Hello, my name is Elizabeth. I am a Registered Provisional Psychologist in Alberta and Canadian Certified Counsellor with over 20 years of experience in various roles working with diverse clients in community mental health settings. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, families, and teens 16+.
My educational background includes completion of a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Master of Arts degree in Counselling Psychology. I aim to build strong relationships with clients through empathy and compassion to create a safe and accepting space that facilitates clients’ comfort with exploring difficult emotions and challenging experiences. Along with setting a therapeutic environment, I strive to work collaboratively with clients to deepen their self-awareness, promote change and healing, and strengthen resiliency.
I utilize approaches and interventions based on clients’ specific needs and what will be most helpful for them. I am trained in various evidence-based approaches including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT) skills, and the Gottman Method.
My areas of focus include concerns related to anxiety, stress, depression, trauma/PTSD, relationships, couples’ issues, parenting, life transitions, self-esteem, boundaries, anger, and grief and loss. I believe we can find meaning even from our most painful experiences and that while the road may be bumpy, we are all moving forward towards change. I am deeply honoured to walk with you and provide support during your change journey.
