My Story and Approach
Hello! I’m Christine Cimolai (she/her), R. Psych.. Over the past 20 years I have had the privilege of working with children who have exceptional needs and their families. No two steps are the same, and the unique circumstances of each child, adolescent, and parent needs to be honoured. Anxiety, depression, grief, stress, trauma, and the overall navigation through the milestones of life can catch anyone off guard. For example, a parent who has a child recently diagnosed with a disability, an adolescent experiencing a life changing event, or a child having difficulties regulating.
Trauma can be about impactful events that shake us but also the little things that add up over time. My aim is to support you in your ability to adapt to life and move forward. EMDR is a comprehensive treatment modality that includes components of cognitive behavioural, family, attachment, and psychodynamic therapy.
As an EMDR therapist, we will find strategies, set goals, and resource your strengths. My professional perspective incorporates best practice alongside humour, compassion, and kindness. I combine walking with psychotherapy in south east Calgary for those who need to move and feel more at ease under big skies. I'm also at both office locations in Airdrie and Calgary.
