About Us


Tamara Schiesser

Vanessa Marie Miller

After a decade of post-secondary studies and many years working in the social services field (and often doing both at the same time!), I have learned to deeply appreciate balance and self-care and the importance of daily rituals and routines that help nourish all aspects of our well-being - body, mind and soul.  In my practice, my goal is to serve and support you on your journey, offering strategies and skills or sometimes just a safe space. I use a combination of approaches and modalities to provide clients with support that is unique to their needs and individual journey. 


I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (#17986) and a certified Hypnotherapist through the Horizon School of Hypnotherapy.  I offer one to one counselling sessions, group facilitation services and hypnotherapy.


My belief is we all deserve to feel empowered in our wellness, whether physical, emotional, spiritual or otherwise. My vision involves coming alongside others on their healing journey in whatever way is most important for them. I offer Family Counselling, Parent/Teen Mediation, Health Management and Consultation, Nutrition Counselling, Personal Training, Reiki


I have a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and worked extensively as a nurse for over 10 years in adolescent mental health, adult mental health, addictions, emergency medicine, chronic disease management and sexual health. I also hold a Level 1 Precision Nutrition Coach Certificate, Personal Fitness Trainer Diploma and am currently amidst my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology.

My role as a support person and care provider has lead me through many doors over the past 18 years. With deep roots and beginnings in the world of body work, yoga, movement and energy work I've come to integrate a wholistic approach to promote wellness. Creating a safe, trusting and non judgemtal environment is where I thrive in the workspace, and I've learnt to trust myself through that process. I'm passionate about helping those who are present and willing to help themselves.

I am Alberta registered with NHPC#24079. My modalities include
Bodywork, myofascial cupping, reiki, general reflexology, yoga, mobility and hydrotherapy.
