Carla was born and raised in rural, Central Alberta. She grew up in a home supported by both the agriculture and the oil and gas industries. Carla went on to earn a Diploma in Rehabilitation Services, a Bachelor Degree in Community Rehabilitation & Disability Studies and eventually a Master of Science Degree in Psychology. She is midway through the completion of her PhD in Psychology and will one day soon be Dr. Carla.
Aside from having a very relaxed approach to therapy, Carla understands depression and social anxiety – not because she’s studied their clinical presentation solely from a textbook – but because she too has struggled at times with these debilitating conditions. Its these exact experiences that allow Carla to be the down-to-earth clinician that many describe her to be.
Carla is registered with the College of Alberta Psychologists (CAP) as a Provisional Psychologist. She also holds voluntary memberships with the Psychologists Association of Alberta (PAA) and the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA).
