Valerie Di Paolo

Holistic Nutrition Practitioner

My name is Valerie Di Paolo, and I’m Certified in Holistic Nutrition Counseling. I currently perform my services out of the Zen Clinic.

 

I earned my Diploma at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and hold the designation of C.H.N., Certified in Holistic Nutrition.

I work with people of all ages from pediatrics to adulthood. In a compassionate manner, I help clients identify how their current diet and nutrition habits may be impacting the physiological function of their body systems or mental health. I guide clients towards their health and wellness goals by creating a sustainable nutrition and lifestyle plan aimed at supporting each body system and the bio-individual.

 

Sessions are conducted after reviewing completed intake forms in advance, to assess the entire health and wellness picture including potential body system imbalances for the root cause. This falls in relation to symptoms being experienced, main concerns, lifestyle, and wellness goals.

 

Each session holds a judgment-free attitude and is geared towards empowering each client with educational information. This information is intended to serve as lifelong tools and strategies to achieve optimal health and wellness. Clients leave empowered with knowledge alongside a nutritional, supplement (if required), and lifestyle plan with the option to continue with me along their journey.

Tabitha Kolo

Mindset Coach & Healer

Hi there!! 


My name is Tabitha, inner child and spiritual healing coach, fitness mentor, and CEO of Shredded Physiques. 


Through years of extensive training, breaking through limiting beliefs, and healing my own inner childhood traumas and self-destructive patterns I have created a safe space for people like yourself looking to release those inner demons. 


I specialize in helping individuals overcome limiting beliefs, heal the inner child within themselves, reprogram their minds to ditch old patterns, to become the BEST version of themselves to finally live the life they desire. 


When you fully learn how to connect with yourself and love and embrace the inner child within you, you will bring more self-awareness and understanding in knowing your current identity and the patterns you present. 


Transformation is an inside job, and change is a process. My services will provide you with proven, practical processes to successfully create life change, but even more importantly it will provide a process for totally transforming your life, from the inside out.


I grew up in a family where my feelings were often invalidated, and many things I did were “wrong” or “not good enough.”


I grew up with feelings of abandonment, unworthiness, and shame. 

You felt like that too, didn’t you?

We didn’t feel like we received the love & affection we needed or the validation that we craved.

So instead we went looking for it. The thing is when you look for love, affection, and validation in your external world, you lose the connection and trust you have with yourself.

My goal is to help you heal, and be a healer. To empower you to create change, shine so darn bright, and fully trust yourself.

That way you can empower yourself and everyone around you to do the same. I want to guide you into the next season of your life and to achieve success in all areas.

Do you want to overcome ANY and ALL limiting beliefs? 


Are you ready to transform those patterns and toxic behaviors no longer serve you? 


Whether it's mental or physical trauma you have experienced it can prevent you from moving forward in life and business. We become conditioned to accept our pains and limiting beliefs preventing us from living the life we desire. 


Do any of the scenarios sound like you?


👉🏼 You feel unworthy of all the things you desire in your relationships 

👉🏼 You fall into the same toxic patterns either consciously or unconsciously 

👉🏼 You felt abandoned, or like your feelings never mattered

👉🏼 You feel unloved by others or have been denying yourself self-love 

👉🏼 You have chronic body pains that won’t go away 


When you fully learn how to connect with yourself and love and embrace the inner child within you, you will bring more peace, awareness, and understanding to why you are the way you are! 


Some of the teachings I have integrated into my practice include but are not limited to:


✅ Identifying your limiting beliefs & blocks 

✅ E.F.T – Emotional Freedom Techniques 

✅ Healing from inner child wounds & discovering the root causes 

✅ T.I.M.E techniques – Time Integrations for Maximum Empowerment 

✅ Programming & Reprogramming your subconscious mind 

✅ Ho’oponopono process – Forgiveness techniques to make peace with past relationships 

✅ Reiki energy healing to balance your chakras 

✅ Breathing techniques to regulate your nervous system to release stress, anxiety, fear, worry, self-doubt, etc 

✅ Soul walks in nature to help you realign and ground yourself 


All of our programs are stemmed from the age 0-7 and those beliefs are unconsciously what you carry forward in the world. 


Inner childhood wounds stem from things such as:


👉🏼 Deep fears of abandonment in your relationships and friendships

👉🏼 Feeling ashamed/unsafe expressing your emotions

👉🏼 Being a people pleaser and avoiding conflict 

👉🏼 Lacking boundaries in your personal and professional life 


Society unfortunately does not teach us how to heal our emotions. We are taught to bury emotions because it’s the quickest way to get rid of them. Shielding yourself prevents you from manifesting, healing, and moving forward. 


It is through healing your wounds, your traumas, and beliefs, that you remember you were whole before life got its hands on you and you have the power to choose how you rewrite your story. 


Once you leave behind your conditioning you will see the lasting impacts on your mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual state.


If you’re ready to connect with yourself and rediscover your identity I invite you into my sacred space to discuss your journey to fulfillment today!

Eric Fisher

Substance Dependence Couselor

Hi there, my name is Eric. I’m a Master’s Level Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) with the Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy Association.

 

My Master’s degree (MS) is in Clinical Mental Health Counselling and I hold a Bachelor's degree (BS)  in Psychology.

 

I have over nine years of experience in the counseling field in both Canada and the US. I’ve worked in inpatient and outpatient settings which have given me many experiences, learning, and personal growth.

As human beings, I believe that connection is paramount. I join with others in an empathic, genuine, and nonjudgemental way.

 

I often collaborate with those needing help with trauma, addiction, anxiety, relationship concerns, stress, and depression. I see therapy as requiring a holistic touch as there are many avenues to healing.

My goal is to be client-centered and eclectic with my therapy approach. Using a screwdriver to hammer in a nail doesn’t often work! Through working together I hope we are able to open doors that have not yet been opened, close doors that require closing, renovate rooms needing a change, and discover blind spots which were unseen before.

 

Empowerment is vital to the therapeutic process, and I aim to help you find the starting point in your journey of self-discovery. 

Therapies Offered:

1. Accelerated Resolution Therapy - Advanced Certification 
2. EMDR - Basic Training Completed
3. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
4. Strength-Based
5. Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
6. Mindfulness
7. Dialectical Behavioural therapy (DBT)

I also draw from attachment theory, family systems, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and The Gottman Method.
