Mental Health Counselling Available!
Your Mental Health Matters!
Recognizing that a difficult job search can contribute to poor mental health and poor mental health can make job searching even more challenging, OSP has partnered with Momentum Counselling to offer free Mental Health Counselling to support OSP clients at OSP's office.
Therapist Victoria LaBerge will come in weekly to provide individual mental health counselling sessions, geared to support you to improved mental health. If you are a client of OSP and would like to make an appointment, talk to your career advisor today!
Victoria La Berge
Counsellor, CCC, MACP, BA
I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor (C.C.C.) in Alberta. I completed my undergraduate degree at Grant MacEwan University, where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) with a major in English, and a double minor in Psychology and Creative Writing. I have also completed a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology (M.A.C.P.) through Yorkville University. I am originally from British Columbia, but have lived in Edmonton for five years with my husband and our Great Dane, Ozzy.
I have a passion for mental health and hope to reduce barriers and stigmas for individuals seeking professional support. I offer evidence-based, therapeutic practices that aim to lessen suffering and increase positive health and well-being. Some of these methods include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Client-Centered therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Trauma-Informed approaches. I am also passionate about supporting Veterans and First Responders. As part of a military family (spouse, sibling), I have an in-depth understanding of the specific culture, mentality, workplace-expectations, and higher probability of risks, illnesses, and disorders associated with these industries. My services cover a varying range of topics, from depression and anxiety, grief and loss, to work/relationship stress and self-esteem. I offer individual and couples counselling, and am hoping to offer group counselling in the new year at OSP.
This initiative is a collaboration between OSP and Momentum Counselling. Momentum Counselling is a non-profit, charitable organization with a mandate to provide mental health counselling and supports to individuals who may not have access due to long waiting lists or financial barriers.
