Specialty Populations/Issues:

My specialty areas are couples, anxiety (particularly social interaction based anxiety), and general life lack of happiness.

Alyson is an welcoming and dedicated Registered Psychologist. Like all of the Shift counselling team, she utilizes the Shift Protocol – a unique and effective semi-structured approach that incorporates elements from two well-researched approaches: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

About Alyson

Alyson loves stories in all shapes and sizes, so it should be no surprise that my favourite thing to do is read (or listen).  My favourite place to spend time in Edmonton is escaping locked rooms by solving puzzles with my friends.  I love seeing how the differences in the way we think help all of us to get freedom.  Marble slab is my favourite eatery. And not just for their marketing slogan on the cups of find happiness within, but also for the beautiful ice cream they contain.  In terms of actual food 😉 I enjoy the Dish, Moxie’s, and Mongolian Grill.

She specializes in working with individuals of all ages and is well versed in the treatment of mood disorders, stress, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and family of origin concerns. But what is she really like? Her approach is all about believing people can change themselves and working from a solution seeking strengths-based perspective. Her open-minded desire to dive into the root of issues, instead of merely the symptomology, is aided by her genuine and calm bearing that really makes a difference. She has worked within schools and other private practices with a gamut of individuals, ranging from children to older adults – bringing a broad spectrum of experience to her psychology practice. When Alyson is not active in therapy, you can find her immersed in philosophy, jumping on the trampoline with her niblings, exploring the world, or reading like a maniac.
