Helping Individuals, Couples & Families Live Happier, Healthier Lives...


I am Dr. Michelle Vandegriend or as many clients like to call me "Dr. Michelle". I am a registered psychologist in private practice providing professional counselling services in St. Albert, Alberta.

I am passionate about helping people live happier lives individually and in their relationships. In my work with clients I value a collaborate approach - that means us working together to clarify and take steps towards your goals as well as ongoing feedback to ensure we are on track. I also value timely services where clients can contact me directly and not have to wait long for an appointment.

I believe that each person and couple is unique, and based on the presenting issue(s) I draw on a variety of counselling modalities to help clients move toward their therapeutic goals. I use an integrative approach which not only focuses on a client's presenting issue or problem but sees the "whole person" factoring in physical health issues, couples relationship, social and familial dynamics, culture, community, and spiritual aspects. Clients often comment that I am easy to talk to, down to earth, non-judgemental, and I incorporate a practical approach - "it makes sense". I also focus on clients' inner strengths to help them in healing, growth, and change.

In my practice I offer safe and supportive services that integrate evidence-based approaches grounded in psychological research, experience, and the highest standards of quality training to best serve clients' therapeutic needs. I am dedicated to helping people feel better about themselves and their relationships and to lead healthier lives within their community. I provide accessible, upstanding service in a counselling environment focused on excellence, expertise, and integrity.

Growth occurs when individuals confront problems,
struggle to master them, and through that struggle develop
new aspects of their skills, capacities, views about life.
– Carl Rogers
