H i! I'm Jenelle Kildaw.
Originally from Saskatchewan, I am now a Registered Social Worker in the beautiful province of British Columbia. Over the past 10 years I have served many populations and worked in various capacities with Adolescent Group Homes, Mental Health and Addictions, Social Services - Child and Family Services, Family Services, Catholic Family Services, Corrections & Police Services with youth in closed custody and open custody facilities, St Paul's Hospital Palliative Care, Central Okanagan Hospice Association, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Saskatoon, BC Cancer Agency, etc. Within my 27 years of volunteer work and many if not all of my work experiences as a Social Worker, I have continually been brought to working with grief, bereavement and trauma and am incredibly passionate about this work! I now serve Children, Adolescents and Young Adults with a very holistic integration of reiki, heart work, yoga and grief therapy.
By the age of 32 I knew my purpose was to hold space for others and their grief journey. Without loss we can't appreciate what we have. Without love we would never experience loss. I believe it is better to love and lose than never to love at all. I've been blessed and am filled with gratitude to be able to help others harness peaceful and soulful space in this world through their own personal grief journey. I passionately provide holistic services that integrate the mind, body and heart. It is my honour to walk alongside with you.

Jenelle recently welcomed me to her space for my first ever Reiki session. She is so very patient and unhurried. It was wonderful to have a few moments to sit and unwind while she invited questions and listened thoughtfully to my answers. During the session I felt safe, comforted, and cared for. I experienced many sensations, including heat, tingling, visions of colours and light. Afterward, I felt more... gentle, calm, at ease within my own body and at ease with my place in the world. Also, some very itchy mosquito bites had calmed down. Now, two days later, I still carry on feeling a little lighter, a little more trusting that the world is an amazing place. Thank you so much Jenelle.
I've been seeing Jenelle regularly since December and she's a great counselor. She's very easy to talk to and she makes me feel very comfortable opening up. We've made some great progress so far with plans for more. Would recommend

Jenelle has a way about her that really makes you feel heard, understood and respected. She has done her own personal growth work to know what it is like to work through some really tough issues. She can be fully present with you in deep places of grief and trauma, and helps you heal through a heart to heart connection. I’ve done a lot of personal growth work and therapy over the years, and Jenelle is definitely one of the most effective and authentic therapists I’ve known. I would highly recommend working with her.
When Jenelle and I hang out our time together doesn't feel like work, but feels like fun. It's something I look forward to!
