WHOLE MIND Services //


Sally offers services for all ages for issues including but not limited to focus & attention, performance enhancement at work & in athletics, play therapy, mindful parenting, mood disorders, pre&post fitness competition, eating disorders, & more.


Whether you’re a recreational athlete looking to bring more motivation & focus to your workout routine, or a competitive athlete looking for the mental edge, or if you’re experiencing an injury & looking for support during the healing process, I offer services to support you. From visualizations to breathing exercises to intention setting. Nutritional psychology & mindful eating practices can also be provided for clients to support their goals.


Support includes approaches from play therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy & mindfulness. Topics explored include mindful parenting, co-parenting, communication, behaviour regulation, transition planning, sleep, anxiety, depression, as well as learning & attention challenges you may be facing with your children.


The focus of both mood + food therapy & mindful eating programs together involve education & practice with regard both HOW & WHAT you eat! Nutrition Psychology assessment includes a 3-Day Food Journal for Mood (3-DFJM), which is a tool that allows simple assessment of the impact daily dietary intake is likely having on mood. Based on the results of the 3-DFJM, a method of nutritional remediation called Macronutrient Mood Therapy (MMT) can be applied. Mindful Eating practices can be added to or explored separately in individual therapy, online group, in home meal prep format, or in person group format.


Topics can be suggested by hiring group, so long as in the psychologist’s repertoire. Popular topics include mindfulness for the workplace, as research shows it could be an effective intervention to target high stress levels, concentration, sleep quality, & autonomic balance. This can be a fun interactice meeting with your team where we share a mindful cup of coffee (includes meditation & tips from nutritional psychology perspective on coffe & food pairing), breath work for productivity & stress reduction, & more!
