About Kirsten White

Hi! I’m Kirsten White, A Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists. I am able to work with patients in-person and virtually in Alberta, and offer telehealth psychology appointments to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick residents as well.

My approach to therapy is client-centred and holistic. I use my knowledge of neurobiology and attachment to help my clients overcome phobias, learn valuable stress management skills, and overall empower clients to have a strong awareness of their own mind and body. I meet my clients where they are at and together strengthen awareness of old patterns that no longer serve us and create new ones. Ideally we work towards creating a healthy balance with our body, mind, and environment.

I have specialized training in therapies such as; EMDR, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Motivational Interviewing, Art Therapy and I utilize mindfulness based therapies, CBT, and behavioural therapies. I also work closely with many of Ignite Nutrition's patients who have IBS and other digestive disorders.
