ATTENTION: IMPORTANT COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING MASKS

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT RE: COVID-19 AND MASKS

Because of the City of Calgary COVID-19 Face Coverings Bylaw that will take place on August 1, 2020, we will be asking clients to please bring and wear a mask when you come into the office, as the building hallways and our waiting rooms are considered a public space.

As our private counselling offices are not public spaces, masks are not required for individual sessions.

If you attend skills group, please also bring and wear a mask.

If you wish to speak to the front desk staff, please call: 403-301-3399, or use our contact form.

We are currently still accepting intakes via our self-referral form.

Of course, don’t forget to take care of yourself during these times. Remember to use your effectiveness skills and make lemonade out of the lemons!

ANNOUNCEMENT: JESSICA HEIL EARNS DBT CERTIFICATION

We are delighted to announce the latest outstanding achievement of our Associate Clinical Director, Jessica Heil, who has recently completed her DBT certification through the DBT Linehan Board of Certification (DBT-LBC ), the most stringent certification available regarding the practice of DBT. Jessica is the first psychologist in Alberta to attain this achievement. We are very proud of Jessica and the standard of treatment that she has devoted herself to, and the continued expertise that she brings to our practice.

Congratulations Jessica!  |  From Donna Hughes, Executive Director

OUR BELIEFS AND VALUES

Clients are doing the best they can; just because at times they feel overwhelmed, scared, hopeless, and that life is unmanageable doesn’t mean they are not trying. Even though clients are ‘doing the best they can at this moment in time,' they still need to learn how to change behaviours through education and support. Talking, developing insight, and having support are not sufficient in making difficult changes. Guidance, direction, and accountability are needed. Clients cannot ‘fail’ in therapy; either the time for change is not right, the therapy isn’t a right fit, or the therapist applying the treatment didn’t get it right.
