What is a Trauma Informed Therapist?

A trauma informed therapist understands the impact of trauma on the body and mind, recognizes the signs in clients, knows how to facilitate recovery, and practices in a way that reduces the likelihood of further perpetuating those traumas. I make your safety and empowerment my top priority.

My name is Carol Korenowski and I am a Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists, and a Certified Canadian Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. I have served and supported youth and adults for over 10 years offering therapy, advocacy, education, assessment, and support. I have worked in community mental health and private practice empowering individuals, couples, and families to find acceptance and success.

 

My education includes a Master of Counselling with Distinction (2018), a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with Distinction (2010), and a Bachelor of Community Rehabilitation & Disability Studies with Distinction (2010). I have specialized knowledge and training in Trauma-Informed Care for Individuals & Families, Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) Level 1 & 2, Yoga for Emotional & Physical Trauma, and Dissociative Disorders.

 

I am committed to providing effective, holistic therapy where you can find peace, healing, and a healthy relationship with yourself and others.
