Connection can be defined as “the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard and valued”. -Brene Brown

Connection is a deep bond in which you develop awareness between yourself and the external world. Through this awareness, your identity as well as the ability to comprehend and communicate with others evolves. As you continue to develop and make more meaningful connections, the more grounded you may feel, in who you are and how you interact with the world. However, there are many of you that have experienced unhealthy or toxic connections with yourself or others. This may have caused trouble with accepting your gender or sexual identity. You may also experience difficulty comprehending or communicating thoughts, feelings or emotions, resulting in conflict with loved ones. As a result, you may feel like disconnecting and withdrawing is the safest decision to make. 

As a queer and biracial (Chinese/Cree) individual I remember what it was like to not be fully accepted by a community. I remember the shame that resulted from the self-criticism and self-judgment from not being able to live up to the incredibly high standards that I placed on myself in my attempts to fit into a narrative that was not authentic to myself.

If you are someone who is experiencing mental health difficulties as a result of your sexual, gender or cultural identity; or if you are now open to processing difficult experiences from the past you have come to the right place. If you choose to work with me, you will be given a safe space for your experiences to be seen and heard, which isn’t typically present in our daily lives. This will give us the opportunity to explore your issue and develop effective coping mechanisms to be able to navigate life with less stress. On top of that, we will be able to work together to process the mental health struggles that prevent you from living your best life.

Therapeutically, this is done by using a combination of acupuncture and counseling. Acupuncture is an excellent tool to help bring you back into your body and regulate your nervous system, preparing the mind to process more effectively. Counseling is used to explore and process your experiences, giving you deeper awareness about you and how you navigate the world. Together, these tools will empower you, so you don’t feel so out of control in your life.

Jason is a registered acupuncturist in good standing with the College of Acupuncturists of Alberta (CAA) and a provisional registered psychologist in good standing with the College of Alberta Psychologists (CAP). Jason has completed over 11 years of formal education studying the mind-body dynamic and over a decade of experience working with the human condition.

When not in the clinic, Jason can be seen living his best life either playing volleyball, on the patio enjoying time with friends or vibing to the music at live shows.
