Celebrating Hannah For Her Workshop Success!

Meeting new faces and connecting with our community is huge here at Shift. We are thrilled with how this past Sunday's workshop on the health benefits and mood-boosting effects of tea (so aptly named Communi-tea) came together. We shared information, compared flavours and aromas, and even created our own blends with a variety of ingredients from dried cherries to rose petals to holy basil (and a lot of stuff in between!). We sipped white, green, black, and red teas and shared laughs, snacks, and knowledge -- the best way to keep warm on a chilly Sunday afternoon. Thank you to everyone who came to spend time with us at Shift, and here's to you, Hannah! We'll never look at a mug of tea quite the same ever again. 

 

Welcome Lisa and Suzette!

We would like to extend a warm welcome to our two latest therapists, Lisa Schwartz and Suzette McLarty

Suzette has been working in the Mental Health and Addiction sector for over 18 years. She has practiced at an acute care hospital setting where she provided psychosocial support for clients with addiction/concurrent disorders. Working from a harm reduction, trauma-informed framework, Suzette has helped individuals develop skills and access resources needed to increase their capacity to be successful in their recovery. She believes in treating the whole person and tailors treatment to meet each individual’s needs and treatment goals.

Lisa’s areas of practice include stress, anxiety, emotion regulation, parent-counselling, self-esteem and confidence, grief and bereavement and relationship and family difficulties. In her full-time position as an Individual and Family Therapist at the SickKids Centre for Community Mental Health, Lisa has experience in working with clients with diverse backgrounds and various emotional and relational difficulties. Lisa has training in different therapeutic modalities which she draws from in supporting clients. She also incorporates mindfulness and self-compassion based practices into her work with clients.

We are so excited to have these brilliant women on board and we can't wait to be a part of their journey and support them as they grow with us.

Join us in the The Happy Holidays Class

Oh, the holiday season.

Between family, friends, finances, gifts, taking time, looking back, looking forwards... the holidays can be a lot.

In fact, we get a lot of clients coming to us asking for more support around the holidays. Moreover, both of us have a lot of stress around the holidays.

So we thought that we'd create a 10-day class to help all of us get through the holidays with less stress, more focus, more laughs and deeper connections.

Here's what's inside:

  • 10 lessons for each day from December 22 to January 1
  • 10 tools or exercises that will take less than 20 minutes to complete
  • Private access to a 24/7 discussion group for peer support
  • Daily interaction and moderation with both Megan and Jordan
  • Ongoing access to the lessons and tools for the next year
  • A 30-day money back satisfaction guarantee

We're dedicated to creating a better way for all of us to channel the stress of the holidays.

We hope you'll join us inside The Happy Holidays Class!

- Megan and Jordan

PostSecret Live Event!

Sharing secrets can be so powerful. We got such a solid reminder of this Friday, October 20th at PostSecret live.

Thank you to everyone who shared their time, attention, and stories with us! Therapists, in a way, are experts in secrets. Our mental health can be so tied to whether or not we have the support of people who can hold our secrets with care and compassion.

Whether it’s anonymously on a postcard or one-on-one in session, sharing our truths is a powerful and important act.
