Heather Armstrong

Registered Provisional Psychologist

“Hi! I’m a Registered Provisional Psychologist and I use mainly a cognitive-behavioural approach, meaning that I explore how beliefs, thoughts, emotions, and reactions impact your perspective and daily life. I can tell you as someone with a history of perfectionism and control issues that it’s okay to seek help and support to learn how to adopt a different perspective and accept all parts of yourself.”

Education

Bachelor of Science in Psychology (Honors), Brandon University

Master of Arts in Counselling, McGill University

 

Philosophy

I believe that we all have unique strengths, perspectives, and drives to live the best life that we can, and that we can hinder ourselves as our harshest judge, jury, and executioner. I can tell you as someone with a history of perfectionism and control issues that it’s okay to seek help and support to learn how to adopt a different perspective and accept all parts of yourself.

 

Approach

When we work together, you can expect me to be personable, non-judgmental, and direct. I don’t hold myself back in the therapy room and at times, I will be challenging you (I welcome being challenged myself!). I like using silly metaphors and pop culture references in sessions. I use mainly a cognitive-behavioural approach, meaning that I explore how beliefs, thoughts, emotions, and reactions impact your perspective and daily life. I believe that we can create long-lasting desired changes by understanding and challenging our perspectives. Professionally, I have experience as a support for those struggling with withdrawal, disordered eating and working with Mohawk Indigenous and LGBTIQA* and sex-positive communities across Manitoba and Quebec. 

 

A Bit About Me

I was once voted “Best Grazer” because I’m a big foodie and love snacking and baking.  You can find me at board game cafes and curled up comfy on my couch enjoying video games, anime, and reading thrillers and true crime.
