The Canadian Perinatal Wellness Collective

If you’re a mom or parent or expecting a new baby, and you have a feeling you need some support, you’re in the right place. We’re an online mental health counselling organization for moms, pregnant people, and families across Canada.

We have a brand new website for the counselling practice!


Our counselling team has expanded so fast, so I decided to build a home of it’s own! We’ve moved everything counselling-related to that new site (including booking sessions), so make sure to bookmark the new page!

We’ve built an amazing team of therapists across Canada

You can view our entire team here, but you’ll need to head to our new counselling website to learn more about the therapists, ask questions about counselling, and book your sessions.

Who We Support

You are in the right place

We offer individual video-based counseling sessions to clients across Canada (currently excluding Quebec, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia)

At least one in five moms experience postpartum depression or anxiety, and most moms have a harder time adjusting to motherhood than they expected. So let’s face it: becoming a mom can be incredibly challenging and create so many new layers of stress, anxiety, and interpersonal challenges that you never could have seen coming.

Moms and moms-to-be come to us for support as they adjust to this phase of life and the hurdles that come with it.

Common Challenges We Address In Our Sessions:


  • Postpartum and pregnancy anxiety, depression and mood challenges
  • Intrusive or scary thoughts
  • Relationship changes or difficulties
  • Rebuilding intimacy and sex
  • Identity transitions, or not feeling like yourself anymore
  • Birth trauma or disappointing birth experiences
  • Feeling blue, low, or uninspired
  • Fertility challenges
  • Pregnancy loss and stillbirth
  • Making decisions regarding family planning
  • Not feeling prepared for how your life would change
  • Managing life stress, changing roles, family dynamics
  • Returning to work
  • Grief and loss

Our Beliefs and Values

What we stand for

These statements define our values and work as mental health therapists:

  • A mother’s mental wellbeing has a direct impact on her family life, relationship, and child’s happiness.
  • You are worthy of your own love, compassion, self-care, and acceptance.
  • You have permission to write your own rulebook and define your values in motherhood.
  • You are more than “just a mom” and deserve to be fulfilled intellectually, socially, creatively, physically, and spiritually.
  • Your experience from your fertility journey to birth to the postpartum years has a huge impact on your mental health and identity.
  • There’s no wrong way to feel in motherhood and you have permission to feel the way you do without judgment from yourself or others. 
  • Postpartum depression and anxiety are some of the most prevalent mental health illnesses but yet they’re one of the most misunderstood and undertreated. One in five moms suffers. All of those moms are worthy of treatment and adequate support. 
  • Historical oppression, racism, and family trauma can contribute to mood disorders for moms. This includes moms who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour.
  • Moms from marginalized communities are at risk for childbirth trauma, postpartum depression and anxiety, and they’re more likely to have a harder time accessing mental health support. 
  • Not all clients identify as cisgender women. We work to be inclusive and accommodating for trans clients and all birthing people seeking support. 
  • Those who have a history with depression, anxiety or any other mental health illnesses are more likely to suffer in motherhood.
  • We consciously work towards inclusivity with language, graphics, examples in coursework, business partners, etc.
Frequently Asked Questions
Online counseling is the same as in-person counseling, except that we meet online. Just click the button below to book your first session. Once your account is set up, you can easily book your appointments and enter (and pay for) your video sessions.
You don’t need to download anything. All you need is an up-to-date browser (Chrome works well) and a good internet connection.
Ideally, you would use a laptop or computer, with a screen that’s big enough to see your therapist. A smartphone or tablet will however work in a pinch. If you plan on using one of those devices, you’ll just need to download the Jane App from the app store.
We offer one-hour sessions for $135 (CAD) plus GST. Video sessions are similar to in-person sessions, where we meet for one hour, and we spend time outside of your session planning your treatment and keeping progress notes.

After each session, you’ll have a balance in your “billing area” in your client account. We ask that this is paid immediately. All payment information is kept for you in your online account (which you can access from my website). You can make payments with a credit card.
Many extended health benefit plans cover counseling from either Registered Counsellors and/or Registered Social Workers, however, this varies from province to province in Canada. Make sure you check with your provider directly and understand your coverage before booking. We do not offer direct billing.

We currently see clients in all provinces and territories across Canada except Quebec, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick. We’ll soon be expanding across the rest of Canada as well. If you’re outside of these locations, visit Postpartum Support International for their directory of therapists who are trained in perinatal mental health.
We are a virtual therapy clinic! We have therapists who are located all over Canada, and we offer all services through video sessions.
This really depends on what challenges you’d like support with. Some clients will come for just a few sessions, whereas others are looking for longer support. Your counselor will discuss the timeline with you once you get started.
