Aryn Lisitza (she/her)

Born and raised in the Foothills, I have strong roots in Calgary and the surrounding area. I first attended the University of Calgary for a Bachelor’s in Health Sciences Honours and then for my Masters of Science in Counselling Psychology. In that time, I accrued nearly a decade of research experience, and I continue to conduct relevant practice-related research as a Research Associate at the Werklund School of Education. Initially, my unique background in the Health Sciences and focus on research, leadership, and social justice drew me to the public sector where I have been working for several years as a counsellor, group facilitator, and member of the Anti- Racism, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee.

I am now a registered Provisional Psychologist (p7223) in Alberta. I take a highly integrative and collaborative approach to counselling, drawing from several therapeutic modalities as well as clients’ ways of knowing and being. I have experience working with neurodevelopmental differences across the lifespan including giftedness, autism, ADHD as well as other challenges such as trauma, anxiety, and depression. I most enjoy counselling adolescents and adults with emotional, social/relational, and existential challenges.
