Rupinder Hehar, MC, R. Psych
PRIVATE PSYCHOLOGY CLINIC
I am a Registered Psychologist who undertakes a collaborative and non-pathological approach to counsel in creating a nurturing and empathetic environment to counselling.
I have experience in conducting psychological assessment, counselling individuals and families in the realm of domestic violence, family violence, inter-generational family conflict, attachment, parenting, multi-generational trauma, addiction, and long-term mental health concerns.
I serve to create a warm, professional and therapeutic environment in which we can work together to discover and develop solutions.
I am a member of the College of Alberta Psychologists, Psychologists Association of Alberta, Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society, and American Society of Reproductive Medicine.
My approach to counselling is strength-based, cognitive, and narrative. As a therapist, I believe in adopting a collaborative and non-pathological approach to counselling, which centers individuals as the experts of their lives. I value considering the broader context of people’s lives particularly in the various dimensions of diversity including class, race, gender, sexual orientation, and ability. I believe each individual has many skills, abilities, values, commitments, beliefs, and competencies that assist them in changing their relationship with the problems influencing their lives. In therapy, this means to co-discover through conversations, the hopeful, preferred, and previously unrecognized and hidden possibilities contained within themselves. I am passionate about counselling individuals, couples, and families in empowering them to create lives that are contributing and fulfilling.
I enjoy working with individuals of all ages, children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. I can provide counselling in English, Punjabi, Hindi, and Urdu.
