Live Your Best Life With The Mainstream Approach

Understand and accept the pieces that make you, you”

The path to healing can be a daunting one. Just accepting the fact that you might need help is an extraordinary step to take, and for many of us the journey is fraught with uncertainty, and even fear.

To have a guide who is both experienced and caring, makes that journey achievable.

Mainstream Therapy understands this, and was created to help individuals unlock the many complexities that make up our personalities. Through a unique blend of traditional psychotherapies and energy healing techniques, Angel Powers leads clients on a holistic and creative exploration of mental well being.

As one of Barrie’s therapists practicing both Reiki and psychotherapy, Angel provides an evidence-based approach that offers people in need an opportunity for meaningful and lasting change.

With a variety of options that can be suited to almost any mental health concern, the Mainstream Therapy Approach has worked for many others. It can work for you too.

Take your first step. Peace and potential await.


Would you like to have a house on the waterfront?  Well, a rare opportunity to live on the water in a much sought after East End of Barrie?  A custom-built main house, very close to Johnson’s Beach and minutes from downtown has come onto the market.

It is an open space concept house with great views of the lake, on a cold day with a coffee a great way to start the day looking over your own spectacular view.

It has a large open plan kitchen for just you and your family, or for larger gatherings.  Sit down at the dinner table and see the lake view from here as well, as you do from all principal rooms.

Large master bedroom, with that view again, we could wake up to that, makes waking up a lot easier.

Now we do like something unusual when we feature a house, well this one comes with its own separate cottage.  Great for visitors to give them their own space, or maybe for parents.  We thought this was a really neat feature, almost two for one, if smaller than the main house.

Large back garden to enjoy summer, and we could imagine ourselves enjoying the view from the deck with a bottle of wine, to share of course!

With its own dock to dive into the lake or do a bit of fishing.

If you are looking for an executive bungalow take a look at this beauty.  The home is located in the north of the city not far from Johnson’s Beach.  As you know we like to find homes with some unusual features, well keep reading.

Spacious living area to have guests around and entertain.  This is a very well maintained home with a lot of extras.

A large kitchen to prepare gourmet meals with all stainless appliances.

Now I love movies so I would love to have this cinema in my house, mind the kids would still commandeer it for their PlayStation, but this is not the hidden secret.

It has a beautiful inground swimming pool with a covered area to get out of the sun if you need to.

Or if you need to have a hot sauna to ease out the aches and pains of the day, the house has it.

This what we thought was really neat, if you are like me and have teenagers they would love this.

After all that you will definitely need to relax at the end of the day and have a nice glass of wine, or as we heat up maybe an ice-cold beer.

This week’s we go south of Barrie to Little Avenue just off of Hurst Drive.  As you know we look for something that is a bit unusual, in a good way.  So read on to see what we found.

It features a very large finished basement for some big family nights.

A large living room on the main floor with large windows for great light.  In the winter the stone fireplace provides warmth as you look out at the snow.

This is what we thought was really cool.  To do all the entertaining you need a gourmet kitchen, we love this.  It has a large dining area attached, where all good parties end up.

With a large master bedroom with a walk out onto the patio.

When it gets warmer a really nice patio to relax with a glass of wine looking out on a secluded backyard.
