Welcome! My name is Carol (she/her) and I’m a Registered Psychologist. I am Canadian (of Irish and Scottish origins) and live on Treaty 7 land in Calgary. I do online therapy with adults across Alberta.
I understand what it’s like to struggle and go to therapy - I know you can feel disconnected, stuck, tired, stressed, and ashamed. Maybe you feel broken or crazy, and sometimes thoughts of quitting or giving up creep in. You’re not alone. I’m here for you,
I offer you a place to feel seen, heard, understood, cared for, and encouraged. The relationship is the most important part of therapy and the biggest contributor to success. You will be empowered to collaborate as an equal, allowing you to find your voice, choice, and freedom.
When you understand your experience and how you learned to cope, you can find acceptance. I am curious, attentive, accepting, and genuinely interested in learning about your struggles and helping you notice your strengths. I honor your unique needs and I welcome people from all walks of life – come exactly as you are.
My approach to therapy is holistic - I want you to feel in control of your mind, body, and emotions. You can’t just talk your way out of trauma. Beyond strategies and tools, I draw on attachment, mindful, emotional, relational, and somatic therapies to help you experience deeper healing and lasting change. When you are safe enough to connect with your body and mind, we can process and release what is holding you back, freeing you to live based on preference, not fear.
It is possible to feel better, move forward, engage in healthy relationships, and thrive instead of just survive. I have worked for over 10 years in community mental health and private practice offering therapy, advocacy, education, assessment, and support. I completed 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 and dissociation, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, and EMDR.
