Hello there! My name is Lynda Burgess. I am a Registered Provisional Psychologist and have completed the 1600 hours of supervised practice required by the College of Alberta Psychologists. I have a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University and an undergraduate degree from the University of Regina in Psychology and Religious Studies. My career journey has taken me on many paths including working as a yoga instructor and labour doula, and it was through that work that I realized the most meaningful way I can serve others is through supporting their mental wellness and growth.
I believe in the resiliency of each person, and I support clients in recognizing and building that resiliency within them. I meet people where they are in their journey, and my approach to counselling often involves strength-based therapies including Solution-Focused Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. I also use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Mindfulness, Attachment-Informed approach, as well as other modalities. My counselling experience has also provided me with some unique ways to help clients, including co-facilitating groups for children and parents going through divorce.
Whatever your journey is, I would be honoured to walk with you.
