Hi - I’m Colin and I’ve found my calling in supporting couples in crisis. I live on Treaty 6 land in Edmonton and work online with anyone in Alberta. I am a Registered Psychologist who takes a person-centered approach to therapy. I match my approach to each couple or individual's place on the path to wellness. I enjoy working with couples both together and individually to improve their relationships. Through working with me, you’ll build lasting strength and capabilities you can draw on through any challenging times.
In addition to couples therapy, I am a Certified Trauma Counsellor and have experience treating those with trauma, FASD, ADHD, depression, anxiety, life transitions, work-related stress/issues, divorce, reconciliation, extra marital affairs, addictions, sexual dysfunction, anger management, 2SLGBTQ+ issues, suicidal ideation, abuse in relationships, relationship issues, conflict management, grief and loss, and crisis situations.
When I’m not treating patients here at ACS, I am completing additional training in several fields, playing music, and enjoying board games with friends and family. I have completed Level 3 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy in February 2020 and completed additional training in Couples and Addiction Recovery in May 2021. I also coordinate training and networking meetups for other local psychologists.
Knowing how challenging it can be to schedule work and family around counselling appointments, my available hours are daytime, evenings, and weekends. I am always happy to join you for a tea and deep conversation.

Hello and welcome! My name is Mateo, and my pronouns are they/them or he/him. I am a Registered Psychologist in Alberta, a Certified Canadian Counsellor, and Certified Therapeutic Art Coach. I live on Treaty 7 land in Calgary and work online with anyone in Alberta! Here is a little bit about me to help you decide whether I am the right fit for your therapy needs:
I am a Latin/Patlacheh person of colour, and an active member of my local queer and trans communities. My highest degree is a Masters in Counselling Psychology (2018) from Athabasca University. My experience comes from over 15 years of work in private, public health, and nonprofit social service and mental health work. I am a therapist, diversity trainer, activist, writer, and researcher. In my free time, I love to hike, draw, spend time with family, and spoil my cat.

I most often work with gender creative youth, gender minorities/third genders, sexual minorities, and ethnic minorities. I’m trained and experienced in using various methods including Postmodern Therapies, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Play Therapy. Typically, a session with me will not be all talk; we’ll mix in some practice, experience, and fun!
If you feel we would be a great fit for your mental health journey, I look forward to hearing from you!
Hello! My name is Rebecca. I live on Treaty 6 land in Edmonton and work online with anyone in Alberta. I’m a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) and I offer counselling services to children, adolescents, and adults (individuals, couples, and families). I have a strong interest in working with those struggling with various addictions, mental health concerns, grief and loss, and faith issues.
I completed my Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Counselling in 2006, am a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist, and Level One Theraplay (MIM) trained.

Hi, I'm Oksana! I am a Registered Provisional Psychologist. I live on Treaty 6 land in Edmonton and work online with anyone in Alberta. New findings can emerge from a guided understanding of the self. Perhaps you are finding that some of your thought patterns, behaviours, and ways of relating that at once were adaptive, no longer serve you. My hope is to facilitate and hold a safe, open, and encouraging space entirely for you in an effort to explore these further. Let’s work together to address your specific needs.
In order for therapy to be effective, your personal style needs to be considered. Your way of communicating and relating to the world and to those around you, and the manner in which you construct meaning through life experiences will be important to our work together. We will begin with the strengths and resources that you already have and figure out our next steps together.
The focus of my clinical work is with adolescents and adults experiencing anxiety and depression, difficulties in interpersonal relationships, and struggling with challenges related to mood, identity work, stress, burnout, grief, life transitions, performance, and personality. I also have experience navigating the areas of perfectionism, impulse-control, difficulties with attention and concentration, learning challenges, phobias, panic attacks, self-harm, and attachment. I respect and acknowledge cultural differences while working with clients of diverse backgrounds and orientations.
As your therapist, I aim to foster insight and develop personal growth through self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-assertion. Drawing from evidence-based approaches including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral (CBT), and dialectical-behavioral (DBT) therapies, I employ an integrative approach in tailoring the therapeutic process to meet your interests and your needs. I would like to welcome you and the potential that can emerge when we are willing to take a deeper look - let's be curious together.

I provide services to children, pre-teens, adolescents, and adults, and offer individual, family, and couples/relationship counselling. I have worked in the mental health sector for eight years, including working with adolescents in the care of Children’s Services, providing support to students and families in based out of rural Alberta schools, advocating for mental health supports to a variety of municipal, provincial and federal stakeholders, and working in a not-for-profit agency seeing clients across the lifespan and with a variety of reasons for seeking therapy.
I have certificates in Child and Youth Behaviour Strategies and Addictions Counselling from Mount Royal University. I have completed Level 2 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
I have experience working with issues such as anxiety, mood disorders, school refusal, friendship concerns, navigating family relationships, suicidal ideation/self-harm, attachment, addiction, emotional regulation, and sexual/gender identity. I have also worked with adult clients with similar concerns, along with relationships (including 2SLGBT+ and consensual non-monogamy), infidelity, and parenting. I feel we all have a huge capacity for resilience and learning and enjoy co-creating a successful therapeutic relationship with clients. Together, we can work to identify strengths, find exceptions to problems, and recognize the potential for successful interventions in your life.
I use Gottman Method Couples Therapy in my work. I draw from a variety of therapeutic interventions and modalities, including cognitive- behavioural therapy (CBT), solution-focused therapy (SFT), mindfulness, and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT). My focus is on providing a therapy experience that meets you where you’re at and respects your lived and subjective experiences, while helping you develop practical and appropriate coping skills. I approach my work with a trauma-informed lens and seek to understand how different intersectionalities contribute to therapy and mental well-being.
I sincerely look forward to co-discovering the understanding, insight, and knowledge that therapy can provide.

My approach to counselling support is pragmatic, we collaboratively find ways that best align with your strengths, preferences, and lifestyle. I support clients using concepts such as self–efficacy, mindfulness, and unconditional respect and dignity as we create the changes that you want to weave into your life story. "
