Dr. Rena Saini BSc, ND

Clinic Co-owner of Conscious Collective Health

I believe we all have the ability to heal our own body. When going through my share of health issues, I felt like my body and I were at war. I was frustrated at how incompetent and weak my body was.

 

Finally, after years of struggling, I came to this realization that one thing was certain-my body listened to EVERYTHING I told it good or bad.

 

We became friends. I realized it fiercely protects me when I am in danger, gives me strength when I am weak, and it shines when I am kind to it.  

 

As a Naturopathic Doctor, I have learned how what we feel impacts our own health and wellbeing.  For this reason, I use a lot of emotional healing alongside  Naturopathic healing.

Jessica Arends MA, RCC

I want to support you towards your personal goals and the outcomes you would like to see. Our first session will be focused on identifying what you hope to get out of counselling.

From there, I draw on my various training and experience to support you. My approach is integrative and person-centered, utilizing skills and techniques from attachment theory, CBT, DBT, EMDR, and mindfulness.


I have an M.A. in Counselling, along with additional training in areas such as DBT and EMDR. Most of my work experience has been with survivors of trauma and abuse, and I have extensive training in trauma therapy. I am also experienced in working with anxiety, depression, suicidality, and relationship challenges.

Emily Reid, BSW MSW RSW

I am a Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist who provides individual counselling for adolescents and adults, as well as relationship counselling. My approach to practice is trauma informed, somatic focused, and primarily based in attachment theory. 

 

I offer EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) - a process during which disturbing or traumatic memories are shifted to factual through the use of bilateral stimulation and desensitization techniques. EMDR is an effective and evidence-based treatment used to unblock past issues in order to allow them to be reprocessed in a way that promotes adaptive resolution. 

 

My treatment focus begins with clearing out the "roots" of the current issue by addressing past experiences that keep us stuck in repetitive, self-defeating patterns in relationships. I believe in providing lasting and effective change - working collaboratively to improve your quality of life and relationships.
