Isoken Ogumbor

Registered Psychologist

“In therapy, I operate from a trauma-informed and person-centered approach. I aim to listen non-judgmentally and with care. Most importantly, I believe that people are resilient. I strive to offer culturally sensitive treatment, where I acknowledge and encourage people to explore the way their thoughts, feelings, and surroundings impact the choices they make and actions they take.”

Education

Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology, University of Lethbridge

Bachelor of Science (Honors) – Specialization in Biology-Psychology, Queens University

 

Philosophy

My approach is founded on two beliefs. One is that people want to be their best selves; they may just need some help finding what their best self looks like. Two is that humans are social animals; our brains are built for connection and we need safety to feel like we can heal, deal, grow and change.

 

Approach

In therapy, I operate from a trauma-informed and person-centered approach. I aim to listen non-judgmentally and with care. Most importantly, I believe that people are resilient. My focus within session is on how I am, not what I do. I strive to offer culturally sensitive treatment, where I acknowledge and encourage people to explore the way their thoughts, feelings, and surroundings impact the choices they make and actions they take. 

I hold training in Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (TF-CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Strength Based Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Thera-play (Level One Foundational), and Trauma-Focused Expressive Arts Therapy. I hold over 9 years of experience within the mental health field providing evidence-based assessment, diagnosis, and treatment for individuals, groups, and families. I’ve worked for non-profit organizations, school-based services, and Alberta Health Services Community Based Services. In addition, I have experience facilitating both group and individual therapy sessions and workshops.
