We are a group practice of individual practitioners who are all Registered Psychologists with the College of Alberta Psychologists. The name of our practice was inspired by the book The Red Tree by Shaun Tan. It is a wonderful illustrated book incorporating the presence of hope in some of life’s darkest moments. The book acknowledges the depth of difficult emotions and ends in a way that pulls the reader back to the beginning to look for the presence of a red leaf on each page. Take a look for a copy of this book in our waiting room.
Our office is meant to feel as much like home as possible. We want you to feel welcome and comfortable here. Our waiting room is meant to feel like a living room, where you have the space to relax and gather your thoughts before seeing your therapist. We do not have a receptionist, and many clients say that they prefer the ability to walk in to our space quietly and privately without needing to say anything to anyone. At the time of your appointment, your therapist will be out to greet you in the waiting room and welcome you to a therapy room. While you wait, please help yourself to coffee or tea, browse through our community resources, take a peek at our reading rack or choose to be creative by colouring a page from a mindful colouring book.
Red Tree Psychology was founded by seven partners who are all psychologists sharing the values of collaboration and life-long learning. Our practice offers many services to clients and the community, including a beautiful group room for providing group therapy, a well-stocked play room for play therapy and on-going opportunities for case-consultation. These features of our practice help to ensure that we are constantly learning and collaborating to provide the best care for our clients. We are proud to say that we are home to many highly-trained, committed and caring psychologists. Our philosophy is that relationships are the foundation of therapy, and we do everything we can to make sure that you feel at home from the moment you visit our office to the day you say good-bye.
