Meet the TEAM


Patricia Levell

M.A.  Psychologist
~ Director


Patricia sees people as fundamentally resilient and she believes that within the context of a supportive, safe relationship, they can develop an understanding of their patterns, recognize their strengths and acknowledge and heal from the wounds they have. Growth comes from self knowledge, self-compassion and learning new coping skills to help move forward.


Brenda Wisenthal

Social Worker/Counsellor


I work with clients to help them improve their relationships, emotional well-being, and quality of life. I assist and collaborate with my clients in identifying clear and attainable goals, building on their strengths, bolstering their coping strategies, and improving their self-esteem.

Isabelle Richter 

Osteopath
 

Resonating in the consciousness of the mind and in the body, that is when we can really heal ourselves.  It is with this philosophy I work in my holistic practice using osteopathy and somatic intelligence.

I treat:
people of all ages
pregnancies
physical and emotional injuries.

Jodi Pichovich

B.A. – Massage Therapist

 

A big believer that everyone should feel good and function well, I feel strongly about helping others and really listening to their needs.  Having made major changes in my own lifestyle in recent years, I understand those in transition with regard to their health and am ready to lend a helping hand (yes, I love puns).  


Julia Wight

ELDOA Instructor
 

I am a Level 4 ELDOA instructor with over 3 years of teaching experience. I am passionate about people! ELDOA was a wonderful discovery for me, giving me an empowered sense of self, and I am excited to share this with others. I have a background as an athlete, fan of movement, and health geek - and am pleased to share this essential meditative stretching practice with others. Join me!

Kristen Lillie

Physiotherapist


I work with adults and seniors to improve mobility, decrease pain, and optimize quality of life with physiotherapy treatments. My approach is to provide client-centered care by combining your goals with my experience to achieve the results you want. I am a strong believer in giving my clients the tools and knowledge to support ongoing self-treatment.

I am a Registered Dietitian who is passionate about helping clients achieve nutrition and weight loss goals, manage chronic disease, and enhance personal wellness. My love for food and science has lead me to this great profession where I get to help people make positive change everyday.


After a full and rewarding career as a high school Guidance Counselor, I retired to dedicate more attention to the field of mind-body integrative wellness. Here at Yellow Umbrella and elsewhere, I have a three part private practice: individual Counselling; small group Meditation Coaching and; Mindful Schools programs.

I am entirely dedicated to and passionate about what I do and a firm believer in this holistic, non-invasive therapy, which is so much more than just a “foot massage for sore feet”. People of all ages and in all states of health can benefit and help maintain their level of health, use Reflexology as prevention as well as to relieve numerous aches and pains, deeply relax and find balance.

It was the desire to make a difference in people’s lives that put me on the path of acupuncture. I am a firm believer that healing comes from within. Diseases are due to an imbalance and as a health professional, I see my work as a partnership where I assist my clients to restore balance and thus regain their vitality.

Chantal Barette

Tai Chi Instructor

 

Like everyone else on this planet, I have been blessed over the years with wonderful opportunities for growth. These opportunities challenged me to reach out of my comfort zones and opened my eyes to numerous ways in which we can heal ourselves with even just a little morsel of trust in the universal intelligence. On this journey I discovered a true passion of mine: the empowering and healing magic in Tai Chi and Qi Kung.

Melissa Levell

B.Sc. Kinesiologist

 

Health should be a priority in our lives.  For the last 10 years, I have been working towards helping people take control of their physical health through training.  Since graduating from The University of Texas in 2014, I have been working as a kinesiologist.
