Family Therapist

Bow Valley Counselling, BA, BSW, MSW, RSW

Clinical Social Worker

#202 - 2120 Kensington Road N.W., Calgary, Alberta

I believe strongly that human beings are naturally designed to form close connections with others. Emotional difficulties can often be linked back to challenging relationships with those closest to us. I help to facilitate discussions that support individuals to appropriately deal with the issues that are negatively impacting the family's functioning. By examining how the family as a whole interacts and understanding those problematic communication patterns, change can be fostered. Through an open and supportive counselling environment, family members develop compassion and connectedness that allows for the healing of past pain.

Family Therapist

Inga Gusarova, MSc, CCC

Certified Canadian Counsellor

Available for Online Therapy

Family therapy is not only about kids or teenagers. Adult families could use help too! Dealing with significant life stresses or mental illness could affect the entire family. Or you may want to address long-standing tensions, or handle a family business where each generation sees things differently. Whatever it is, I aim to (1) help you understand each other and the patterns you may be stuck in, (2) find common goals, (3) build on your strengths, and (4) improve your skills. I work online, and research on online therapy for children is very limited. So my family therapy is for adults only.

Family Therapist

Mervin Van der Spuy, DTh-Counselling, BSc-Pharmacy

Psychopharmacologist

Suite 500 Macleod Place II, 5940 Macleod Trail SW, Calgary, Alberta

If you or a loved one are struggling with a diagnosed mental health condition such as anxiety, bi-polar disorder or depression, it is probably putting the whole family under pressure. Dr Mervin (Paraklesis Counselling) can come alongside and help families understand and cope as a unit. Often family members are unsure how to deal with their family member’s treatment needs; sometimes they place pressure on them to stop or start medication; other times they struggle to keep their loved one compliant in taking the medication. A family session with Dr Mervin will not only inform on these matters, but will also help you manage the family dynamics surrounding it.

Family Therapist

Lynne Goertzen, MA, CSAT, CMAT, RRT

Registered Psychologist

2003 - 14 Street N.W., Suite 105, Calgary, Alberta

Families are the foundations from which individuals launch their lives, and the safe haven in which we live our lives. Sometimes, families get a bit off-track or forget the gentle arts of forgiveness and positive regard for each other. The ways in which we communicate both our needs and our caring impact our experience of family. I can help you improve communication, learn effective and respectful ways to resolve conflict, and strengthen connections inside your family.

Family Therapist

Cal H. Henze, MA., R. Psych. (Prov),. CPC.,

Registered Provisional Psychologist, Registered Christian Counsellor

6707 Elbow Drive South West, Calgary, Alberta

Family in knots? Need healing? Christian Counselling for couples and families can help you understand each other, to see relationships in a new light, to learn to resolve conflict, to restore that spark of intimacy and to learn to love again. You can learn the relational skills that allow you to untie those knots and set hearts free to be what they were always supposed to be.

Family Therapist

Kate Kolskog

Supporting Wellness Psychological & Family Services

409, 8989 MacLeod Trail SW, Calgary, Alberta

Being in a relationship is not always easy. Couples therapy can help address areas of difficulty such as communication, being able to relate and support one another, intimacy, demands of work and family, and understanding the differences between one another. By learning how to effectively address these areas a relationship or marriage can develop into a secured trust and friendship.

Family Therapist

Joanna Jewell, M.A., R. Psych., CSAT, CMAT

Registered Psychologist

1511 10 Street SW, Calgary, Alberta

People exist in relation and within relationships; change affects everyone and can sometimes be uncomfortable. Where appropriate, I welcome and invite families in to avoid common pitfalls and create better environments of success for therapy. I create a non-judging atmosphere where each persons view is respected and heard. Family members often have great insight and perspective on the problem.

Family Therapist

Anu Chiarelli, RN, BA, MA, CSAT, CSOTP, CMAT

Certified Professional Counsellor, Registered Nurse, Certified Sex Addiction Therapist, Certified Sex Offender Treatment Professional, Certified Multiple Addiction Therapist

Monterey Park, NE, Calgary, Alberta

I help mothers and fathers to parent children to be physically and emotionally healthy, do well academically, have good social skills and self-esteem, be well behaved, and grow up to have healthy relationships. The focus in counselling is on the parent-child relationship. Issues that make parenting challenging are also addressed such as a parent’s own unmet emotional needs, stress, fatigue, feelings of guilt, a difficult birth experience, mental health issues, relationship difficulties, conflicts with extended family, or history of abuse. Whether your child is a newborn or a teenager, I offer help that is practical and respectful of the needs of the parent and child.

Family Therapist

Talia Zink, MSW, RSW

Masters in Clinical Social Work, Registered Social Worker

2-323 17th Ave SW, Calgary, Alberta

It is not surprising that conflicts often arise in families when many people with various personalities, communication styles, needs and ages try to co-exist. Very often one or several people within a family can feel misunderstood, disrespected or simply not connected to the others. I have passionately worked with youth and their families for over ten years. I work to support families to "see" the intentions behind each other’s often misunderstood actions so that conflicts can be resolved and relationships strengthened.

Family Therapist

Donna Murphy, MSW, RSW Cert.Ad.Ed.

Master of Social Work

2204 2 Steet SW Suite 314, Calgary, Alberta

Similar to couples work, family work often involves learning different ways to communicate and understand each other. I approach family counselling by using a lens of compassion and focus on what each family member wants from the unit. By focusing on what family members want we are able to be less problem saturated in sessions while helping family members to develop, deepen and connect with one another.

Family Therapist

Murray Molohon, M.A. Registered Psychologist

Registered Psychologist: Counselling Services of Calgary

209, 317-37 Ave N, Calgary, Alberta

There are a number of unique struggles that are experienced in families. Handling difficult parenting issues can involve couples learning to work together in finding effective and supportive methods to address their children's behavior. It is very difficult for a parent to provide everything a child needs especially in school and peer situations that have many differences in pressures and communication devices that are quite new. Helping parents learn about and overcome their own deficits can also help the relationships with their spouse and children flourish and can help parents to support their children with many concerns that might have brought them into therapy in the first place.

Family Therapist

Eunice Peterson, MA., R. Psych.

Registered Psychologist

#200, 2003-14 St. NW, Calgary, Alberta

Family counseling is a profound experience in which predictable behavior patterns are disrupted, each person is given a voice, and balance of power is realigned. All family members are brought into goal making processes and members hold each other accountable to the desired changes. The goal is to create an environment in which differences can be acknowledged and integrated most effectively.
