Dr. Melanie Leclerc - Chiropractor


Dr. Melanie has been serving the Bow Valley at Cafe of Life Chiropractic for more than a decade. She believes that dysfunction or negative symptoms in the body is its way of asking you help it heal - a call to action to achieve wholeness, and therefore wellness.

The state of the nervous system literally controls our connection between the mental, physical and spiritual levels. When the nervous system works optimally and the spine is aligned, we experience true health on all levels.   

Helping you to reach your maximum potential for balanced health is Dr. Melanie's passion!

Margaret Claveau - Certified Counsellor


Margaret is a long-time resident of the Bow Valley. In her first career, she taught French immersion in Montreal and Canmore. Now, she has taken early retirement to follow her other passion and completed a Master’s Degree of Psychotherapy and Spirituality, with a practice focus upon helping people manage grief and loss. 

Grief and loss are inevitable in life. Margaret will help you learn to live with grief in a healthful manner. She provides techniques to deal with anxiety, cope with the pain, and to find ways to mourn.

Margaret companions her clients through the grieving process. Together with her clients, they define the type of loss, determine the factors that make the loss unique, assess coping strategies and list available resources. Then they explore the physical, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual responses to the loss.

Counselling is soul work. Counselling as soul work enables clients to return to and/or redefine their core beliefs. Core beliefs, aligned with a person’s true self, contribute to a life lived with meaning and purpose.
