Kathleen Golosky 

Indigenous Registered Psychologist

Edmonton Office

 I am Metis from Treaty 8 territory and MNA Region 1. I have worked within Indigenous communities and non-Indigenous communities for over 15 years. My foundation of practice is based on the beliefs that “It shouldn’t hurt to be a child”. This applies not only to the children and adolescents  I work with, it also is relevant for adults who have carried their early painful experiences into their adult lives that result in ways of coping which block happiness and health. I combine Western psychological practises with Indigenous practises for a more holistic approach to healing and growth. These practices include: Attachment therapy (psychodynamic), Person-centred therapy, Play therapy, Trauma and Neurosystems (NMT Model - Bruce Perry). Addictions treatment; Body-based therapies (critical for trauma); Motivational Interviewing, CBT, DBT, Solution-focused therapy; and Cultural training, through teachings by Indigenous knowledge keepers, elders, and ceremony.
