Thanks for stopping by! I'm Jennifer and I am an Integrative Counsellor and am on a life-long mission to spread love and facilitate healing. For the past 8 years I have been honoured to work with young people under 25, and their families. My deep passion for supporting and empowering people is achieved through an integrated, empathetic, strengths-based approach to counselling.

Ms Zakis helped me through countless ordeals. I would not be in a position of healing and positivity without her contributions. Her patience and kindness is unending. More...

Working with Jennifer was a turning point in my son’s life. Jennifer met him where he was and created a safe place for him to talk when he was suffering with trauma, mental health and learning challenges. He would only talk to her for a long time and I was so glad she had him in his corner. She balanced empathy and support with also giving him the language and tools to regulate and advocate for himself. Jennifer also helped me to learn how to support him with no judgement. My son is successfully thriving in post secondary now and it’s not an over statement to say that he would not have been there if it were not for Jennifer. She is a kind soul and an absolute rockstar in her field. More...

Working with Hand to Heart and specifically Jennifer Liantzakis, has probably been one of if not the best experience when it came to not only working on my mental health,but life in general. Patient and so open minded, I was able to be my most authentic self while also feeling safe and supported. Jen offers such a different experience from other services as she brings in different and open ideas that fit each individual and what they need. While creating a fun, loving and safe environment. As a person who has always struggled with being honest about myself and finding trust in others, there is no one I would recommend more than Jennifer Liantzakis. More...

Being able to be myself in a busy environment which made me very uncomfortable and stressed.However the runner of this amazing program helped guide me through it all.

Jen is amazing! I’ve even referred her to friends because I think so highly of her.
She takes a different, multi-faceted approach to her sessions and is very in tune with her clients (I know this because I’ve had feedback from people other than myself whom I have referred).
I love the different methods she utilizes and that she allows for all schools of thought within her sessions, bringing a very rounded and spiritual feeling to her sessions as well as remaining grounded in the more traditional form of therapy.

10/10 would recommend!


I love connecting and conversing with young people. Our youth bring such refreshing and authentic perspectives to the table. They keep me on my toes and challenge me in ways I am never expecting. I value the circle of service- I give time, energy, and knowledge to my clients and my clients give time, energy, and knowledge to me. Working with children and youth on a daily basis allows me to stay connected to my inner child. I am grateful that my profession allows me to colour, dance, move, play, and experience the world through the eyes of an innocent and curious mind.

I have worked for many years within a variety of mental health and social service agencies. Doing so has given me the opportunity to connect with young people from all walks of life. These experiences showed me that many of our systems, especially in regards to mental health, are deeply flawed. 2019 was finally the time for me to step out on my own and start a practice serving clients in the best way I know how- client centred, strengths based, and integrated!

If you are a young person (or parent of a YP) looking for support and guidance while you discover your own truth, tap into your internal knowing, and find the tools that best fit your life, then you came to the right place. I will offer insights, perspectives, and practices, and together we will explore what works for you.
I provide 30 min free consultation calls to helps us both determine if we can enter into service together. Connecting with the right counsellor can be challenging, and since this can become a very important relationship in your life, I want you to feel free to ask any questions you need to before booking a session. I will also be asking questions of you to help me determine if my skillset is a good match for your wellness goals.

Yes! I use Zoom for video calls, and am willing to have telephone calls intermittently. Due to the movement and breath work components, it is beneficial for my client to be able to see me demonstrate, and for me to see them practice.

I work with each person individually to asses their needs for safety and accommodate accordingly.
