  • Colleen DOrsay
    Registered Counselling Therapist - RCT-C

    Speaks: English
    Colleen possesses a Masters of Arts Counselling Psychology degree and is registered with the Nova Scotia College of Counselling Therapists (RCT-C). She has worked in the social services field for many years and loves getting to know people in all their forms. Making meaningful connections and helping others overcome challenges is very important to her. Her counselling focus is on injury recovery, mental wellness, addictions and overcoming trauma. These interests were peaked as a young adult during her time as a medical assistant with the Canadian Armed Forces (Reserves). As a result, Colleen has a special interest in working with First Responders and veterans. She has worked as a hospital chaplain and has received masters-level training in spiritual care and counselling. Colleen has lived and worked in First Nations communities and within 2SLGBTQ+ populations. This has made her very sensitive to cultural diversity and the nuances of the human experience. She has a warm and calming energy that helps people feel at ease rather quickly. Major life events can bring about uncertainty and it can be helpful to have someone who can not only listen but provide new tools to help cope and thrive. Looking at things from different perspectives, finding meaning in change, coping skills and distress tolerance can all achieve new insights, personal growth and well-being. To do this, Colleen takes an eclectic, evidence-based therapeutic approach that includes trauma-informed, DBT, CBT, narrative, solution-focused, mindfulness and strengths-based approaches. The approach taken depends upon the individual’s needs and their unique set of circumstances. In this way, clients can be assured they are receiving the most meaningful and change-oriented care.

  • Matthew Bernard
    Massage Therapist

    Speaks: English
    After discovering at a young age, a desire to try to de-stress family members through shoulder rubs Matthew eventually realized that a career in the health care industry, where he got to work with his hands was where he needed to be. After graduating the Massage Therapy Diploma Program at the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy in 2003 he began his career in the spa industry, which led to the study of Ayurvedic medicine and training in Reiki and Hot Stone Therapy. After making the move to more clinical settings, Matt quickly realized that people benefit greatly from a blended approach of east meets west and now practices a style of deep tissue massage that can target specific issues when necessary but does so in a way to keep the body as relaxed and balanced as possible.
