COUNSELLING AND WELLNESS SERVICES
What We’re About
Involution Inc. is an integrative practice focused on mental health and wellness. Our clinicians regularly work with members of the general public, Veterans, and first responders who struggle with a variety of concerns, including: depression, anxiety, stress management, anger, trauma, PTSD, grief, pregnancy loss and infertility, insomnia, relationship difficulties, self-esteem difficulties, and other emotional and behavioral issues.
Mental health is impacted by a variety of different factors, including physical and emotional wellness as well as your environment.
With this understanding, we provide clients with comprehensive treatment using a variety of modalities, including: cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), evidence-based trauma treatment, including Prolonged Exposure (PE) and Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), Gottman therapy for couples, Numa Breathwork, sound therapy, and mindfulness-based treatment.
We believe that true foundational healing fundamentally involves recognizing and working with the mind/body connection. Our practice utilizes evidence-based treatments that enable us to work with both the mind and the manifestation of emotional experiences that get stored in the body.

She believes that effective counselling fundamentally involves working both with the mind and the manifestation of emotional experiences stored in the body.
Advanced Hypnotherapy is Psychotherapy that uses the natural, relaxed state of hypnosis to access the subconscious part of your mind. Through the subconscious mind, one can create positive and lasting changes. If you want to overcome self-limiting thoughts, feelings, or behaviours, your subconscious mind is a powerful tool in creating that change.
Numa Breathwork is a practice that utilizes the easy method of conscious breathing together with mindful explorations in movement and the therapeutic vibration of sound. This is a practice in returning to natural, unrestricted breathing. The practice starts with mimicking, as best as possible, a natural breathing experience and ends with being breathed.
Breathwork for First Responders
Breathing Training is a must for people who work in high stakes, high stress, or life or death situations. Breathwork Training is a key skillset that high performing individuals need. People whose job it is to save lives, manage crisis situations, and coordinate emergency activities need to have a head on their shoulders and be in touch with their hearts.
Mindfulness is different from our default mode. Developing a steady and non-reactive attention is often radically different from the way we are in the world, helping us be present in our lives and giving us some control over our reactions and repetitive thought patterns.
Breathwork for Children
Imagine what life would be like if your beliefs were counteracted before you see them as fact? Consider the possibilities of knowing the truth much earlier. The younger we are, the less armoring we carry. In the absence of resistance to the process, the breath can do its job quickly.
Everyone has a Story
Judy is an incredible teacher and masterful breathwork facilitator. The time we’ve spent together created a kind of easeful abundance that I did not know was possible. Judy’s words, presence, and encouragements are so ripe with love and integrity that resting in them created a transformative trust for me. Thank you, Judy.
My experience of Judy’s support during breathwork is deeply nurturing, loving, kind, intuitive and fluid. She has an exquisite understanding of the body’s many layers of expression, and with a gentle and strong touch, and presence, bit by bit, she helps to realign my body’s patterned propensities, while guiding me to bring awareness and care to my ever-evolving physical and emotional state. I trust in the space she holds, and I feel as though we are working together – to uncover, discover and embrace all that arises. I so appreciate you Judy!
The care with which Judy approaches each and every person is remarkable. She sees, she listens, and she supports with all of her awareness, and senses. I have received 1:1 support from Judy during numerous breathwork sessions and I can honestly say that her skill and presence is a profound gift
Judy holds such a clear, grounded and present container for you to dive deeply into this work. She taps into a profound place of love, holds compassion and understanding for this “being human” journey. I have shared intense moments with her where I have felt truly seen on a soul level. Her encouragement and guidance has opened me to a deeper level of trusting my inner voice again. I am truly grateful for her support, playfulness, wisdom and her fierce heart!
