Professional Psychology services and Counselling in Okotoks

​A message from Jennifer Rioux, MC, R. Psych:

​If you are on this site you have already begun the challenging journey for something to be different in your life, needing support to cope with life challenges or perhaps improve the relationships that are most important to you. Your own life experiences, mental health and physical health can also present obstacles to gaining what you desire from LIFE. It is my journey with you that we will develop our goal and begin to remove those obstacles that are in your way to create the change you need OR develop strategies for obstacles that are unchangeable.


​I utilize many different modalities of therapy including *Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, * Brief Solution Focused Therapy, *Narrative Therapy, *Dialectical Behavioural Skill Development, and * Prolonged Exposure Therapy for coping with PTSD. 


​While working with couples I draw upon different approaches. My work is largely focused on the Gottman Strategies. I am trained in Level 1 and 2 of the Gottman method, I have specialized training at the Univeristy of Berkley with John and Julie Gottman  for helping couples heal from affairs and trauma. I am also a Gottman Leader for the 7 principles of making a marriage work clinics.


​Please feel free to contact me and collaboratively we will individualize your therapy plan based on yours and-or your family needs.
