Holly Hollems

Registered Provisional Psychologist

Hi there! My name is Holly Hollems (she/her) and I am a Registered Provisional Psychologist offering individual, couples/relationship, and sex therapy. I work with clients on a variety of spectra, whether you’re 2SLGBTQIA+, kinky, poly, and/or neurodivergent. I want to be a safe place for you to heal and grow.


Masters of Counselling, City University

Bachelor of Arts, Double Major in Psychology and Women’s and Gender Studies, University of Alberta


My work as a therapist is sex-positive, trauma-informed and client-centered, drawing from the Feminist, Internal Family Systems, and Attachment models of therapy. When working with couples, relationships, and the infinite constellations of polyamory/consensual non-monogamy, I will often add Emotionally Focused Therapy.

Part of what drew me to the practice of therapy was how much I benefited from my own therapy. It was reaaallllyyy hard for me to find a therapist that I felt safe speaking to openly, especially about relationships and sexuality, so I decided to become that therapist!


I want my office to be a safe space for you, as you are. In a session with me, you can expect a lot of curiosity and humour. Therapy can often feel stiff and formal, so I welcome informal language (meaning: you can swear in session and talk about memes).

My approach is adaptable to what you need and what helps you, so I can be gentle or I can be challenging! Since I work with sexuality, I always respect that we are starting off as strangers and you may want to keep some things private. My job is to support you in your journey.

A Bit About me

I hold a Master’s degree in Counselling and a Bachelor in Psychology and Gender Studies. I live and work in Amiskwacîwâskahikan/Edmonton on Treaty 6 land. While I am working towards becoming a fully registered psychologist, I am also working towards becoming an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist. Outside of work, I am a Girl Guide Leader and have been camping literally since before I was born! I also collect a wide variety of hobbies and interests, like knitting, anime, tabletop games, and gardening.
