SYLVIA CHAN​​​
MA, Registered Provisional Psychologist

The human experience is full of peaks and valleys, and I’d be honoured to accompany you in and through them. Knowing the intention and courage it can take to see a therapist, my goal is to hold a safe space to help you learn new skills, process your emotions, make meaning from your experiences, and bear witness to stories of your resilience and strength. 

My clients share that I am an easy-to-talk-to, warm-hearted, and thought-provoking therapist. I draw primarily from narrative therapy, cognitive-behavioural therapy, and attachment theory in my practice. What this means is that I can support you with practical strategies to find relief in your day-to-day, but I am also invested in exploring deeper with you so that we can create sustainable change. Together, we can be curious about the stories and relationships that have shaped you, so that you can understand the “why” and discover a more authentic way of being and relating to others. 

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from McGill University and a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Providence Theological Seminary. Before becoming a Psychologist, I practiced as a Registered Nurse who specialized in psychiatry. With over 8 years of clinical experience as a mental health professional, I am grateful to have journeyed with many individuals and families at Alberta Health Services, Calgary Counselling Centre, Calgary Catholic Immigration Society, and Lifemark. 

My clinical specialties and areas of interest include: 

  • Anxiety (social anxiety, generalized anxiety, panic attacks, driving anxiety, specific phobias)
  • Depression
  • Trauma (relational, family-of-origin, motor vehicle accidents) 
  • Boundaries and people-pleasing 
  • Workplace and academic stress 
  • Grief and loss
  • Spirituality 
  • Chronic pain
