Culturally competent mental health services may be one of the biggest benefits of online therapy.

If you are Indigenous and have tried therapy before with a therapist that isn't First Nations, you may have been frustrated with the lack of understanding of Indigenous values and perspectives and may have felt like counselling didn't help. This is why it is important to work with someone who understands Indigenous values, family dynamics, and the impact of colonization.


Dr. Seymour is a member of the Akwesasne Mohawk Nation and has spent 15 years living in Northwestern Ontario among the Anishinaabe people learning their values and traditions. Indigenous people have unique social, political, and historical factors that impact mental health and it's important for a therapist to understand these complex issues. And, to understand how generational trauma can impact wellness and healing.

Whether you live in Thunder Bay, Toronto, or Ottawa or any of the communities in-between, the advantage of virtual therapy is that you can access professional counselling services to address your stress, anxiety, depression, and trauma.

You don't have to settle for a counsellor just because they are conveniently located, you can access a therapist that specializes in your needs and is the right fit for you! 

Benefits of Telehealth


You can sign in for your therapy session from your home, work, car, or even the bush if you have access to wifi. 


There is no wasting time driving back and forth to your counselling appointment and having to wait in the waiting room. This helps to make therapy more convenient, making it easier for you to attend. 


Research shows that online therapy, can be just as effective as therapy in person. 


With virtual therapy, there's no chance of running into your auntie, cousin, or neighbor on your way to counselling.

Tips for Virtual Therapy

Location: Find a space that is quiet, private, and comfortable. Many people log in from their couch, car, or work space. 

Charged and Connected: Make sure your phone, tablet, or computer is charged for your session as sometimes a low battery can interfere with video and sound quality. Also, check that your wifi signal is strong and connected. 

Get Comfy: Grab your favorite drink from Timmy's, your fur baby, or a comfy blanket. It can be helpful to take a couple of deep breaths to help you focus before the session begins. 

Reflect: You want to get the most out of your therapy session, try and take a moment to reflect on what you would like from counselling. It can be helpful to write and write down your intentions before hand your session.
