So glad to have you here. I'm Katie Poirier (she/her/hers), a Registered Psychologist working in Edmonton, Alberta. I graduated from the University of Alberta with my Masters of Education in Counselling Psychology in 2014. In this role, I believe my priority is to hold what is well in my clients and help them find what they want to flourish. For over a decade, I have worked effectively with people experiencing trauma-related effects and addictions, including eating disorders. I value working with both individuals struggling with trauma/eating disorders and their supporters such as parents, partners, and friends. I believe in helping clients grow and flourish through a client-centered framework that emphasizes equality and empowerment. I bring compassion and humour to therapy, and strive to create a safe place for all to be heard.
My particular passions and areas of specialty are in the realm of eating
disorders, body shame, & sexual trauma. It is of paramount importance to me that a social justice & intersectional lens is brought to this work.
I started my career as a psychologist at the Sexual 
Assault Centre of Edmonton, and have been running support groups with the Eating Disorder Support Network of Edmonton (EDSNA) since 2016. I also worked at Pine Integrated Health Centre, a perinatal-focused clinic, for several years. 


The therapeutic modalities that inform my practice include Emotion Focused Family Therapy (EFFT), Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART, a trauma-based therapy).

Other tidbits about me: I am a twin mom of three kiddos, and I was born and raised in New Brunswick! 

Reaching out for support is an incredibly vulnerable & brave thing to do. This part of you is committing a tremendous act of self-compassion. Trust it to guide you in your journey and move you forward.

“When we liberate ourselves from the expectation that we must have all things figured out, we enter a sanctuary of empathy.”
