About Alyson
My Background

I moved to Lethbridge in 2007 to teach at the university in the Faculty of Education. Prior to this, I taught in Ontario for 28 years. During my time teaching and preparing the next generations of teachers, I became deeply interested in the ways in which people change and grow. This led me to complete a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology and to become registered as a psychologist in Alberta.
My Clientele

I work individually with adults (18+) who wish to improve their emotional wellbeing and learn skills to help them live full and balanced lives. My particular areas for counselling are depression, anxiety, grief and loss, phobias, and trauma-related issues.

My Personal Interests

When I am not working, I enjoy hiking, travelling, and riding my motorcycle!
My Practice

I use many of the traditional approachesĀ  such as cognitive-behavioural therapy. I am also trained in attachment-focused EMDR, which is effective for phobias, PTSD, and various traumas as well as Somatic Experiencing which focuses on the ways in which the body stores the effects of trauma. I offer my services on a sliding scale based on household income.
