Meet The Team
Sherry Schneider ~ Owner / Medical Aesthetician
Founder and owner of ORCHARD Wellness & Treatment Center, Sherry started her career in Aesthetics in the late 90's. Her career has been led with a strong desire for serving people, and more importantly a desire to learn and achieve higher levels in continuing education in the clinical field of treatments as a Medical Aesthetician. Her approach is to listen to her clients concerns, issues and goals, offer realistic and educated advice, then customize the services to reach the desired outcome. Her mission is to create a positive impact on her clients with results driven treatments and overall experience. She opened and started the business in 2005, and still feels so much joy in watching it evolve and expand to offer her clients more! As a mom to 2, now grown children, and a bonus mom to an additional 3, she stays quite busy, however doing what she loves and being able to help her family with her small business means the world to her. She looks forward to meeting you and welcoming you into the warmth of ORCHARD.
Dr. Justine Doczy - Naturopathic Doctor
I was born in Stratford and raised in a small community outside of the city. As a teenager I worked at Hillside Manor in the dietary department, and then at Spruce Lodge as a resident assistant. Working in long term care homes sparked my interest in pursuing a career in health care, and I eventually decided to pursue a degree in medicine.
I studied at Brock University in St. Catharines where I received a Bachelor of Science in Medical Sciences. While there, I met my husband who was diagnosed with stage 3 melanoma a year after we started dating. After undergoing a year of immunotherapy, he discovered naturopathic medicine, and started seeing a naturopathic doctor who helped him get on a path to better health to give him the best chance of remaining cancer free. I fell in love with naturopathic medicine, as it gave us hope that we could do more to keep the cancer from returning.
In 2017, I applied to and was accepted into the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, where I completed a four-year degree and received a Doctorate of Naturopathy. I began practicing in 2022 and my passion for helping others feel their best, and achieve their health goals grows every day! There is nothing more rewarding than seeing my patients feel better after suffering, in some cases, for many years.
When I’m not working with patients, I’m either running, baking, or doing DIY projects around the house. I also have a busy toddler who likes to keep me on my toes and a wonderful husband who supports me in everything that I do.
I’m thrilled to be back serving the communities in the area that I grew up in!

Jacquie Smith ~ Registered Massage Therapist
Hello! A little about me… I graduated with honors in 2016 from Academy Canada in St John’s, Newfoundland. I spent a couple years practicing in clinics in Newfoundland and made the big decision to move back to Ontario in 2018 to be closer to my adult children.
I’ve had the opportunities to practice in both clinic and spa settings over the last several years, with a focus always being on the body as a whole. I incorporate an element of relaxation into my treatments as it is an essential component of health and wellness . I will work with you to address areas of concern and in need of attention while coming up with individualized treatment plans to optimize goal results.
I’ve had the privilege to work with and have people of all ages, stages of life and with many different chronic and acute conditions trust me with their concerns. As well as regular RMT treatments I’m happy to offer additional treatment types to further your well being. I offer unique healing treatments alongside.
Along with my cat, my family….(cat first of course ha!) anything to do with plants or gardening as well as practicing Tai Chi brings me joy.
I look forward to joining the team at ORCHARD starting in December and assisting you in your path through this crazy journey we call life.
I absolutely love what I do, and am passionate about helping people achieve relief and care. I look forward to joining the team at ORCHARD starting in December and assisting you in your path through this crazy journey we call life.

