If you are looking to engage the services of a master’s level intern, Julie Clarke Therapy has a team of interns ready to serve you, learn more about the team below.
Elizabeth is a practicum student, completing her Master of Counselling through the University of Calgary. She likes to compare the path we take through life to going on a hike in the wilderness: we start with what we think we might need on the trail, but sometimes it’s harder than anticipated, rain starts unexpectedly, or we get lost. The same happens on our life-path, and it’s important sometimes to stop, take a break, and reflect on “How am I feeling? Do I have the right tools to handle this by myself?”.
Using an integrated and collaborative approach, she works with clients to identify their needs, determine therapeutic goals, and build on their existing strengths to help them overcome life’s challenges. She draws on various theories such as Emotion Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Positive Psychology.
Elizabeth received her undergrad degree in Mathematics and Psychology, from the Royal Military College of Canada. She currently still serves in the Canadian Armed Forces in the communications branch. Her experiences have shown her how hard it can be to acknowledge when we need help, and that it’s often even harder to ask for it. She strives to create a safe and supportive environment, free of judgements or bias, where clients can engage in self-reflection and receive the support they need.
Elizabeth is booking now for September 2022 availability. Fee is $100.00 per session. To schedule an appointment with Elizabeth or request information, please email Jacky at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Lynn Izzard is a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (www.crpo.ca), she is considerate, attentive, warm, and empathetic. She has a special interest in working with individuals (16+).
Lynn’s style is solution-focused, building upon your strengths so you may step outside the symptoms of your life’s challenges and towards recovering and restoring your overall well-being. Lynn seeks to cultivate hope, choice, and resilience so that you may feel and know wellness.
Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are just a few of the symptoms that can linger after stress and tragic events. Lynn wants to help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
As Gabor Maté reminds us,
“Trauma is not what happens to you. Trauma is what happens inside you”.
In distinguishing the event(s) from the person, we may begin the walk toward self-healing and self-love. In accepting that ‘we’ are not our circumstance, we rise and become better able to secure a sense of connection with our loved ones; the foundation of traumatic growth.
Lynn intends to provide a neutral safe space; listening to your concerns, and customizing a treatment plan for both immediate and long-term support.
She is currently completing her Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University plus she has additional training in Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD, Suicide Prevention, Cultural Competency, and Behavioural Psychology.
Lynn will be accepting new clients for appointments starting in January 2023. If you wish to book with Lynn please contact Admin at firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your spot.
Session fee’s are $100.00 per session.
