Registered Provisional Psychologist

For the past 6 years April has devoted her work to better understanding and supporting success in people’s careers. She is passionate about helping her clients find clarity in their career direction so that they can pursue a path forward that is both personally and professionally fulfilling. She is passionate about working with people through career transitions, such as supporting young job seekers in the move from school-to-work, helping mid- or late-career professionals identify alternative and more suitable career paths, or better aligning people’s current career path with their own professional goals. With a background in mental health, April also works with clients to overcome the psychological challenges that often accompany career change and transition, including stress, anxiety, and depression.

April’s practical and collaborative approach to counselling empowers clients to make decisions that directly align with their career aspirations. Her extensive research background in the field of career development gives her cutting-edge knowledge and insight into how to best approach the process of career decision-making. April is a Registered Provisional Psychologist and a member of the Psychologists’ Association of Alberta. She holds a Master of Science degree in Counselling Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts Honours degree in Psychology from the University of Calgary.
