Counselling Based in Theory From a Relational Approach
Helping people is my life's calling. Being able to be with someone, feel their pain, help them to see the causes of their issues and then heal themselves is a blessing. I believe that those who seek counselling are brave and that their willingness to enter a counselling relationship demands my respect. I use my experience, intuition and evidence based techniques plus what that client brings to the table to help them heal themselves. My perception of the ultimate goal for therapy is for the client to become their own therapist.
I have years of experience working with people of all ages struggling with variety of issues. I worked for many years with college students which means that I have an inside view of the special pressures of that environment. I also have several years counselling experience with adults of FNMI descent and have worked within the Blackfoot community.
I earned my Bachelors degree in Psychology and Masters degree in Counselling Psychology, both from the University of Lethbridge, and am a Registered Psychologist. I have completed EMDR Basic Training.
Walstra Psychological Services provides a private, calm and relaxing space to share and process your concerns.

Quote of the Moment
The key to happiness is not to make yourself into a different person; it is to let yourself be even more of who you really are.
