Registered Psychologist

Calgary, AB

Hello and welcome all! My name is Josie Furgeson and I am a Registered Psychologist. My practice is trauma-informed, neurodiverse affirming, attachment-led, and strengths-based and I work with children, adolescents, young adults, and parents. I specialize in and provide therapy for symptoms associated with ADHD, ASD with PDA profile, Anxiety, Depression, and conditions that frequently co-occur such as trauma, sensory processing difficulties, behaviour and emotion regulation challenges, self-harming behaviors, social struggles, and self-esteem issues. Interventions incorporated into my sessions are child/client-centered and tailored to the developmental age and needs of the individual. Through play therapy, art therapy, and talk therapy (relying on declarative language when necessary), we can process emotions together, learn strategies to cope with big feelings, engage in problem solving practices, and many other activities that will support the child/adolescents social and emotional functioning. I am exceedingly passionate about helping parents learn how to best support their child through a deeper understanding of the presenting challenge. This naturally leads to increased compassion and subsequent parent-child connection which is truly at the heart of healing. In addition to expressive therapies, my sessions are also guided by evidence-based modalities such as DBT, CBT, ACT, and mindfulness-based practices.

Specializing in ADHD, ASD, PDA, Anxiety, Depression, Sensory Processing, Self-Harm, Trauma, Self-Esteem, and Emotional Regulation.

I’m Nadine. I’m a Canadian Certified Counsellor and an ADHD Certified Clinical Services Provider who works with couples, teens, children and families. I have a Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy and I specialise in working with neurodiverse individuals and their loved ones. My personal experience growing up with undiagnosed ADHD has built a passion in me for helping neurodiverse individuals and those who care for them. My Therapeutic approach integrates several different models of therapy. The therapeutic model used with each session/client depends on the client’s goal and whether I am working with an individual, couple or family. The Therapeutic models that guide my approach include Family Systems Theory, Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Somatic Therapy. I offer a safe space focused on empathetic, collaborative, trauma-informed, therapy. I provide in person sessions to those in the Edmonton area, or online sessions to anywhere in Alberta.
