Our Clinical Team

Nathan Foerger
Nathan Foerger

I have over 5 years of experience working with kids, teens, adults, and groups. I thoroughly enjoy working with different populations as it informs my approach. I am constantly learning from my clients’ honesty, bravery, and hope, and am passionate about co-creating strategies for how to make life a little bit better. I am interested in what you are hoping to work on or get from therapy and how we can find ways to practice, experiment, and evaluate how to meet your needs. I use a number of different approaches that aim to understand what you are already doing that are helpful. Together we can build tools to support your individual needs.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Alberta and a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Trinity Western University. I am a registered provisional psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists.

I am passionate about finding the right approach or the right support; so, in the case that the best fit is not with me, I am happy to refer you to a broader community of supportive professionals that could meet your needs.

Sometimes, one of the biggest hurdles in overcoming our troubles is thinking we’re all alone.

Asking for help is no longer considered a weakness. In fact, it’s one of the most influential, life-
altering decisions we can make. Because when we talk about our feelings, they become less

overwhelming, less upsetting, and less worrisome.
My name is Kevin. And there are two things I know for sure;
1) Counselling really can help; and
2) No one should have to face their problem’s alone.
If you’re open to it, let’s talk. Better days are near!

Catherine Forth
Catherine Forth
I am a Registered Provisional Psychologist working in the Edmonton area. Deciding to go to therapy can be a difficult step, so it is important to me that I provide a safe, welcoming, and non-judgmental space for you to explore whatever brings you to counselling. As a strength-based counsellor my goal is to empower and support you in finding solutions to, or new ways of looking at, your concerns. In a therapy session with me, I will work with you to discover what skills and resources you bring to the table and support you in figuring out how to use them to live a happier and healthier life. People are not “one size fits all” so I use a variety of therapies to help my clients achieve their goals, including Solution Focussed Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). My interests lie in working with adults with a range of concerns including, depression, anxiety, grief, self-esteem, trauma, sexual violence, life transitions, relationships, ecogrief, and infertility.

Kimberly Giddings

Kimberly Masliuk-Giddings, MSW.RSW.BA, is a Registered Social Worker who is a member in good standing with the Alberta College of Social Workers (ACSW). I have obtained my Masters in Clinical Social Work. Previously I completed a Bachelor of Arts Degree (major in Psychology). I am also the author of an academic publication featured in the Journal of Psychological Injury and Law, which explores the facets of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and malingering. I have been employed in the field of mental health for over 12 years; during my career I have been involved in the development and delivery of various programs, services and clinical treatment and therapy for individuals presenting with a variety of mental health concerns. I am
currently employed as a mental health therapist in a trauma clinic; I provide individual and group therapy to children, adolescents, and their families who are impacted by complex PTSD and Developmental Trauma Disorder (DTD). I have developed and implemented curriculums for several group therapy sessions covering a variety of topics such as emotion regulation, attachment disorders, anxiety and depression. As a Registered Social Worker, I value the person-in-environment perspective to treatment; this allows the ability to assess and provide treatment to individuals through a systemic, trauma-informed, client-centered approach. Through individual and group therapy, individuals are able to gain insight as to how and why certain behaviours are developed and maintained by the influences within and around them through various contexts. I believe that every person possesses the ability to safely and successfully overcome one’s obstacles and challenges that are causing crisis or distress in their life. As a therapist, I endeavour to create an atmosphere that encourages self-discovery of skills, talents, and abilities in an environment that is safe, genuine and non-judgemental.
