A Greeting from Oana (she/her)
Registered Provisional Psychologist.
Oana offers virtual sessions, for all Alberta residents.
Hello, I’m Oana,
As a Registered Provisional Psychologist, I love helping people live authentically. With support, understanding and gentle care, we can create meaning in our lives, achieve powerful transformation and begin a journey of self-discovery. Often when there is great pain and suffering, it can be the catalyst for change in one’s life. I am passionate about supporting people on this path to fulfillment and wholeness.
I have earned my Master of Counselling Psychology and Bachelor of Psychology degree. Throughout almost two decades of working with children, families and adults in a variety of community settings, it became clear that relationships and attachment are at the core of well-being. I provide attachment-based therapy and I am trauma informed. I believe the presence of safe and nurturing relationships are key to healing.
I utilize person-centred, emotionally focused and psychodynamic approaches. I am also trained in Accelerated Resolution Therapy – an evidence-based treatment for psychological trauma and depression. I work with pre-teens and teens, adults and families.
The first step in reaching out to a therapist can be daunting. I am supportive of each and every stage of your healing journey and I am happy to go at your pace as we co-create a safe space and develop rapport.
As a person who aspires to practice as the 'Healed Healer', I take part in my own personal therapy and continue to be a student of self-development and emotional health and wellness. I am also a nature and animal lover and have a keen interest in most outdoor activities and adventures.
