The causes of mental health concerns can be complex and multi-faceted, and sufferers are often left feeling in the dark, isolated and not in control of their treatment journey. At Townsend Naturopathic Clinic in Burlington, our goal is to provide you with an individualized, natural approach to your mental or emotional concerns, and for you to feel fully involved in your wellness plan.
Are you feeling that you aren’t fully involved and in control of your treatment plan? Not heard or supported?
Are you newly diagnosed and looking for treatment options outside of conventional medications?
Are you taking medications that aren’t really helping, or are giving you unpleasant side effects?
If one of these situations describes you, you’re like one of our many patients that could benefit from our naturopathic or psychotherapy services.

Psychotherapy compliments many medical and naturopathic treatments for anxiety, depression, menopause, and chronic pain. Psychotherapy is helpful when individuals have noticed that they have developed patterns of thinking, behaving or relating that are not working or interfering with daily life.
Psychotherapy is based on a unique relationship where a safe and non-judgmental space is provided for you to share your story and struggles and in return receive a supportive place where you feel heard and understood. Together we identify the thoughts, emotions, and behaviours that cause difficulties and apply new skills and ways of thinking that help you understand and change those interfering patterns. Christina Janiga, MACP, RP (Qualifying) uses a wide range of psychotherapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and Interpersonal Therapies to help support your mental health concerns.
Christina’s psychotherapy practice is supervised by a registered psychologist and may be covered by extended insurance benefits.
