Michelle Fox, M.A.

REGISTERED PSYCHOLOGIST

Biography

Michelle believes that everyone has the innate ability for growth and change.  She works collaboratively with clients to tailor therapy to their individual needs.  Michelle combines warmth and humour with her extensive experience to create a supportive environment so that clients can achieve their personal goals. Her main therapeutic approaches include CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) to help clients recognise unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaviour, develop skills to cope more effectively, and ultimately become their own therapist.  Michelle also has training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), an effective and powerful treatment for trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and a range of other mental health problems.

Prior to becoming a psychologist, Michelle was a Registered Psychiatric Nurse and has over 20 years of experience in mental health. She has worked in a range of different treatment settings including addiction services, community mental health teams, and alongside family physicians.  Michelle’s main areas of expertise include anxiety disorders, such as panic, social anxiety, generalised anxiety, and health anxiety; depression; adjustment difficulties; sleep; and self-esteem issues.  She specialises in OCD, trauma, and in helping adults with ADHD to recognise the impact it can have, not only on day-to-day functioning, but also on mood, self-esteem, and relationships.

Michelle is a Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists and a member of the Psychologists’ Association of Alberta. She completed her Masters in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University, obtained a BSc (Hons) Specialist Practitioner in Community Mental Health from Liverpool John Moores University, England, and holds postgraduate qualifications in Psychological Studies and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.
