The only revolution that can work is the inner transformation of every human being. 
~ Stanislav Grof




Counselling is an opportunity to explore the patterns of thinking and behaving that may be keeping you stuck so that you can create more space and consider new options for coping and thriving.  I work from a harm reduction, trauma-informed, and somatic orientation to help clients connect with their inner healing intelligence as they work towards their definition of recovery.  My training as a Nurse Practitioner also allows me to incorporate prescription medications into counselling as needed.  

Medication Consults

Medication consultations are intended to assist adult clients to understand the risks and benefits of psychedelic therapy as it relates to your mental health history and current medications so that you can make informed choices about your health and medicines.  This mental health service includes a one hour 1:1 consultation meeting, and one hour of additional time for me to review your health history, look up your medications, and a prepare personalized harm reduction and preparation recommendations.  Consultations are also available to mental health professionals who wish to discuss client medications or other aspects of psychedelic harm reduction and preparation.  

Psilocybin-Assisted Psychotherapy

As a TheraPsil Medical and Psychotherapy Associate, I can apply for legal exemptions for Psilocybin-Assisted Therapy for qualifying clients through Health Canada's Special Access Program.  Clients have the option of working with me as their primary therapist, prescriber, and/or co-sitter, depending on their clinical needs and personal preference.  It is important to understand that Health Canada makes the final decision about who may access Psilocybin-Assisted Therapy, and their inclusion criteria are quite strict.  Interested clients can find more information and self-refer through TheraPsil at  


Meet Keren

Keren Mitchell, MN-NP (F), RCC

Hi.  My name is Keren and I'm a dual qualified Family Nurse Practitioner and Registered Clinical Counsellor with two decades of experience in mental health, substance use, and harm reduction.  I blend solid education in mainstream psychiatry and psychopharmacology with specialized training in psychedelic and somatic therapy, and extensive personal experience navigating non-ordinary states of consciousness. My core values include trauma-informed practice and a non-pathologizing approach to understanding mental health and distress.  I aim to support clients to move towards greater psychospiritual integration through counselling, working with medicines, and psychedelic preparation and integration.