Danielle Hunter ~ Aesthetician
Hello, I’m Danielle Hunter. I have been a multi-certified aesthetician for 12 years. I’ve always had a creative side that drew me into artistic areas such as singing competitions to arts and crafts, so I was naturally drawn to the diverse creativity of aesthetics. The fact that I have the ability to use my educated and natural skills to help make someone look and feel great is music to my soul!
I’m a mom of three amazing kids who have inspired me to step outside my comfort zone and continue to grow in my career. My next venture starting in September of 2023 is to relocate and expand my business as now known as Infinity Aesthetics within Orchard Wellness & Treatment Center, with this, offering me a space to grow and connect with other providers and professionals.
I can’t wait to show you my space and meet you!
Tanielle O’Hearn, MSW, RSW
As none of us are immune to life’s challenges, I am certainly no exception. I truly believe that those of us who have acquired scars and have done our own work are the ones who make some of the most effective helping professionals. As a clinician, and a HSP (highly sensitive person), I offer my clients authenticity, empathy, and compassion informed by not only my professional but also lived experience. I have not walked your path, but I have walked one that led me to reach out because what I was carrying became too heavy to carry alone. I truly respect the strength within my clients that allows them to show up and be vulnerable - as I came to respect it in myself. The space I offer is genuine, safe, free of judgement, (and at times will likely come with humor); where you will be truly seen and heard.
I am a Registered Social Worker with a Masters of Social Work degree from King’s University College at the University of Western Ontario. My passion is empowering individuals and couples with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to break free from where they might feel "stuck" and reclaim their wellbeing and relationships.
Through both therapy and coaching, I specialize in working with women and have experience supporting those who struggle with low self-confidence, have difficulty finding their voice, are in a transition or at crossroads in their life, struggling with or rebuilding after a relationship(s), need help setting healthy boundaries, have had difficult childhood experiences, and those who have experienced trauma.
What you are going through right now might feel overwhelming, and I know you're unsure of whether or not things can change - but you are so much stronger than you think you are. You are here showing up for yourself and making the decision to get the support you need; despite everything you’ve been through. Know that you and your happiness are so worth this investment. Things can change, healing is possible - and taking this step is how that process starts.

Jacob Adams ~ MSW, RSW
I want to start by acknowledging the strength and courage it took for you to come this far. Whatever the reason is that brought you here; I want you to know that it is important enough to seek support.
I have heard all too often from individuals that what they are going through is not valid or worthy of support, but everyone experiences twists and turns in life and you are worthy of support through them. I want to help you create a road map designed for your unique situation, so that you can find peace and joy in the journey.
The space that I aim to create is filled with kindness, empathy, and hopefully some humour. I use a combination of CBT, DBT, EFT and ACT in my practice. Admittedly this may sound like an excessive list of acronyms… but the truth is that no problem can be fully worked through with a single model or theory. My goal is to help you find the skills, exercises, and ways of thinking that will work best for you and your unique journey.
If you are curious about me, I started my journey to providing therapy while supporting individuals in residential care. While supporting adults who had diverse needs, I learned the value of coming along side an individual, learning what they need in the moment and providing client focused support. From there I joined the school board as a support staff working with all ages and stages, helping facilitate their learning. From there I knew that supporting individuals in their journeys was my passion. I went to Laurier and completed my Masters of Social Work where I became even more passionate about clinical therapy. It is a space to come alongside and co-create strategies tailor made for each individual. My undergraduate degree in Child Youth and Family Studies, as well as my personal experience as a parent and partner has further focused my hope to help support couples, families, and youth walking through difficult seasons.
Whatever season you are in, I am looking forward to hearing from you and helping you find your unique path to your goals.
Kristy Jantzi ~ Hairstylist
Hello, I'm Kristy Jantzi!
I've been a hairstylist for over 12 years and absolutely love this career. My interest in hairstyling started as a little girl when I would practice on Barbie dolls, my trolls and a few willing cousins! I thoroughly enjoy listening and trying to bring to life my clients visions, however precision cutting, colouring and casual informal styling are my favourite services to provide for my guests
I was fortunate enough from day one in the hair industry, to have the privilege of working alongside some inspiring talented women who have been such positive role models and mentors.
I ventured out and started my own business within ORCHARD Wellness & Treatment Center in early 2019. I love being able to offer my new and existing clients the experience that OWC offers with its tranquility, privacy and it's chic vintage hair room - a place where you can be pampered and cared for head to toe with its wide range of wellness and treatment options.
