We're on a mission to make mental wellness simple, relatable, and actionable.
In the stale mental health industry, we have developed a different approach to therapy, workshops, and courses. We prioritize connection, creativity, and being solution-focused in all areas of our work. Our approach attracts ambitious leaders who are striving for excellence — at work, at home, and within themselves.
Since 2016, we have grown from a small therapy practice to a team of over 30 dedicated mental heath professionals. We are now proud to be the preferred provider of therapy and mental health education to top companies, insurance groups, campuses, and leaders like you.
To understand how we arrived here in 2018, let's take a step backwards to 2016.
Like all good stories, our founders, Megan Rafuse and Jordan Axani met by chance.
Megan, a clinical therapist, and Jordan, a researcher and speaker, shared a similar interest in imposter syndrome and how much it had impacted their own journeys.
After a number of chats, often about their similar experience of living with the "I'm not good enough" type of thinking, they decided to take a leap as strangers and launch a podcast called Impostercast. It would explore the moments in life where we fake it the most.
To their surprise, it took off and soon became a top-20 podcast on iTunes, demonstrating that so many of us feel like we're faking it everyday. As it turned out, they weren't alone in their feeling like frauds. In fact, it's become one of the unifying traits of all of our clients.
There was a magical bond of their personalities and ideas.
As they became closer as friends and allies, they began to look for more opportunities to collaborate.
At the same time, Megan opened up Shift as a therapy clinic in downtown Toronto, while Jordan took over a speaking agency focused on mental health and social innovation.
Both businesses were alike. They both consisted of world-class leaders who were passionate about helping others find their "more", whether through individual therapy, group workshops, or speaking to large audiences.
Megan and Jordan were bound by a belief that the conversations being had about mental health were stale and irrelevant... and it was time try something different. It was time to collaborate.
So they teamed up to create Shift Collab, the first company of its kind.
The decision was made to bring both businesses together as Shift Collab, a collaborative mental health practice that is dedicated to making mental wellness simple, relatable, and actionable for leaders.
That brings us back to you. If you believe we can support you, your team, or your organization, we're here. And we look forward to meeting you.
