access to mental health resources.
We offer services with no waitlist and no session limit. Rates are discussed on a case-by-case basis to meet an individual’s unique circumstances.
The Serenity Now foundation provides counselling through provisional psychologists, counselling interns, and practicum students. All students, interns and provisional psychologists are supervised by an experienced fully registered psychologist. Current supervision is overseen by Jennifer Mitchell.
This model allows the Serenity Now foundation to offer services based on individual need, income, and presenting concern. This ensures individuals receive continued, professional, and reliable services at a rate that matches their individual circumstances.
We encourage a mind-body approach. We have a massage therapist and a biodynamic craniosacral therapist who offer services through the Serenity Now foundation.
*Please note there is a minimum fee as required by the professional association and the experience level of the practitioner.
