Falling into a Networking Routine

It is the unofficial start of Fall and we are looking forward to getting back into the swing of things and into a solid routine. I find the summer to be slightly slower with everyone away on vacation but now that the kids are back in school it feels like a new year and start for businesses as well.

I would like to invite you to attend the September UNG Breakfast on Tuesday, September 10th and join me as we get back into routines and network with local businesses.

Our members have a lot of exciting news this month and I look forward to sharing this information with you in our newsletter below.

My name is Zenia Mihevc and I am a registered social worker practicing in various clinical settings for the past 13 years. I have recently opened A Little Zen – Zenia Mihevc MSW, where I offer individual and small group counselling services both “in & out of the office”. Out of the office sessions can include Forest Therapy, Hiking, Mindfulness in Nature. I believe if we Get Outside, we can Get Inside. Uxbridge is a perfect location for my practice as it is The Trail Capital of Canada and we are so fortunate to be surrounded by these lush forests.
For as long as I can remember I have had a deep love and connection to the outdoors and nature. I incorporate mindful movement in nature into my counselling sessions and have found that my clients have discovered their own voice and inner wisdom to find balance and move forward in their lives with great ease.
My practice is accessible and adaptable to meet the needs of children, youth, adults and older adults that may be experiencing challenges related to:
* Depression * Anxiety * Grief and Loss
* Substance Use * Work/Life Balance * Self-Care
* Self-Esteem* Sex and Gender Identity
* Social and Life Skills Development
* Life Transitions * Adjustment * Caregiver Stress
I offer variety of treatment modalities, including: Psychotherapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindful Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (MCBT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal and Existential Psychotherapy, and Body-Centered Psychotherapy.
