Our Team

The Refuge is home to a growing number of integrative health and healing professionals who share the vision of providing safe, trauma-sensitive and client-centered care, and have committed themselves to embodying our philosophies and principles. Our commitment is to supporting your growth, healing and wellness on all levels – body, mind, emotions, spirit, and relationships.

Affiliate practitioners at The Refuge operate independently but in a collaborative team environment. Our practitioners have completed master’s degrees, are regulated health professionals actively registered with a professional college, and have completed extensive post-graduate training in trauma, attachment and relationships, and mental health and addictions issues. Our practitioners have also dedicated themselves to their own personal healing, and have a continuing commitment to ongoing education.
