Leigh's Counselling Services
I am an Indigenous Registered Psychologist and operate two practices, one in Slave Lake and another in Edmonton. I Co-founded Aboriginal Psychological Services in 2017 and founded Leigh’s Counselling Services 2018. I have been practicing as a Registered Psychologist for over three years and provisional psychologist since 2013.
I specialize in Indigenous Psychological Services. My research as a Masters student at City University of Seattle focused on providing counselling services to Indigenous Peoples. My supervision included best practices for counselling Indigenous peoples, as well as trauma and addictions with high risk youth. My practice has allowed me to work with array of clients. I have experience in culturally diverse populations and clients with clinical disorders. Furthermore, experience with grief and loss, trans-generational trauma, identity and sexuality, substance abuse and dependence and multiple forms of abuse. Even though I specialize in Indigenous Psychology, it has given me the tools to counsel non-Indigenous groups as well as other culturally diverse populations. Currently, enrolled in Somatic Attachment Second Year, Completed Somatic Experiencing Training Beginner Level. My experience has allowed me to offer consultation, staff training, clinical supervision and student internships.
