Therapy For Depression & Anxiety

Society used to look at mental health issues as something to be ashamed of, but not any more. Mental health, like physical health, is something that absolutely everyone must work at to feel good. It’s rewarding work, but it isn’t always easy.

Heart-breaking events or even just daily struggles can sometimes lead to depression, anxiety, or a sense that we do not belong. The resources we need to stay balanced, to grow, and to feel whole are within each of us, but sometimes we have trouble finding them on our own. That’s why help is available.

At Welling Centre, our goal is to build a trusting, safe, relationship with you, where our therapists can understand your situation from your perspective, and help you to discover the hidden resources that would allow you to find your source of wellness once again.

Meet our therapists currently specializing in depression and anxiety therapy.

Katherine Dunford

Provisional Psychologist

Katherine is a provisional psychologist with a Master of Counselling degree from the University of Lethbridge. She is trained in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Eye Movement and Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

Her goal is to provide help and support to those who want to break the cycle of pain and suffering, recover from adverse experiences, and live satisfying lives of wellness and joy. She uses a spiritual and holistic approach to assess and optimize all areas of an individual’s life, and this can include incorporating yoga and mindfulness meditation into her practice.

Her work is influenced by the Jungian, Rogerian, systems, and attachment theoretical orientations. Fully bilingual, she provides services in either French or English.

Born in Germany, as a child of military parents, her family was often on the move. She was forced to learn to use discipline, focus, and control as her upbringing had little physical stability. Because of her childhood, she became interested in working with those experiencing unexpected and extreme stress. She also became interested in understanding the influence stress can have on future generations. Prior to psychology, she studied photojournalism, with the purpose of capturing stories of post-traumatic growth and the power of human connection.

Each professionally supervised 50-minute session with Katherine is available for a $200 fee and is eligible for extended health benefits through some insurance companies – call for details. She is currently offering video, phone and in-person sessions.
