What is Unique About Dr. Kevin Alderson? 
I am here to help. I fully embrace the "4C's" of my profession, an acronym I coined, which stands for caring, compassionate, competent, and well connected in the mental health community. You deserve the best, and that is all I offer. My ideal client is someone like you: that is, a person who is serious about improving, growing, and overcoming (or least better managing) whatever it is you need help with now. In general, I work with addictions, sexuality, sexual orientation, gender, gender dysphoria, gender identity, and relationship issues.
I am an expert in helping. I am a respectful therapist who is deeply concerned about what matters right now to you. I have been a licensed psychologist since 1986, and despite my accomplishments, I am unpretentious, present, and humble. I am competent in many forms of psychotherapy. 
I have also written 10 books in total. My 720-page textbook called "Addictions Counseling
Today: Substances and Addictive Behaviors" was recently published by Sage, one of the largest publishers of textbooks in the U.S. I have also written two other textbooks. 

Please note that I  live in Calgary so most of my clients live here, but I do offer online counselling through a secure service made specifically for physicians and psychologists (similar to Skype or FaceTime). Most people find this as
helpful as seeing me in person. You must live in Alberta, however, as this is the only province in which I am licensed to practice.
Between $190.00 and $220.00 per 50-minute session.
I earned a PhD in counselling psychology from the University of Alberta in 1998, and a MSc in clinical, school, and community psychology from the University of Calgary in 1984. I have been a licensed psychologist since 1986.
Benefits of Counselling, Therapy, and Psychotherapy with Dr. Alderson
I do not waste any time. Once you book your first session, I will email you my history questionnaire and ask that you return it to me completed before our first session. By doing so, I am ready to begin helping you as soon as our session begins. Be aware that most therapists spend the first hour collecting your background information. I cut to the chase and save both of us this time and you this money. I am an expert, and experts get the job done faster.
