Kathryn Ring – Clearwater Counselling

Registered Provisional Psychologist supporting Calgary, Okotoks and surrounding areas.

My personal and professional journey offers experience in addictions, relationships, bereavement, trauma, anxiety, depression, and other areas of mental health. I obtained a degree in Addictions Counselling in 2000 and have since worked closely with substance abuse and behavioural addictions. I later went on to receive a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology to advance my competencies in working with the complexities of couple and family relationships, and efficacy in working with other mental health concerns.
I incorporate practices of dialectical behavioural therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, and solution-focused practices with the intent of supporting individuals/couples/families in the development of wisdom and skill in managing challenges and adverse life circumstances.
My nonjudgmental approach and open-minded beliefs offer respect toward unique personal characteristics. From a philosophical posture, my belief is that the person is an expert in their own life. My role is that of a fellow traveler meant to walk alongside the client in their journey towards purpose, facilitating presence and mindfulness in the here and now.
