Olga Lacroix, Counselor (Registered Social Worker) RSW
Olga Lacroix is a registered Social Worker, yoga teacher and meditation coach who uses a holistic mindfulness-based approach to help women cope with emotional and physical problems that may be associated with infertility, hormonal imbalances, anxiety or depression.
Olga’s gentle and assertive interventions guide women through a process of discovering patterns and mental blocks that are currently preventing them from reaching their ultimate goal of healing and growth. By discovering the real root cause of the emotional problems, Olga guides women to discover within themselves their power to heal, transform and co-create.

Catherine Soroczan, Registered Acupuncturist R.Ac.
Catherine is a registered Acupuncturist and Civil engineer who understands and respects both western and eastern approaches to healing and health. Catherine has a keen interest in women’s reproductive health including fertility, menstruation, pre and post pregnancy issues, and menopause. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is not a “one size fits all” approach and requires a thorough analysis and understanding of each client to properly address the underlying causes leading to disharmony in the body. Catherine will work with you to understand the role that stress, emotions, diet, occupational, and other activities can play in maintaining or undermining overall health from a TCM perspective.
For those with limited knowledge of TCM and acupuncture this approach can seem mysterious and daunting. Catherine will walk you through the process, explaining potential disharmonies in the body, causes, acupuncture treatment options and needling specifics so that you fully understand and feel comfortable with the treatment approach. Acupuncture has an added benefit of inducing relaxation and clients may find themselves de-stressing to the point of falling asleep during an acupuncture session. Catherine looks forward to helping you find your balance.
