Inclusive, evidence-based therapy, and Trauma Sensitive Yoga
I'm Vanessa LaPrairie (she/they), a Registered Psychologist and Trauma Sensitive Yoga facilitator located in Calgary, AB. I absolutely love providing therapy for folks who may be faced with challenges such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, addiction, PTSD, and complex trauma. I regularly engage in my own therapeutic work as I believe we are never done learning, growing, and healing. I bring warmth and humour to the table, as well as an ongoing commitment to inclusivity and for LGBTQIA+ communities and social and racial justice.
Life is brutal. But it is also beautiful. Brutiful, I call it. Life's brutal and beautiful are woven together so tightly that they can't be separated. Reject the brutal, reject the beauty. So now I embrace both, and I live well, and hard, and real.
I love helping my clients develop the tools they need to cope with all of life’s challenges. Contact me today to learn more and book a session.
I live and work on Treaty 7 territory—the traditional and ancestral territory of the Blackfoot Confederacy: Kainai, Piikani and Siksika as well as the Tsuu T’ina Nation and Stoney Nakoda First Nation. I acknowledge that this territory is home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3 within the historical Northwest Métis Homeland. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations. I am grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. I make this acknowledgement as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.
