WE ARE WIRED TO DO HARD THINGS

You can do those hard things so much easier if you’re connected to someone who can help you make sense of it all.

Carrington Practice

Our team is strong, kind, and insightful, and made up of those who I have had the privilege of selecting, supervising, and mentoring. Each registered therapist has a clinical background and is highly skilled in relationship-focussed, trauma-informed practice. They all bring a unique skill set to the Carrington Practice that allows for consultation and collaboration when necessary. I’d love you to meet them.

Jody Carrington, PhD

Human connections shape neural connections. Through the relationships that young children have with their caregivers, they begin to develop the “story” of themselves and others around them. They decide two things: if they are worthy of love and support and if they are capable and competent beings. When they have these things in place, they have a much greater chance of developing into strong and healthy adults. The good news is that it’s never too late to develop these skills; to develop (or redevelop) strong and meaningful relationships that will influence others to have strong and meaningful relationships.

And since I’m currently not accepting new patients, I’ve gathered this amazing team to help you, your family, kids, or relationships make sense of it all.

Paul Berg

Paul began his career in education and now, with 30 years of experience, he works with children, youth, and families. His focus is on trauma, couples, parenting, first responders, and children. He has expertise with and is approved to counsel indigenous clients, and has training in EMDR, a proven support for people who have gone through trauma.

Darlene Ferris

Darlene was an educator first – having spent over 20 years in a classroom as a teacher and a basketball coach where she told me, she learned more than she ever taught. She decided to pursue a Master’s degree in Psychology after she became “the one” who many kids and families gravitated to when they were struggling. 

Alicia Carignan

Alicia is a provisional registered psychologist with a Master’s degree in Counselling. She is an incredible addition to the team, and comes with a depth of experience working as a school counsellor as well in pediatric psychiatric settings and adult corrections. Alicia works with kids, adults and families.
