THe Shift Origins
Clint Moroz is the sole proprietor and owner of The Shift Counselling Services. The Shift Counselling Services was started in 2015. After 20 years of classroom teaching, Clint was drawn to wanting to help others with their mental health & wellness needs. Clint’s ability to form connections with others, combined with his vast experience, knowledge base and skill set led him towards the creation of The Shift.
Clint pursues his passion for helping and supporting others because of his steadfast belief that we are all called to help one another whatever that means within each individual’s circumstances and realities.
So why… The Shift?? In his own words, here is how The Shift was named…
“It was a meeting of the minds between friends and family. I wanted a title or concept that would pay respect to numerous entities. I wanted to help others move away from suffering to wellness, from angst to peace & contentment, and from unhealthy to healthy habits.
The Shift resonated with me because of my athletic history. I wanted to have some connection to the culture of, the reality of, elite athletes and the world of athletics. We work hard and we rest. Each individual/line on a team takes a shift to do hard work. While the hard work is being done, others rest and breathe. Success comes from the balance between the work and the rest. The individual shifts that are taken make the most profound difference; they shift you closer to the change you are looking for.
I believe that we all want and need to shift within our thought processes, belief systems, perspectives, and habits, at different times in our lives. Out of this conversation came The Shift...
It's hard to shift on your own, it is really hard work, and you don't have to be alone during your shift. When people shift, they move towards the best versions of themselves. It is my honour and privilege to help others shift to where they want and need to go.”

"Serious Academy of Hockey has been involved with Clint Moroz and THE SHIFT Counselling Services. Clint exceeded our expectations with his presentations. Clint's approach, knowledge, and communication skills had our student-athletes engaged and excited to learn about the pressures that they will or have been faced with. Serious Academy of Hockey would recommend Clint for any team, group, family, or individual that is looking for clarity on today's stressors that affect us."

"Our team organized a private dinner for the family of the Humboldt Bronco’s before the Benefit Concert in April 2018. As part of the evening, we had many members of the NHL Alumni meet the families at this function. It was a heart-wrenching time and concern from the Alumni was, they wanted some guidance on what to say to the grieving families. We were fortunate to have Clint volunteer his time and come speak to our group on grief and provide much-needed support for all involved. His background in sports & mental health counselling was well received and we appreciate his contributions."

"Pierre is a genuine, caring, intuitive, and skilled counsellor, he also genuinely cares! Throughout our sessions, I felt his level of presence and focus on me completely which made me feel at home and deeply cared for. A big thing that has really helped me personally is his level of intuition. He seems to be able to ask the right questions and notice little, but important things and that has not been my experience with other therapists. He also is always open to letting the session flow naturally or having it be more structured depending on what I’m in need of that day. I would recommend him to anyone regardless of your issues. Be prepared to go deep and find some true healing, Thank you!
“I really appreciated Clint’s thoughtful approach to creating a safe space for my colleagues and I to learn about mental health and self-care. Based on my own journey with mental health and self-care I understand the great value in having opportunities like these to learn new things or simply remind oneself to ‘take care’. With that being said I feel that Clint’s workshops would be beneficial for any team, organization, business, or individual invested in contributing to long-lasting positive change in their communities. Clint, your words and wisdom contributed to our team in a very meaningful way. Thank you very much for that and for keeping it ‘real’.”

