Meet Calyne


My name is Calyne Skolney (She/Her). I live on Treaty 4 Territory and honoured to work, live and heal on this land. I continue to work towards deeper connection to the land, paying respect to the ancestors of this land and devoted to reconciliation.

I am a compassionate Registered Social Worker with over eight years of experience walking alongside clients to restore health and well-being, while working in many different positions within the health care system and community settings.  I’m passionate about supporting individuals, families, and couples from a holistic, trauma informed and strengths-based lens.

My passions include helping others gain further awareness about the mind body connection, find further balance and grounding while processing emotions and allowing further abundance and happiness into one’s life. I will meet fellow travelers where they are at and support them along their journey, as stated by Ram Dass “we’re all just walking each other home”.

My Core Values:

Authenticity, mindfulness + connection, compassion, fun, courage + vulnerability
My Path

As young child I remember the loved taking picture of the sky, I would get lost in nature and spent most of my days exploring and playing outside with my older siblings. Adventure, exploration and connecting with the land was important to me before I knew how much healing power nature holds.

I struggled with my mental health and physical wellbeing as an adolescent and was supported greatly by a social worker who assisted in bringing further awareness and consciousness to myself and my existence on this earth. I do believe it was in my teenage years I knew wholeheartedly I wanted to spend my life helping other people to discover themselves further.

I went through a spiritual awakening in 2019 and knew I wanted to devote my life to finding further balance and peace while working with others to acquire the same. I dove into many holistic healing modalities, connected with a great psychologist and became more conscious of the ego, states of survival and what living in homeostasis felt like. In caring for myself further I have been able to show up further for others in my life and those who I am lucky enough to cross paths with. My compassionate spirit and caring heart allow me to connect with others and my devotion to continued personal growth, awareness and consciousness assists in being a catalyst for others along their own healing journey.

I believe as humans we have the capacity to change, with further awareness we can make different choices in this life and live a more authentic, aligned, healthy and abundant existence. Being human isn’t easy but when you have a tribe, others in your life to help ease the load and burdens you can thrive more often than just living in states of survival.
