Alexis Power
BA., M.A., Provisional Psychologist

Provisional Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists - License No. 1155p

I have been working in the counselling/psychology field for over fifteen years, supporting adults moving towards positive growth in their life. I have a diverse professional background which includes lecturing, teaching, and supporting adults in their professional development. To best support my clients, I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), couples counselling, grief support, eating disorders, sexual assault, and substance abuse.

 I utilize the insights from CBT, client centered therapy, the Gottman method, and solution focused to support my clients. I operate from a trauma informed lens and the primary scope of my practice is supporting individuals with their personal challenges and past traumas. I provide them with coping strategies, with the goal of moving them towards positive growth and healing. I use this approach in my work with couples when providing couples counselling that is aimed at repairing past injuries and traumas. I have additional  experience supporting those struggling with addiction and co-occurring disorders.

 

This field is a lifelong passion of mine and I am committed to personal and professional growth in order to continue to support those I work with. I strive to support others through a variety of challenges with a non-judgmental lens, and I firmly believe in the inherent ability of people to heal and grow.