““We are all just walking each other Home” by Ram Dass
Welcome, My name is Pierre Begrand, and I am a Trauma-Informed Registered Professional Counsellor, Certified International Energy Healer, Professional Life Skills Coach, and a 235-Hour Certified Registered Yoga Teacher, offering an intuitive & holistic approach to my one-on-one counselling sessions at The Shift Counselling Services, incorporating the body, mind, emotions, and spirit into my therapeutic interventions. “I believe that everything is energy, and energy cannot be created nor destroyed, only transformed, and this is the good news, meaning all humans have the potential to transform themselves.”
I am honoured and grateful to be offering my gifts of intuition and professional counselling skills to the community of Saskatoon and the surrounding area, as I myself grew up in northern rural Saskatchewan on a grain and livestock farm and was faced with many mental health challenges as a young male and was able to better manage these challenges throughout my healing journey of incorporating counselling, energy healing, meditation, yoga, and more! “You can’t rush your healing” by Trevor Hall If you’re interested in knowing more about the counselling work that I offer, please feel free to book a free 15-minute consultation to ask any questions or concerns you may have about how my approach may look, or if you feel called to work with me, you’re more than welcome to book online or text/email myself directly to book in, thank you, and I look forward to guiding you along your empowering and healing journey!
“Clients are met with a non-biased, compassionate, empathic heart helping guide them along their counselling journey.”
I have experience working with the following: Addictions, ADHD, Anger, Anxiety, Behavioural Issues, Depression, Existential Crisis, General Life Stressors, Guilt & Shame, Grief & Loss, Inner Child Work, Lack Of Purpose, Life Transitions, Loneliness, Low Self-Esteem/Confidence, Financial Stress, OCD, Overwhelmed, Trauma, Relationship Issues (Friends, Family, Marital, Partner, Etc.), Self-Sabotage, Spiritual Trauma, Spiritual Guidance, and Career Guidance.
Favorite Song or Artist: "Be Free" by Sol Rising - I love this song, because it is what I seek in my own personal life, to be free, and let myself "be", rather than doing this life, just be this life. This song brings much wonder and space into my mind, emotions, and spirit, and that is where I feel most at home and as my true self :)
Working with people to help find solutions during difficult times is something that has always captivated me and led me to become a therapist. I believe in asking for help when we are stuck, and that our life is an ecosystem; small (and big) changes can disrupt us and sometimes leave us feeling like we do not know what to do. This normal, however normal does not have to mean good, it means that it is common. What is not as common is asking for help.
I have over a decade of experience as a counsellor, from community and family outreach, care coordination, and medical social work, to individual (adult and youth), family, and group therapy. I am also a Qualified Mediator with the Alternative Dispute Resolution Institute of Canada, and a student member of the Canadian Sports Psychology Association. Through this work, I have developed an approach that focuses on building resiliency and self-compassion.
I would say that my practice is focused on building, maintaining, and creating healthy relationships with individuals, families, and communities by using evidence-based approaches to therapy. I enjoy music, reading, journaling, being outdoors, running, gardening, and staying active but most of all spending time with my wife and two sons.
Areas of Focus or Specialties:Adult and Youth counselling, Sport and Athlete focused counselling, Self-Compassion, Resiliency Building, DBT, CBT, Solution Focused Therapy, ADHD, Relationships, Couples Therapy, Impulse control, Time Management, Goal setting & achieving.
I cannot pin down a favorite Musician or a Song because it changes from day to day. Right now, the song I keep going back to is Wasted by William Prince.

Favourite Band: I love country music, it is absolutely my favorite and I can’t pick a favourite song. I can say, though, that my favourite band is The Tragically Hip. I absolutely love the lyrics/poetry.
Meagan holds a bachelor’s degree in social work and is a Registered Social Worker with the SASW. She was raised on Treaty 6 Territory & The Homeland of the Metis Nation and still calls this home, alongside her partner and their two cats.
Meagan is a kind and gentle soul who cares deeply about the wellbeing of her clients. Her empathetic nature and sense of humor are often the first thing people notice about her. She feels her greatest asset as a counsellor is her lived experience relating to mental health and being a member of the 2SLGBTQ community. Through her lived experiences she can offer unique perspectives and insights.
Meagan believes that healing is best facilitated through genuine connection to one another, and as such she strives to provide a safe and affirming space for her clients in order to establish a strong therapeutic relationship. Meagan feels there is great power in being able to share your story and being heard and validated in doing so.
Meagan’s specialties and areas of focus are: anxiety, depression, self-esteem, inner-child work, self-harming, trauma, suicidal ideation, eating disorders, and 2SLGBTQ+ issues.
Meagan is accepting new clients ages 10+.
Favorite song & why:
One of Meagan’s long time favorite songs is “Rise by Rainer Maria” because of this specific lyric within the song, “for each inch cut, the root grows ten.” This lyric resonates for Meagan because for each hardship she has endured, her resiliency has grown deeper and stronger.
I was born and raised in Treaty 4 Territory. I was shaped and molded by the teachings of my grandparents from my mother’s side. I am a father, a breakdancer, and a fan of all things that contribute to mental wellness. In my spare time, I enjoy listening to music of all kinds, taking photos of freight train graffiti, and chasing my son around the house. I do believe coffee deserves an honorable mention here as well!
Currently, I am a registered Social Worker and have over 9 years of experience working with children, youth, and families. I am also the Outreach Coordinator for a local non-profit known as B.G.C.S. (formerly known as the Boys & Girls Clubs of Saskatoon). In my work, I strive to understand individuals and situations wholistically, while acknowledging that there is always more than meets the eye (yes, that is a Transformers reference!). I believe that as individuals we are all a direct result of the people, places, and situations that we (and our ancestors) have experienced.
I hold myself accountable to those that mean the most to me, my family, my friends, my partner, and our son. For them, I do my best to serve others in a good way, to walk through life with an anti-oppressive and decolonial perspective with the hope of leaving places better than I found them.
Areas of focus or specialties: Youth and adult counselling, Grief and loss, Trauma (PTSD, intergenerational trauma) , Depression and anxiety, Addictions, and substance dependency.
Favorite song or artist: One of my favorite songs is “Qu’Appelle Valley Saskatchewan” by Buffy Sainte-Marie. This song holds a special place in my heart because Buffy is singing about the same area of Saskatchewan that I had the privilege of growing up in, Qu’Appelle Valley. For me, this song is about being proud of who you are and where you come from, two things that I believe are vital to the human experience.
One of my favorite artists is Linkin Park. The thing I appreciate about Linkin Park is their ability as a band to create so much emotionally charged music. I thoroughly enjoy how Linkin Park’s music communicates the emotional complexity of the human condition, and that it is okay to be vulnerable in our expression of that condition.
