Hi, my name is Karen Ladan. As a counselor, I believe that everyone has their own ability to heal from life's challenges and my job is to help you in that healing journey. I received my Bachelor Degree in Psychology in 1991 from Camrose Lutheran College (now Augustana University College). I then took a break in my educational journey and in 2019 I completed my Graduate Degree in Counselling from Athabasca University. In the time between degrees, I worked 10 years in Family Support Work with Children Services and then 20 years as a School Counselor.  I'm a Certified Canadian Counselor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. I'm currently employed as an Addictions Counselor for Alberta Health Services and would be happy to see you for your addiction concerns at my place of employment. For all other counselling concerns, please contact me by email.
Pictured with me is Mardy, who is an Certified Emotional Support Animal and accompanies me in counselling sessions for client's emotional support.
