Paraklesis Counselling (Psychopharmacologist), DThCoun, BScPhar in Calgary
I offer selective professional counselling therapy for individuals, couples and families, specialising in helping people with medication related counselling issues. I am also an experienced couples, marriage, sex, and family therapist. I specialise in pharmacologically informed psychotherapy - coming alongside those with medication related counselling issues. My integrative approach recognises the importance of biological (medical & pharmacological), psychological (emotions, cognition's and behaviour), social (family and community), and spiritual (faith and religion) factors.
As a psychopharmacologist, I am uniquely equipped (B.Sc.-Pharmacy & D.Th.-Counselling) to consult/counsel people with depression, anxiety and mental disorders concerning all their antidepressant and medication related issues. As Couples Therapist I come alongside couples with a modern and innovative hope-focused approach.
I offer online e-counselling (e-mail, chat & video) in addition to traditional face to face psychotherapy. I also consult with other mental health and medical practitioners concerning their client's/patient's medication related counselling issues.
