For twenty years, Carla has had a genuine passion for providing professional, ethical and confidential counselling and psychology services to the people living in rural communities throughout central and south-central Alberta.
Carla has many clinical interests, including the treatment of anxiety, panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, ADHD, pain management and sleep and wake disorders.
With an educational background in disability studies and psychology, Carla has a unique skill-set that enables her to work well with diverse populations, including, but not limited to individuals with cognitive disabilities, individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and/or those that choose to identify as a gender minority (gay, lesbian, transgender, etc.).
Depending on the nature of work Carla is doing, she draws from a variety of evidence-based treatment and psychotherapy modalities, including, but not limited to cognitive behavioural therapy, behaviour analysis, family systems therapy, interpersonal therapy and short-term and short ter, solution focused therapy.
While psychotherapy alone has proven to be highly effective in the treatment of many conditions, Carla prides herself on making her patients aware of the various other complementary treatments that may further enhance an individual’s emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing. Naturopathic medication, chiropractic care, acupuncture, physician prescribed medical cannabis, pharmaceutical intervention, or simple modifications to diet and exercise are just a few of the adjunct treatments and treatment providers that will help you get where you want to go.
