Maria Schmid is a Registered Psychologist in the Province of Alberta (Cert.# 3415) and a certified Emotional Fitness Coach.
Drawing upon a depth of life experience, a broad breadth of knowledge and a reverence for all faiths and cultures, Maria is well qualified to assist you through life’s challenges and transitions.
Many of life's challenges are realised during times of transition. Whether it’s due to new stages in relationships, family or career, or changes in health and/or lifestyle, these events have the ability to significantly impact one’s life. Often what results from these transitions are feelings of anxiety, stress, depression, loss and failed coping mechanisms. Maria’s therapeutic approach is based on the idea that through these transitions, people can find understanding, purpose, connection, meaning and hope. Maria supports clients in a safe, creative and confidential environment. Her goal is to see clients through difficult times to emerge as stronger and more resilient individuals, empowered with strategies and the confidence to thrive through life’s changing circumstances.
Maria’s compassionate, supportive and empowering approach is especially important for putting new clients at ease during their initial appointments and engaging them in the processes most important to them. Maria is often told that she has a special way of allowing people to open up in ways they haven’t otherwise experienced.
