About

Hi! I'm Kirsten. I hold a Masters in Social Work with a clinical focus and I am Registered Social Worker. I am currently working towards my designation of becoming a Registered Clinical Social Worker (RCSW) in Alberta. I take pride and care in my work as I always want to ensure each client's voice is heard in therapy. I have heavily focused my career in trauma-informed practice and believe this is the way to be true and open-hearted with all clients.
I work from a client-centered and relationship building approach. I have extensive experience working with adolescents/ adults with disabilities. I have training in CBT, DBT, EMDR and Gottman Therapy Levels I and II. My specialties focus on treating anxiety, depression, OCD, eating disorders, chronic pain, grief/loss, self-worth and PTSD.
I'm currently accepting all client's into my practice at The Calgary Therapy Institute. If you feel that I can help you navigate some of the challenges or changes that you are facing, please do not hesitate to reach out for help. For further details, please check out our website. https://www.calgarytherapyinstitute.com/team-7
