Hello, my name is Caitlin Slavens, I am a Registered Psychologist with the college of Alberta Psychologists and I am excited to be collaborating with individuals and families at Family Ties Association in helping people meet their needs. 

My areas of practice include working with adults, adolescents, and children in the areas of trauma, grief and loss, relational trauma, anxiety, depression, and interpersonal difficulties. I am trained in EMDR as well as integrating EMDR with children and adolescents.  I have training from Rocky Mountain Play Therapy Centre in Play-Based Treatment of Trauma. 

In my practice I use a variety of therapeutic approaches, such as EMDR, directive and non-directive Play Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused, Somatic/body-centered approaches, and Expressive Arts Therapy.
