About Jennifer Bartlett
I am a registered psychologist who enjoys working with adults and older adolescents grappling with a variety of challenges. My training and education has taken me across Canada from the East coast (B.Sc. in Neuroscience (Honours) from Dalhousie University and M.Ed. in Counselling from the University of New Brunswick) to the prairies (Ph.D. in Counselling Psychology from the University of Alberta).
I have experience working with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, perfectionism, emotion dysregulation, self-harm, trauma, borderline personality disorder, cancer and cancer-related concerns. I specialize in working with eating disorders and body image issues and I have formal training in Emotion-Focused Therapy which I use to treat numerous clinical concerns. The role of emotions greatly informs my work. I value the wealth of knowledge that emotions can offer us, and in using this approach I promote change by helping my clients explore, understand, regulate, and transform their emotions. In addition to these specialties, I have experience and training in a number of other therapeutic approaches including Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I am also trained in conducting formal psychoeducational assessments for both children and adults for concerns regarding learning disorders, ADHD, and overall cognitive functioning.
I strive to foster a warm, supportive, and genuine relationship with all my clients, and am committed to working collaboratively with you to meet your goals. In order to do this, I draw on and integrate a variety of therapeutic approaches to best meet my client’s needs based on their personal experiences, beliefs and worldview.
