ASSESSMENT SERVICES: Joyce is a registered psychologist, Canadian Certified Counsellor, and EMDR Therapist. She's also the clinical director/owner of Alberta Counselling Centre (ACC), a specialized private practice that provides thorough psychoeducational assessments and psychotherapy for children, adolescents, adults, and families. She approaches assessments with a unique understanding, developed from her experiences, as teacher, a parent, and a psychologist. Joyce is a permanently certified Alberta teacher and former high school teacher, with a strong background in educational psychology and special education.

BOOKING APPOINTMENTS: ACC provides family and individual therapy across the lifespan. Evening, weekend, and daytime appointments are available. We also have an easy online appointment calendar (albertacounsellingcentre.ca/booking) where clients can read about our psychologists, check availability, and book, cancel, or reschedule their own sessions anytime.

We take pride in providing thorough psychoeducational assessments for academic struggles, learning disabilities, giftedness, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and other mental health difficulties. We also specialize in treatment of PTSD & Trauma Therapy, using proven approaches such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
