Paige Dean

Registered Provisional Psychologist, Downtown Location

I have recently graduated from Yorkville University with a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology. I have recently become a Registered Provisional Psychologist. I am a member in good standing with the Canadian Psychological Association.

I have been a volunteer on a sexual assault crisis line for almost 5 years, and that, along with my own mental health journey, and witnessing the evolution of mental health awareness and prevalence in the world around me have inspired me to want to help others.

I am passionate about working with people to find a sense of self-worth, addressing depression, suicidality and self harm, anxiety, stress, and work/school/life balance, as well as improving interpersonal relationships through boundary setting, communication and coming to understand our emotions. I also work with survivors of sexual assault to understand the impact of their trauma and work to take their power back.

I believe that each person is the expert in their own lives! I practice in collaboration with my clients. I find it very important to build a strong, trusting, and safe relationship with each client so that you feel comfortable and confident to address your concerns, while I help provide you the tools, and keep you accountable.

I practice from an Integrationist perspective. I believe that many aspects of different therapeutic modalities are valuable to each individual. First and foremost, I practice from a Person-Centred model, where I believe that you have the drive and ability to make changes! I have also been trained in and will implement strategies from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, and others if applicable. Through developing our therapeutic alliance, together we’ll determine what is most appropriate and effective for you!

I believe in a very calm, friendly, conversational style of therapy. I use my sense of humour and I hope you do too!

Outside of work, I enjoy exploring the river valley with my dog/partner in crime Murphy, watching hockey, and taking in live music.

Ryan Turner, BA

Mental Health Therapist, Downtown Location

My name is Ryan and I am a Mental Health Specialist at ReDiscover Psychological Services. I recently completed my Masters of Counselling Degree course work, practicum, and internship at City University in Edmonton, in April of 2022. I also have an undergraduate degree in psychology from the University of Alberta and have been working in the mental health field for about 4 years. My professional background includes working in schools, working in private practice, and working in non-for-profit organizations.

I have experience working in both virtual and in person counselling settings with adolescents, adults, and couples, and I also have some experience working with children as well. I am particularly interested in working with depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders, as well as OCD, stress management, eating disorders, personality disorders, autism spectrum, and working with trauma and PTSD.

When I am not working I enjoy playing a variety of sports, including curling, golf, hockey, and baseball. I also really enjoy spending time with my partner and our dog and we try to travel as much as we can, as we love to explore and experience new places.

Tina Gal,

Registered Provisional Psychologist,  West End Location

My passion for counselling began when I received services from an amazing counsellor and my world changed forever. I strive to live up to this experience and support anxious, depressed, and stressed humans to move forward in their lives and relationships. We live in challenging times and many of us feel stressed, depressed, anxious, or disconnected...and given the various stressors of life, some people experience that their intimate relationship is no longer intimate. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, stress, depression, or relational concerns, I would love to support you find more connection and move forward in life.

In my own life, I have experienced how difficulty fuels change. Just like diamonds are forged under pressure, and if we have the support we need, we have the potential to grow and thrive. I love connecting with people in the intimate space that is therapy. I love to see others change and grow where they thought yesterday change was not possible.

I am a Registered Provisional Psychologist in the province of Alberta, and a member of the Alberta Clinical Hypnosis Society (ACHS). I have completed intermediate training in Clinical Hypnosis/Hypnotherapy and Advanced Training in Somatic Experiencing, a body-oriented trauma-informed modality.

I work holistically and enjoy sparking curiosity for the wisdom of your body in session. I am relational, so you won't sit in a session with me wondering what I am thinking: I am honest and direct, yet gentle. I use scientifically based somatic therapies, feminist, emotion-focused, and solution-focused modalities.

One of my passions is to support women (and individuals of all genders) experiencing difficulties with intimacy and sexuality-related challenges. I believe that open conversations about sexuality are important and create a safe space for them in therapy. I also believe that there is so much potential in intimate relationships and would love to support you in unlocking some of it.

When I am not in session, I am hopefully cross-country skiing or camping with my husband. I am an introvert as much as an extrovert and love a good balance between alone time and time with good friends!

Lori Thompson, MSW

Registered Social Worker,  West End Location

I am a social worker and have been working in the mental health field for more than 15 years. I started my social work career working with families experiencing homelessness and addiction. This work sparked an interest in the connection between traumatic events in early life and mental health problems in adulthood.

Whether you are having trouble in your relationship, struggling with anxiety, grief, or depression, I am hear to listen, provide a safe non-judgemental space and support you in making changes. I work with adults, couples, teens and families. I have a particular interest in working with complicated grief and with families struggling to parent children with challenging behaviour.

I believe that change takes place when people connect with their emotional experience. I focus on models of therapy that will help you better understand and regulate your emotions, reshape your interpersonal relationships and create meaningful connection in your life. I work to help you change the way you relate to unwanted thoughts and distressing feelings. It’s important for me to help you shift your focus away from “what’s wrong with me” and toward “what’s happened to me and how can I understand the impact”.

I completed my Masters degree in Social Work from Howard University in 2000. I have been licensed with the Alberta College of Social Workers since 2011. I’ve worked in non-profit, hospital based, intensive day hospital and community based public mental health and addictions programs. As well, I’ve held both healthcare manger and clinical supervisor roles in public mental health programs. I am working toward certification in Emotion Focused therapy.

When I am not working you will find me hanging out with my dog, creating art or walking in the woods.
