Crossroads Healing Centre is a place “Where everyone matters”. That is why we have assembled a team of people who not only are good at what they do, but they are dedicated to ensuring that all persons who receive services from Crossroads can expect to be treated with respect and dignity regardless of gender, age, race, socio-economic background, sexual orientation, religion and non-religion.
Crossroads has brought together skilled counsellors professionally trained in marriage and family therapy, and/or psychology and who are members in good standing with their professional associations. Counsellors are required to engage in ongoing professional development, peer support and supervision. Working with other agencies, resources, and professionals in our community assures that each client is well served. Empowering our clients to take responsibility for their well-being, make better decisions, and independently utilize supports and resources in the community, is one of our main goals.

Connie Lassiter, B.Ed, MA (Counselling Psychology) Registered Psychologist
Connie is a Registered Psychologist and a member of the College of Alberta Psychologists, Psychologist’ Association of Alberta, and the Canadian Psychological Association. She worked for many years, as a classroom
teacher, and realized that improving an individual’s emotional needs was a prerequisite to learning. While working full-time, she achieved a Masters of Arts degree in Counselling Psychology from City University, Seatle.
Connie prefers a competency, collaborative approach to helping. Despite an individual’s struggles, she believes all individuals possess the strengths and power within themselves, their families, and communities to make positive changes in their lives. She deems the therapeutic relationship as “key” to helping clients. Through non-judgmental support and respect, the client determines what needs to be different in their lives and works with the counsellor to set goals. Every individual is unique, so helping sessions are formulated to meet an individual’s needs. Counselling provides space for clients to tell their stories, to be acknowledged, and ultimately be understood.
