Verlyne Christensen - Counselling PsychologistI received my Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Counselling Psychology from the University of Calgary and am a registered psychologist in the province of Alberta. Throughout my 11 years of clinical experience, I have had the opportunity to help various individuals, couples and families live more satisfying lives. I also have an interest in research and am exploring the impact that the culture of a religion can have on individuals. Specifically, I am intrigued by the cultural elements of a religion (both positive and negative) that can become the lens through which we interpret our experiences and address our most personal concerns. My hope is to help individuals and couples understand the religious, familial, cultural and societal forces that influence them and help them find their own personal balance. I am passionate about this topic and have had the opportunity to publish my work and present it at various national and international conferences.
