Registered Psychologist
Clinical Supervisor & Team Lead

Jennifer Mitchell | Registered Psychologist | Serenity Now Wellness Center | Integrated Physical & Mental Wellness Centre | Calgary

Jennifer Mitchell holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology, and a PhD in Community Health Sciences. She is a Registered Psychologist and has training in Hakomi, a mindfulness-centered somatic psychotherapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Treatment for Trauma, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and is working on a Sexual Health Certification through University of Alberta. In addition to private practice, Jennifer provides clinical supervision, teaches with Athabasca University, and is a research project coordinator at the University of Calgary.

Jennifer works with adults who have experienced childhood and complex developmental trauma, religious trauma, dissociation and relational trauma due to infidelity, and those struggling with out-of-control sexual behaviour/”sex addiction.” Jennifer is passionate about sex education and sexual health for all stages of development. She combines education and her experiences in dog rescue to support individuals who are caring for a palliative animal or have lost a pet. Based on education and personal experience, she has developed a special passion for working with individuals who are working in stressful, high-pressure environments (e.g. academia, medical field, mental health workers) and are looking for coping tools to manage chronic stress, anxiety and burnout.

Jennifer’s therapeutic work and clinical supervision are rooted in a strengths based and person-centred approach. She focuses on tapping into peoples’ capacity for change and assists individuals to ‘re-author’ their life story. Jennifer approaches individuals from a holistic, non-judgmental standpoint, and aims to respect all beliefs and social differences.

Jennifer employs a multifaceted approach to best support the unique and individual needs of each client. She largely draws on psychoeducation, solution-focused and narrative techniques to develop functional goals and strategies with her clients. Drawing, journaling, inner child work, HeartMath®, mindfulness, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and bibliotherapy are often used to help clients process their experiences and/or increase coping.

Jenn provides clinical supervision. If you are a provisional psychologist looking for supervision, please email Jenn directly to determine fit and availability. In your email please include a resume (please be sure to include the schooling, dates of schooling, references, practicum placements, and pertinent counseling/clinical or service provision work) and where you are in the CAP process. Please ensure that your interests are aligned with Jennifer’s interests and competency.
