Who We Are

Our philosophy

  

 Therapy is one of many journeys that individuals begin, to inspire change and self-discovery that involves a collaboration between the therapist and individuals.  At Isheaga, we believe that within each individual lies their authentic self to be as they are.

About Donicka

I am a Registered Psychotherapist with a back ground in Child and Youth Care Practice.  My 20 + years  experiences of supporting individuals and families have taught me that change is the one, yet most often feared constant in individual's lives.  When we learn to let go of  the fear, we open ourselves up to allowing new ways of thinking and experiencing to unfold.  Together we can co create the space for you to experience self compassion, healing and clarity during this change process.  

Clinical Supervision Services

Individual and supervision groups are offered to support your clinical practice.   


Individual Supervision is $100 per 1 hour session. 

Group supervision complements individual supervision by providing you with opportunities to participate in a collective learning experience for gaining knowledge, sharing unique skills, resources and strengthening clinical insight. This is achieved by drawing on the diverse backgrounds and experiences of practitioners and therapists. Engaging in reflective and self-inquiry and providing feedback are valuable aspects of clinical supervision and that fosters professional development and ensures better outcomes for clinical practice.

Depression and anxiety are some of the most common issues individuals experience.  By identifying what is fueling these experiences, we can create space for establishing new  possibilities for understanding and coping with situations that can trigger depressive and anxious thoughts.  

Life transitions

Change is one of the most difficult experiences to manage and can affect individuals of all ages.  School, work transitions; foster care and adoption; Divorce and separation issues can lead to overwhelming feelings of anger, sadness and the uncertainty for how to manage and move forward.   Through discovery and understanding, a new way of thinking and being can occur.    

Relationships

Thoughts to move you forward

Mindful moments:
Making life work for you requires a healthy balance of mind body and spirit.  SO, what does this all mean anyway?  There is a famous quote from Buddha that states, "What we think, we become." If you are ruminating over the stressors of the day, what has happened, what could or what did not as a means to work this through or perhaps your hope is to create a different outcome.  Guess what my friends, that will not happen, yet an increase in your stress and frustrations will.
