Registered Clinical Counselor / Canadian Certified Counselor

In T3M 1H5 - Nearby to Okotoks.

In my practice as a psychotherapist I assist individuals to understand forces within that cause suffering & confusion. My approach is engaging, compassionate and expansive. I have over 25 years of experience with many types of people from different cultures & backgrounds. I believe most people have a mixture of complex emotions & complicated life experiences. But most everyone is trying to live a better life. People often have ‘scripts’ of who they are & why they came to be living the way they are. I help people develop ways of reflecting on what has been, what is, and what might be. This opens the possibilities for more choices in life. Your life can be different if you want it to be.

In T3E 5R6 - Nearby to Okotoks.

My approach to Interpersonal Psychotherapy (ITP) is a safe, respectful, natural, and dynamic interactive process. I view the client-therapist experience as an interpersonal relationship that is founded on the principles of mutual respect and genuine caring. The therapeutic focus is largely on current relationships and how those relationships are perceived in a client’s life. Additionally, I encourage the exploration of conscious and unconscious emotional issues. Most persons possess a wealth of undeveloped strengths, assets, and capacities. Most of us use only a small percentage of our physical, mental, spiritual, and relational potentialities. By accessing a range of therapeutic techniques s....

My approach is to work collaboratively with clients using a holistic model of therapy which entails a blending of Eastern and Western modalities. For example, training in meditation, yoga, Tai Chi, proper exercise, a nutritious, science-based diet and maintaining proper sleep hygiene. Also, including talk therapy can then help to reveal core values and issues. Mindfulness training benefits clients in observing clearly thoughts and behaviours. Clients benefit greatly through the use of evidence based interventions by developing the skills needed to evaluate thought patterns and overcome destructive patterns.

I aspire to create an affirming and judgement-free environment where individuals feel safe expressing their experiences as everyone deserves to be heard and witnessed for who they are. I can provide practical guidance and support and I incorporate humour and humility into my practice. I view treatment as holistic and do not subscribe to a "one size fits all" approach. While there can be common symptoms, each person brings their own unique experiences and perspectives to the challenges which they are currently facing, because of this I will always work with you to design a practical and specific treatment plan designed just for you.

Psychopharmacologist

In T2H 2G4 - Nearby to Okotoks.

Are my personal and emotional struggles, anxiety, and depression just “all in the mind” or is there a biological basis to it? Most psychotherapy theories only focus on the “mind” and often fail to address the biological causes and treatment of mental illness. As a psychopharmacologist, Dr Mervin is uniquely equipped to counsel people with mental disorders concerning all their antidepressant and medication-related issues. His integrative approach recognizes the importance of biological (medical & pharmacological), psychological (emotions, cognition's and behavior), social (family and community), and spiritual (faith and religion) factors.

Living Well's approach to psychotherapy is research-based and holistic. Because we attend to the current needs of clients, in addition to their long term goals, therapy tends to have greater long lasting results. Symptom management is important, and can be accomplished with CBT based interventions, but lasting results from therapy are also key. Far too many people seek therapy only to have it 'not work' or work just temporarily. For a holistic, strength based, research informed approach, Living Well is the ideal place to seek help.

In psychotherapy, I respect each individual, couple, or family regardless of their gender, race, ethnicity, culture, belief or religion. My clients would benefit from me because they would feel respected and valued in my therapy sessions; my approach involves clients to engage actively in the therapy process and yet I'm gentle and respectful.

Psychotherapy sounds complicated. It does not need to be. It occurs when two people talk it can be effective or ineffective. With a combination of experience, education and practice a therapist can help create a therapeutic encounter that is beneficial and effective for a person. Raue, Goldfried, & Barkham, (1997) highlight how the therapeutic relationship is key to a client progress or engagement in therapy.

I specialize in psychotherapy (also known as talk therapy) and providing overall wellness support. Psychotherapy is meant to meet you where you are at, and to discuss specific problems and how your internal dialogue may be affecting your mood. I go at the pace my client sets, as it is important I walk alongside them on the therapeutic journey, not in front of them trying to lead. This will benefit you in allowing you to openly talk about what is going on for you, how it impacts you, and allows an opportunity to voice your truth.

Clinical Social Worker

In T2M 0M6 - Nearby to Okotoks.

Psychotherapy is a process where we explore and question what's going on in your life, to illuminate and consider new ways of self understanding. We all have a way of conceptualizing or telling ourselves and others the stories of our lives. The process you and I will begin is a way of changing the way you perceive your story. This conversation is at the heart of psychotherapy, a way of reframing or changing perspective on the way you are experiencing your life. When you know it differently, you don't change the facts, but you empower yourself to act differently within and about your life..
