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 finding and/or (re)- connecting with their most authentic selves."

| Wellness musings with a dose of realness |
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 […]
In a culture where excessive doing has somehow become glamourized, the forgotten art of non-doing and simply being seems to be drifting further and further from our reach. As a recovering Type-A overachiever and excessive doer, whose worth has been incessantly tangled within society’s obsession with “What do you do?” I have worked hard over […]
To me, true wellness requires realness. It’s not just about drinking matcha lattes, eating plant-based, doing yoga, and meditating. There are hundreds of thousands of people and programs out there, preaching to us about how to be well and ultimately, offering us the recipe on how to change our lives. But, at the end of […]
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 incredibly old soul, with a big, bleeding heart. I am a 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 a lover of all (okay, most) things wellness and 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 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.”
