Tend and Cultivate Counselling/Therapy
Tend and Cultivate Counselling, Inc. is a radical, social justice informed group therapeutic and healing practice that specializes in offering non-stigmatizing care to people in larger bodies.
People at the higher end of the weight spectrum face systemic and institutional oppression, including in the field of mental health. As more people in larger bodies are diagnosed with a range of eating disorders, including Binge Eating Disorder, Orthorexia, Bulimia Nervosa, and the rapidly growing diagnostic group of Atypical Anorexia Nervosa, many are looking for counselling, coaching, and care that does not problematize their body shape or size.
Tend and Cultivate Counselling is anti-racist and built on a foundation of disability justice, gender diversity, body liberation, and radical thought. Our therapists specialize in trauma, relationships, eating disorders, and the unique challenges people in plus-sized and larger bodies face. Our brand pairs care and healing with evidenced-based treatment and decolonizing approaches to wellness.
What does this mean for you?
We strive to offer you a soft place to land; a place where no matter how scary or overwhelming your issues are, you feel seen, welcomed, accepted, and believed. Our clinicians are non-judgmental, affirming, and action-oriented around advocacy.
We collaboratively work with you to cultivate the future you're dreaming for yourself - a future where you and your body feel a sense of freedom, agency, and autonomy.
At this time, our co-founder and CEO, Dawn Serra is accepting new counselling clients for those located in British Columbia, Canada and new coaching clients for those located around the world.
