What We Do

​We provide mental health services, including individual and group therapy, in English and Spanish. You will be seen by a psychiatrist and a mental health clinician. As we are a teaching hospital, you could also be seen by a resident in psychiatry. A report will be made available to your referring or family doctor regarding your care with us. We provide a psychiatric assessment with treatment recommendations. Our treatment model is brief, up to 6 months.

Integrative Restoration (iRest)®

iRest® Yoga Nidra was developed by Richard Miller, PhD, a clinical psychologist, researcher and Eastern scholar. iRest® is an adaptation of Yoga Nidra, Tantric practices and other Eastern teachings which have been integrated with Western psychological approaches. iRest® is a researched and established intervention for trauma, pain, chronic medical issues, mood and anxiety issues, and sleep disruption. iRest® is deeply restorative and healing, guiding the participant to recognize the underlying peace of mind and profound sense of Being no matter what the circumstances. This 8-week group program was developed for cancer patients and those struggling with chronic medical conditions. We also welcome individuals who are not in current active treatment of cancer and, family members or caregivers who are struggling to support a loved one with cancer. Dr. Tatiana Melnyk, MD, FRCPC, is a certified iRest® instructor and facilitates this group.​
