Kristin Matthews, Owner

R.Psych, M.C.

As a Registered Psychologist and the proud owner of KM Counselling, I am passionate about helping adults and teens who are ready to experience meaningful change.

Background

I started KM Counselling because of my love of working directly with clients who are ready to experience meaningful change.

I have built my practice coming from years of experience in a variety of settings including private practice, community single-session counselling, and addiction and health prevention management. I have also designed and delivered counselling programs for workplaces across Alberta and the Northwest Territories.

My approach to counselling involves working with my client’s many strengths while using evidence-based practices. I believe that counselling should feel authentic, safe, and collaborative.

When I am not counselling, I value outdoor adventures with my family including biking, paddle boarding, camping, skiing, and travel.

Specialties and Issues

I have experience working with clients to address many unique concerns. I specialize in helping adults and teens with the following issues:

  • Registered Psychologist (R.Psych), College of Alberta Psychologists
  • Master of Counselling Psychology (M.C.), Athabasca University
  • Bachelor of Arts, Psychology (B.A.), University of Calgary

Professional Development

Ongoing consultation and professional development is a critical part of my counselling practice. Some of my advanced training includes: prolonged exposure therapy for PTSD, feedback informed treatment, acceptance and commitment therapy, addiction and tobacco cessation training, and sexuality in counselling to name a few.
