About McKenzie Snyder

Hi, I’m McKenzie a registered psychologist and doctoral candidate registered with the College of Alberta Psychologists specialized in the areas of Clinical, Counselling, Health, and Rehabilitation psychology. I offer individual counselling in-person and virtually to Alberta residents.

My approach to therapy incorporates a biopsychosocial approach focusing on the interconnection between the mind and body. I work with my clients in supporting them develop skills to manage stress, IBS, emotion dysregulation, and difficulty with life transitions. Working as a team, I work with my clients to develop a treatment approach that is geared toward their needs and to become more aware of the patterns that may be contributing to current difficulties.

I have received advanced clinical training to meet the highest levels of expertise in particular therapeutic modalities.
These include:

• Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
• Dialectical Behavioural Therapy
• Solution Focused Therapy
• I also integrate mindfulness and somatic-based practices in my work to reconnect the mind and body

Together, we will work on creating a holistic approach to maintaining a healthy mind-body connection. I look forward to working with you.
