About Pink Circle
"I believe that there are many paths to healing but that there must be a consideration and integration of the mind, body, and spirit along the way. My intention in starting up Pink Circle stemmed from my desire to combine my passions, skill set, and personal experiences to provide those on their healing and wellness journeys with a safe space––whether physical or virtual. A space that cultivates a sense of hope and connection, within and between people. A space that is rooted in empowerment, equality, and realness, and some good ol’ fashioned self-love and self-acceptance.
It is an honour and a privilege to walk with people on their unique journeys, and assist them in re-connecting with their most authentic selves."

You know all of those messages you see that tell you, you just need to “change your thoughts,” and ultimately, this will change your life? Does this ever leave you feeling frustrated, stuck or hopeless, like: “They make it sound so easy, why can’t I just change my thoughts and everything would be fine?” “Something […]
It’s been almost three weeks since I touched down in the green and beautiful Costa Rica. I have spent countless hours practicing yoga and meditation, reading, writing, creating, and resting. But, the most impactful activity that has filled my schedule and my soul on this trip has been the hours spent exploring and hiking […]
Most of us are taught from a very young age to “Always tell the truth.” The adults around us made every attempt to ensure that this value was etched into our fabric, right from the early days of: “HE started it!” We are evasively promised a “Get out of jail free card,” if we fess […]
Hey there! My name is Janice. I am the founder and face of Pink Circle Wellness. One day, I hope to have other faces associated with Pink Circle but for now, it’s just me! So, here’s a little about me:
I am an integrative, mental health therapist, yoga teacher (200-hr), meditation teacher (100-hr), registered social worker (MSW, RSW), world traveller, and lifelong learner. I am an ally, an advocate, and a holder of hope. I am passionate about guiding people on their journeys toward optimum health and wellness, especially those facing challenges or barriers related to mental health.
I value authenticity, compassion, and humour. I believe in the importance of mindful breathing, spending time in nature, and the ability to laugh at oneself every now and again.
I believe in being real with ourselves and others, especially, with regards to the inevitable curveballs of life, which we all encounter in varying shades. In my experience, realness leads to connection and compassion, which are the cornerstones of human growth and development.
Thanks for visiting this space and allowing me to be a part of your journey.
Be real and be well, my friends,
“Having worked with Janice for a number of years at ROCK Reach Out Centre for Kids, I have so much respect for her as a clinician. Janice is an incredibly skilled therapist. She not only has a vast knowledge of mental health and wellness, but she also has compassion and empathy for individuals from all walks of life. She is able to forge meaningful connections with clients in order to help them achieve their personal health goals. Janice is also a trained yoga teacher, which I believe is a beneficial and unique complement to her therapeutic skills. I would happily recommend her to anyone in search of help in bettering their mental health.”
