Providing accessible mental health services
to Indigenous clients within Alberta at no cost


Bear Roots is a small collective of like-minded professionals who practice from a holistic approach to wellness. We offer services in Mohkinstsis (Calgary) and surrounding areas that are anti-oppressive and trauma informed. Our services are available based on a sliding scale to ensure that financial barriers are reduced. 

The spirit and intent of our work is to play a role in (re)centring Indigenous ways of healing. Our hope is to build relationships with existing agencies that serve marginalized clients to increase accessibility through counselling, consultation, and community.


“All that we are is story. From the moment we are born to the time we continue on our spirit journey, we are involved in the creation of the story of our time here. It is what we arrive with. It is all we leave behind.

We are not the things we accumulate. We are not the things we deem important. We are story. All of us. What comes to matter then is the creation of the best possible story we can while we’re here; you, me, us, together. 


When we can do that and we take the time to share those stories with each other, we get bigger inside, we see each other, we recognize our kinship – we change the world, one story at a time…”
