Hello! I’m Michelle,

MA, Registered Psychologist

I believe that everyone has the innate ability for growth and change but we don’t always know how to access this ability – that’s where I come in. I have over 20 years experience and training in mental health initially as a mental health nurse in the UK. I came to Canada in 2010 with my family where I completed my registration as a psychologist, and became a member of the College of Alberta Psychologists and the Psychologists’ Association of Alberta. I have a special interest in working with individuals with anxiety, phobias, OCD, adult ADHD, and trauma. I bring warmth, humour and experience to facilitate change and growth so that clients can achieve their personal goals. 

In my off time, I sing badly to 80s and Country music, take endless photographs of the family bunnies, and enjoy spending time socializing with friends. I am happy to have made a home here in Canada and love to spend as much time as I can taking in the great outdoors.

My Approach & Values

Life can be challenging at times, especially in today’s fast-paced world, in which daily stresses and life events can feel distressing or overwhelming at times. You may have been trying hard to manage how you are feeling but nothing seems to work.  Most of us are guilty of falling into patterns of thinking and behaving to the point that we get stuck at some point in our lives. My belief is that we all have the innate ability to overcome our struggles and are all capable of making changes to improve our everyday life and overall well-being.

Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, or adjusting to new changes or transitions in your life, I am able to help you. I provide warmth, compassion and support to help you live a more satisfying and meaningful life.

​I provide professional psychological services to adolescents (16+),  adults, and seniors. Services can be provided face-to-face at my office located in the Kensington area of Calgary; or, I also provide online therapy for residents of Alberta who are unable to come to the office or who would prefer it.

My main approaches include Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I use these approaches alongside my extensive experience in mental health nursing to tailor treatment to clients’ individual needs. My aim is to help clients process any unresolved issues contributing to their mental health concerns, recognise unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaving, develop a range of strategies and skills, learn how to cope more effectively, and ultimately become their own therapist. I bring warmth, humour, experience, and professionalism to create an environment which is supportive, caring, and facilitates change and growth so clients can achieve their personal goals.

My Experience

I have over 25 years experience and training in mental health and have worked in a range of different treatment settings. These include community mental health teams, addictions services, primary care working alongside family physicians, and private practice.

Over the years, I have developed areas of expertise including PTSD and trauma, anxiety disorders such as generalised anxiety, health anxiety, panic disorder, social anxiety, and phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), adjustment/life transitions, and self-esteem issues. I also have a special interest in helping adults with ADHD, recognising the impact it can have, not only on day to day functioning, but also on mood, self-esteem, and relationships.

My Education

I obtained my BSc (Hons) at Liverpool John Moores University, England,  in Specialist Community Mental Health, followed by a Post Grad Diploma in Psychology at the University of Central Lancashire, England.  I completed extensive graduate training in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) through the University of Manchester, and advanced training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR).  More recently, I obtained certification as a Master ART therapist in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART).

My belief is that we all have the innate ability to overcome our struggles and are all capable of making changes to improve our everyday life and overall well-being.

Read up on the various therapy services that I offer to my clients so that you can have a better picture at what kind of work we can do together to achieve your goals.

Therapy can help guide you in a multitude of areas in which you’re struggling. Learn about my various specialties including ADHD, phobias, trauma, and anxiety.
