The Eating Disorder Support Network of Alberta (EDSNA) is a non-profit organization and a registered charity dedicated to providing meaningful support to those affected– directly and indirectly– by eating disorders. EDSNA provides information, guidance, a provincial voice, a community hub and most of all, support. We offer professionally-facilitated support groups in Edmonton, Calgary and online. Thanks to ongoing funding from Alberta Health, Addictions and Mental Health Branch, we are able to offer these groups at a very low cost to the participants and can even waive fees if people are experiencing financial difficulty.
I am committed to supporting you in reaching your goals and will work together with you. I hope that we will create a positive relationship with one another and I commit to listening to you, respecting you, and giving you the space you need to explore your thoughts and move towards discovering new skills and solutions. Change takes courage and first steps are the hardest but I believe that "happiness is an inside job" and I commit to taking this journey together.
I have over 25 years experience with a wide range of clients and service settings and enjoy supporting those undergoing significant life transitions, be that career, primary relationships, geographical setting, etc. My clients find me to be kind, respectful and caring, with good listening skills and the ability to support their strengths, abilities and potentialities. I work well with those suffering from depression, anxiety, troubled self-esteem/confidence and those who are interested in finding their own unique solutions to life's challenges and opportunities.
December 2020: NO NEW CLIENTS CURRENTLY. Using mind-body-spirit therapies, we focus on resilience, what and you love, how you have dealt with past issues, what you have already created or accomplished in life. What is your "intention" personally, in relationships, for work/creativity? Anxiety, depression, trauma, living well with chronic pain, health, relationships, work place, loss of meaning or direction in life, and creative performance. I am best suited to clients who are interested in incorporating body-mind modalities as well as "talk". Teleconferencing (Zoom, FaceTime) works very well .
The quote from William Shakespeare, "give thy negative thoughts no tongue" is an analysis of our internal thoughts process; what we believe, we become. Your internal held beliefs do not have to define your life. I can help you change your thoughts so you can change your world. Your internal thoughts have caused your life to spiral out of control. You may be struggling with a list of things including: depression, anxiety, substance abuse and/or divorce. Its time to change your thinking and bring your potential into focus.

It isn’t necessary to stay stuck (or alone) in painful situations or challenging circumstances. Therapy/counselling provides an opportunity to uncover and discover new understandings, strengths and resiliencies in self (and others). Therapy provides a safe space to develop action plans to explore difficult life, or work transitions including separation, divorce, and job and career changes. Therapy also provides a safe space to explore and develop skills in managing mental health challenges such as anxiety, depression, OCD, ODD, etc. No problem is too big for therapy.

Hello! My name is Julie D’Astous and I am a registered psychologist who works exclusively with children and adolescents.

I believe that you are the expert in your own life and goals should be a collaborative process. My role is to motivate that inner strength, knowledge, and ability to attend to your needs in a way that sets you up for success.
