Psychology in Spruce Grove

Stacked stonesChantal Jackson and Kate Schneider are both Registered Psychologists and Certified Hakomi Therapists. They are committed to providing you with quality care. As such, they are continuously improving their skills by attending workshops and professional training. As of August 2020, we welcomed Alycia Emes. Alycia is a registered Mental Health Therapist who holds a Masters of Arts in Counseling from the City University of Seattle. She is currently pursuing her licensure with the College of Alberta Psychologists as a Registered Provisional Psychologist. 

Care, Compassion and Connection

From a place of compassion our Registered Psychologists offer individual, couples and family therapy, as well as Hakomi Therapy and Psychoeducational Assessments.

The Hakomi Method

“Therapy is first about discovering. It’s about who you are and about what your deepest emotional attitudes are. It’s not just about who you think you are. It’s not opinion. It’s not something you can know with the intellect. It’s about who you are in the very heart of yourself. That’s the flavor of psychotherapy, discovering yourself, discovering your real attitudes toward the most important pieces of your life.” —Ron Kurtz, Hakomi Founder

Psychoeducational Assessments

If your child is struggling with learning or behaviour at school, educational and psychological testing can help identify cognitive, academic and behavioural factors that may be impeding their long-term success. Both Chantal Jackson and Alycia Emes offer these assessments.

Psychoeducational assessments evaluate verbal skills, visual skills, reasoning skills, memory, processing skills, learning and behaviour. A straightforward report will outline strengths and weaknesses and will provide recommendations for behavioural, academic and cognitive interventions at school and at home, leaving you empowered to make timely changes in your child’s home and school environments.

What does an assessment entail?

  • a one-hour clinical interview with parents to gain a thorough understanding of developmental information and current difficulties
  • 4 to 7 hours in clinic with your child, conducting standardized testing and completing appropriate questionnaires
  • a 1.5 – 2 hour meeting with parents and relevant support persons to review findings and discuss recommendations

Chantal is completely bilingual and able to conduct parts of, or whole assessments in French: perfect for French-immersion and francophone students.
