The first and most important step towards bettering your mental health is visiting a registered therapist in Edmonton. Then, you must go to a therapist that understands your concerns. The two key considerations that will help you make the right decision are - experience and specialization. Turn to a mental health professional who has years of experience. Our team has been practicing for several years, providing the right tools to people to help them overcome their problem and traumas and other mental health issues for people of all ages.
Secondly, make sure the therapist you go to has the required certification. Both Dr. Meiers and Dr. Hammond-Meiers have the required registration and certification to help people overcome issues such as the effects of physical abuse or being raised by an alcoholic parent. For instance, Dr. Hammond-Meiers is a Registered Canadian Art Therapist. Dr. Meiers has completed levels I and II of EMDR training from the EMDR Institute and counselling since 1970. Both registered psychologists have diverse skills and specializations to craft the right approach for several issues.
Alberta Health Care doesn't take care of the counselling fees you receive at a therapist's office. However, your health insurance plan might partially cover the cost of therapy. If that is the case, we can offer direct billing, depending on the insurance company. It would be best to speak directly to your health insurance provider to get a better idea of your coverage.
Our work has been focused on individuals, adults, teens or children who have experienced one or more critical events or traumas in their lives that are now impacting their day-to-day lives. This includes adults whose early childhood trauma is directly affecting on their close friendships or intimate relationships.
