Jessa Tiemstra B.A., M.C., (Student) Child and Family Counsellor | McAtee Psychology | Alberta

I am passionate about helping people become the best version of themselves, whether that’s overcoming inner struggles with depression and anxiety or taking a critical look at unhealthy thoughts. I believe in working together to find healthier alternatives. My approach is client-centred and focuses on personal values, hopefulness, and authenticity. I draw on techniques from a variety of counselling models such as cognitive-behavioural therapy and narrative therapy. At the core, I believe people can change, relationships are essential, and that when therapy is good personal fit it works best.

I have lived in Calgary almost all my life and am happy to call this place home. I graduated from the University of Calgary in 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts with Distinction in psychology. I am currently completing my Master of Counselling Psychology through Athabasca University, and am a counselling intern at Pyramid Psychology and McAtee Psychology. At my practicum sites, I am developing expertise in working with children, teens, and adults. While most of my work is individual, I am also involved in working with families and group therapy sessions.
