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. 

Carolyn Miller

Carolyn holds a Master’s degree and is a registered social worker with a clinical specialization who comes with a phenomenal understanding of relationships. She is a Pro-EFW mentor, has worked for non-profit organizations, and served as a school counsellor, having developed a keen interest in trauma and relationships.

Amy Monea

Amy holds a Master’s degree and is a registered social worker. She has worked in psychiatric settings and has a keen understanding of mental illness and trauma, with a particular skill in equine assisted therapy. She works with adults and families primarily, having trained in EMDR and the Connect model.

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. 

Brett Gardiner

Brett Gardiner joins the Clinical team at Carrington & Co. as he works towards his Master of Counselling Psychology degree. As a relationship-focused therapist, Brett brings with him a diverse and unique background that proves invaluable in the counselling room.
