Meet Janice Tuling

Hi, I’m Janice. I know that it can take a lot of courage to look into counselling so I am honoured that you may be inviting me to be part of your healing journey.


From a young age, I can recall being drawn to and wanting to help people who were struggling. Over time, I have come to discover and now deeply believe that everyone, no matter what they have navigated in their lives, has an incredible resiliency, inner wisdom and innate capacity to heal and live a life that is more peaceful and meaningful. This healing can be blocked by trauma and life stressors getting stuck in our bodies, which can prevent us from seeing our wisdom, truth and beauty. My approach to counselling is to start where you are. In a heart-centred, gentle, emotionally safe, trauma-sensitive and supportive way, we will explore together to help you see and access your healing, wisdom and growth.


I am a Registered Social Worker and EMDR Therapist. I completed my Master of Social Work degree from Wilfrid Laurier University in Ontario and my EMDR Basic Training with Sue Genest. I am currently enrolled in Peter Levine’s Somatic Experiencing approach (2024-2026) and am constantly and humbly learning everyday as a mom of 2 to a tween daughter and a teenage son. Parenting and watching them grow, unfold and become, has been the greatest and hardest training that I have had to date!


I have been practicing social work for 20+ years with a variety of populations and have witnessed and supported many individuals living with emotional pain, attachment wounds, chronic stress, burnout, anxiety, depression, infertility, loneliness, isolation, shame, guilt, loss, grief, fear, frustration, sense of not belonging, losses of identity, lack of self-compassion and purpose. It is my deepest privilege to support you on your healing path, to witness and help you to see your innate beauty and wisdom, reclaim your authentic self and find more peace and meaning in your life.


When I'm not in the counseling room, you might find me listening to and making music, camping and being in nature and hanging out with my family, including our crazy and sweet dog!
