Like all Shift Psychologists, Sarah is trained in the Shift Protocol, which is the highly effective blending of two well-researched approaches: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Bi-Lateral Stimulation (BLS). She also has experience in dialectical behavioural therapy, CBT, mindfulness techniques, play therapy, as well as couples and family therapy.


What is your name/nicknames?

My name is Sarah, and unfortunately I don’t have a cool nickname (so jealous of those who do!) The closest thing I have is; “it’s Sarah with an H”

What do you do at Shift?

I am a therapist at Shift, and I love helping people navigate through difficult emotions and rough patches in their lives.

What are your academic credentials?

I have an Honours B.A. with a specialization in Psychology, and an M.A. in counselling psychology. A million years ago I completed a diploma in nursing. (Yay, school!)

Do you have any pets?

I have the sweetest little lady named Lotus, a cross between a Boston terrier and a cocker spaniel (we think). She’s a firecracker even though she’s pushing 12 years old!

Specialty Populations/Issues:

She thoroughly enjoys helping individuals navigate and cope with emotional and mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, panic attacks, self-esteem issues, grief and loss, and diagnosed mental health disorders.


What is your favourite food?

Bread. Anything with bread.

What is a skill you are working on currently?

I’m working on being okay with being uncomfortable when things don’t go smoothly. I like to plan things out, and it’s not always easy to deal when things go sideways!

What do you do in your spare time?

I like to spend time with my family, watch movies, or do something artsy/crafty.

What is your dream car?

A black Lambo (black cars look better in the shade)

What is your go-to for a good laugh?

I love a good meme, and the “Nailed It!” series on Netflix.

The community has experienced dramatic changes in the last twenty years. Much of its residential and an increasing proportion of its commercial areas have been redeveloped to accommodate Calgary’s rapid growth. The Area Redevelopment Plan encourages the continuation of this trend in a manner which reflects community and city-wide objectives and fosters medium density residential and commercial development.
