Maureen Gording MSW, RSW 

Are you curious if your life could look or feel differently?  Are you finding yourself faced with difficult emotions, tough decisions or fear of the future?  Are you having difficulty sleeping?  Nightmares? Maybe sleeping too much?  I’m so glad you stopped by and hope I can be of help to you.  

I am Maureen (she/her) and I have been working as a counsellor for more than 20 years.  In that time I have worked in the areas of mental health, grief, trauma, crisis and family violence.  I am passionate about helping people to live their most authentic lives and strive towards anti-oppressive practice.

Perhaps you are struggling with depression or anxiety, you’re feeling overwhelmed with caregiving or day to day life, are experiencing insomnia, grief or symptoms related to trauma.  These are just a few of the things I can help with.  

I use a variety of tools in my work, including Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), CBT, and mindfulness.


In short, ART uses eye movements and image replacement.  Most often the result is that stressful events no longer trigger emotional and physical responses.  Anything from car accidents to abuse to an argument with a loved one can be addressed using ART.  Ask me if ART might be a good fit for you.

If you’re curious or unsure whether counselling might be helpful for you please contact the clinic to set up a free 15 minute phone consultation 403-973-3794 or email  If your concerns are outside my abilities I would be happy to refer you to someone who can help.

In-person and virtual appointments available.
