About Me

Zenovia Ursuliak MD, PhD, FRCPC

My mission is to help people realize their greatest potential so collectively we can increase the vitality and well-being on this planet.

This mission drew me to the Executive Coaching program at Royal Roads University in April 2022 and inspired Wild Ocean Coaching and Retreats.

Since 2007 I have been a psychiatrist integrating pharmaceutical approaches with lifestyle counselling, psychotherapy, and herbal medicine. Training at the Centre for Mind-Body Medicine and the Bloom Institute of Holistic Living and Learning has expanded my approach to health.

As a physician, I facilitate online sessions with healthcare professionals to promote connection, hope and wellbeing. As an academic, I led a task force to create an organizational wellness strategy for the Department of Psychiatry at Dalhousie University, and chair the committee implementing this strategy.

I live with my family at Wild Ocean Lodge, an acreage immersed in nature, my most precious medicine.
