Dr. Rochelle Major

Edmonton Counselling PsychologistI am doctoral level Registered Psychologist with over 10 years of extensive training and experience in psychotherapy and research. I work with a wide range of issues faced by individuals, couples, and families, tailoring my work to meet their unique needs and drawing on their strength and resilience to facilitate change. I believe strongly in every person’s natural ability to heal and grow from painful experiences and feelings. My job is to be a genuine and compassionate guide in this process to help clients move beyond feeling “stuck” and towards a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

My expertise is in the “existential issues” people face (meaning, purpose, isolation, death) as well as grief, depression, anxiety, aging, retirement, career transitions, dementia/care-giving, PTSD, OCD, sexual abuse, couple/family issues, body image issues, cross-cultural issues and interfaith relationships.

It’s important to find a psychologist who feels genuine, kind, supportive, nonjudgmental – someone with whom you can feel comfortable and relaxed – even laugh with – someone “down to earth.” My clients consistently describe me this way. I believe a meaningful therapeutic relationship strongly contributes to profound, long-lasting personal change.
