Oki. Hello. My name is Cora McDougall-Price. My Blackfoot name is Naatoa’tohkai.
I am a Registered Provisional Psychologist. My academic credentials include a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology (Honours) from Memorial University of Newfoundland in 2009 and Master of Education in Counselling Psychology from the University of Lethbridge in 2011.
Over the past 10 years, I have worked and volunteered in a variety of settings: therapeutic schools (Calgary and Lethbridge), non-for-profit and private counselling agencies. For several years, I was employed by the Lethbridge emergency women’s shelter, providing services to children, teenagers and families who were escaping violence and or/ poverty. I have worked extensively with clients who have experienced developmental trauma including issues related to abuse, family and sexual violence, addiction, parenting-in-crisis, child development and safety. I am especially passionate about Indigenous culture and integrating both traditional and non-traditional ways of healing.
Overall, my counselling approach can be described as strengths-based, person-centered and trauma-informed. My practice is also influenced by Attachment Theory and Bruce Perry’s Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics. I integrate strategies from therapies such as Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Play and Expressive Arts and EMDR to assist my clients in achieving growth and positive change.
In my spare time I am kept (very!) busy with my three young sons, husband and dog, Sadie. We love to sing, swim and spend time together in nature exploring and adventuring.
I will be offering appointments on Monday and Thursday evenings and Friday afternoons. The majority of my appointments will be for children/adolescents and limited appointments for adult clients.
