Functional Nutrition

Krystal Sarasin

Krystal is a Functional Nutrition Therapist, which is a career that has become her calling, after she made an incredible recovery from debilitating symptoms and 4 rare chronic illnesses. Through her own health journey, Krystal has become passionate about treating mental health and illness differently. Her therapy is based on her background in psychology, mental health and trauma, along with the principals of Functional Medicine and Functional Nutrition. It is deeply rooted in scientific evidence. She emphasizes a natural approach to restoring optimal functioning in your body and works to resolve the root cause, not chase symptoms! She focuses on nourishment, not diets, and adding in, not restricting. Food is medicine. Mindset is medicine. Lifestyle is medicine. Together, we have the power to restore, balance, heal and create. When she is not in the clinic, Krystal can be found spending time with her amazing family, outside in nature, being active, cultivating balance, loving and appreciating life like never before.

Our Counselling Team

 

Greg Wiebe

Greg is familiar with how unpredictable life can get. He knows what it means to feel stuck, and to not know how to get unstuck. He also gets how disheartening it can be to feel disconnected from others or even ourselves. That’s what Greg loves about counselling. He continues to find that problems become more bearable and more quickly resolved when we have someone to work on them with.

Although just recently completed his Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology, Greg has been providing social, emotional, and spiritual support to incarcerated individuals, correctional officers, and colleagues since 2015. He regularly works with trauma-survivors. Greg believes in the power of relationship and has a knack for meeting people right where they’re at.

Tanya Bedford

Offering clinical supervision

Since early in adolescence, I loved to journey alongside people as they worked through hurts and challenges in life. I was also, for awhile, fascinated with the science of Engineering. Because I loved both science and the humanities, I first graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering, and worked within the field of oil and gas for 5 years as a project manager. I grew aware that my fascination with Engineering science had waned but my gift for journeying with people had not. So I completed a Masters in Counselling Psychology at Trinity Western University. Since then, I have strived to be present through meaningful and transformative experiences in counselling clients.

My specialization has grown through the years in unique therapies for dissociation, trauma and abuse, depression and anxiety and attachment struggles. These therapies include EMDR, OEI, CBT and some neurofeedback. I am most influenced by existentialism and Virginia Satir’s model of transformational Family systems therapy.
