Janelle Schultz

I am a Registered Provisional Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists with a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. I have nearly two decades of experience working with families in the non-profit sector, and am here to help explore how attachment and family dynamics impact your current relationship with yourself, and with others. I use a humanistic, emotion-focused approach to work with you to navigate your challenges and to uncover self-compassion and empowerment that leads to meaningful healing and growth. I specialize in men’s mental health and issues related to depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, parenting challenges, divorce, and co-parenting. I work with individuals (age 13+), couples, and families of all backgrounds, cultures, religious affiliations, sexual orientations, and gender identities. As an important part of my own mental health and well-being, I spend as much time as I can outside and I love to run in beautiful places. I am also a proud parent to three teenagers and am even prouder of how often we laugh together, even if they also sometimes roll their eyes at me.

Savannah Beckman 

Hello! I am Savannah Beckman, a Registered Psychologist. I was drawn to the psychology field to the psychology field after my years of working with teenagers in a mentorship setting. Through this work, I realized how important it was to remind others of their worth and purpose. This is what drives my work today. You are important. You matter!

I view therapy as a team effort! Together, you and I will work to explore emotions, feelings, and situations. I work from a humanistic perspective, believing that you are the expert of your own experience and your own world. I use emotion focused therapy, emotion focused family therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy in my work.

I work with families, couples, children (age 3+), adolescents, and adults in many different areas of life. I am trained in Gottman methods, and am a Therapeutic Play Practitioner to work specifically with couples and children. I can work alongside eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and a variety of interpersonal concerns. I acknowledge that every one’s journey is unique, and hold space for every story that walks through my office doors.

Personally, I live with my amazing husband, and we love to be with people! You can find us camping, hiking, or spending time with our families.  I cannot wait to meet you!

It’s important to focus on “how” problems are produced (rather than just “why”). This means Dr. Emmerling helps her clients become more aware of multiple aspects of their experience (e.g., thoughts, emotions, nonverbal and verbal language), gaining greater awareness and understanding of who they are and also of their relationships. Dr. Emmerling helps her clients better access and identify their underlying needs and learn to communicate them more effectively to others.
