Angela Grier, M.Ed, Registered Provisional Psychologist
Angela has over two decades of supporting all ages along a wide spectrum of mental health issues. Her trauma-informed approach uses traditional talk and cognitive behavioral therapies alongside a strength-based and human-centered approach to support clients from feeling isolated to taking control of their lives and emotions.
Angela is a registered provisional psychologist in the final stages of her registration process with the College of Alberta Psychologists. She’s completed all formal training as a psychologist and is preparing for the final exam. Prior to this registration process, Angela worked as a Canadian Certified Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.
Treatment of depression, anxiety, phobias, grief and loss, relationship challenges, trauma, including complex and intergenerational trauma, suicidal ideation, transitioning into adulthood, children and youth in care, and eco-anxiety are a few examples of her specialized areas. From a lived experience, she supports marginalized communities (BIPOC, LGBQTS+ and social justice).
Angela’s advocacy experience affords a unique perspective that supports students, faculty and organizations to address complex competency gaps with Indigenous communities, peoples and contexts. An example of this work includes enhancing counsellor education for practitioners wanting to work ethically and safely with Indigenous populations.
