Angie is a Registered Psychologist with the Saskatchewan College of Psychologists (SKCP). She is also a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA).

Angie has been working at the University of Saskatchewan with the Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP) since 2015. Prior to working on campus, Angie provided counselling in the Prairie Spirit School Division and then worked as an EFAP counsellor with Homewood Human Solutions and Family Service Saskatoon. Her greatest learning and education has come from the relationships she has been privileged to form with her clients over the course of more than 15 years of work with diverse populations in the human services field. This training and experience has provided her with a strong foundation to be able to provide psychological services to individuals in areas such as:

  • grief and loss
  • anxiety, depression, and stress management
  • anger management
  • self-esteem and self-worth
  • spirituality
  • life balance and transitions
  • trauma, specifically sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse
  • LGBTQ, gender and sexual identity
  • healthy relationships
  • family violence
  • infidelity
  • separation and divorce
  • self-harm and suicide intervention

Angie believes that people are the experts of their own lives and that the human connection is essential to the therapeutic process. Therefore, her approach to counselling is to combine a relational, client-centered counselling style with evidence-based therapeutic techniques. Guiding her work are a variety of theories and modalities, including solution-focused, cognitive-behavioural, feminist, narrative, and strength-based. Angie strives to provide an environment of safety and comfort where clients feel supported and empowered to reach their goals.

Angie earned her Master of Education in Educational Psychology and Special Education from the University of Saskatchewan with a focus on School and Counselling Psychology.

Tim feels very strongly about the importance of the therapeutic relationship in counselling. This connection allows individuals to share openly and take the necessary risks to make positive changes. Ongoing feedback about the relationship between counsellor and client is essential to ensure clients feel understood and that they are reaching their goals.

Tim uses a variety of models including cognitive behavioural, solutions-focused, and narrative therapy. Areas of focus include:

  • grief and loss
