Why aren't we running like we are on fire towards our wildest dreams?
A Note about Covid-19
To all of our current and future clients:
This has been such a worrisome time in our world. With all of the changes brought on by the outbreak of COVID-19 we have had to think carefully about how we continue to help others. We are dedicated to continuing our work as long as we are healthy, though we have taken measures to keep ourselves and those we work with safe.
At this time we are offering:
In-person sessions to make exceptions for individuals for whom virtual sessions would not be feasible.
We take extra precautions by:
By maintaining 6 feet of distance from you during our sessions whenever possible
Disinfecting all touched surfaces before and after your appointment
Requesting that we both wear masks whenever possible
We ask that if you feel unwell in any way that you contact us to reschedule your session or opt for a virtual session instead
We wish everyone health, safety, hope and peace. May you find moments of calm amidst this storm and remember that this will pass.
We are a collective of Edmonton psychologists who are in love with our work and focus on providing exceptional mental health care for our community.

What makes us special? We show up at work as our authentic selves. We try to "walk the walk" by living balanced lives and taking excellent care of ourselves. We will be real with you, and we are honoured to support you through your journey toward creating your best life.
"Finding yourself is not really how it works. You aren't a ten-dollar bill in last winter's coat pocket. you are also not lost.
Your true self is right here, buried under cultural conditioning, other people's opinions, and inaccurate conclusions you drew as a kid that became your beliefs about who you are. "Finding yourself" is actually returning to yourself. An unlearning, an excavation, a remembering who you were before the world got it's hands on you. "
Our nervous systems work to protect us from threats in our environment. Nowadays those threats look more like deadlines, rush-hour traffic and appearing successful/ “put together.” The good news is that an overactive or anxious nervous system can be treated!
We believe that a negative thought process is a main contributor to depression.
By identifying what those thoughts are and changing what they sound like, we can influence your mood and emotional experience.
We often hear “I just want to figure out who I am.” Although it sounds daunting, we love this goal. Therapy is a great opportunity to explore, change or create our identities. Let us help you create a life you are excited to wake up to every day.
It’s 2021 and life is crazy. Finding balance between all of our obligations can be a challenge. We often use the metaphor that burnout happens when our “bucket is too full.” Therapy can help create some room in that bucket to handle the new challenges that life will inevitably throw our way.
