BC residents…please check out my personal website: www.sylviapeske.com
I am a Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists and a member of the Canadian Psychological Association. I completed my doctoral degree through the University of Alberta’s Counselling Psychology Program. I have offered therapeutic services to the community of Spruce Grove, Parkland County and surrounding areas since 2010, and because of the growing demand, I established a sacred journey psychological services inc. in 2014. I am grateful for my role as a Director of a counselling practice where additional qualified clinicians extend their services to our community.
I no longer reside in Spruce Grove, but I am happy to continue to offer therapy to the community through secure video conferencing. Video sessions work well in situations where travel or other circumstances make it physically difficult to attend in-person. I offer services from an integrative perspective which simply means that I pull from various therapy approaches to address clients’ individual therapeutic needs and desires.
Clients typically seek services when talking to others in their life no longer seems to help them work through challenges. Most of my clients talk about the usefulness of having a neutral and objective third-party professional they can talk to for expanding their perspective. A shift in perspective can make a huge difference in both how we feel about our situation and in how we take action or respond. This can occur quickly in a few sessions, or depending on the challenge and how long you have been dealing with it, you may desire more. Regardless, as a client, you set the pace and length of therapy.
Through my work helping others, I am most grateful for the ability to witness clients tap into their own sense of empowerment to work through life’s challenges and/or create new life changes for themselves. These may be big or small. I believe that we all want to feel empowered and that this is necessary for a satisfying and impassioned life. It happens one step at a time. You are worth taking the journey.
