Lydia has over 25 years of experience as a practitioner – currently as a registered psychologist in Alberta, following from 4 years in Ottawa (2014-2018), and 20 years as registered psychologist in Australia (1994-2014); and in Florida before that.

She works with individuals, couples and groups on building resilience and promoting psychological wellbeing; on issues ranging from anxiety and depression, stress, grief, trauma, relationship related, sport and performance, and with those facing health challenges.

Lydia holds a PhD from Florida State University specializing in counselling psychology, sport and health psychology. She received her MSc in Sport Psychology from the University of Ottawa; and Honours BA in Psychology from Carleton University.

Lydia is holistically minded in her approach to psychological issues and wellbeing, and has contributed to the RMIT University Masters of Wellness program in Australia, where she taught an online course on Positive Psychology for ten years. She is also author of the book Imagine: Using mental imagery to reach your full potential and associated guided imagery recordings.

Lydia draws on a variety of modalities in her practice that include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), mindfulness-based, positive psychotherapy, psychodynamic, coaching psychology, and transpersonal psychology. She integrates her training in the Gottman Method (Levels 1 and 2) with Emotionally Focussed Therapy (EFT) and Positive Psychology applications with couples.

Lydia has a very warm and engaging approach that creates a safe and accepting environment enabling sharing and exploring possibilities. With Lydia, you will: Learn to transform weaknesses into strengths, and let go of what’s been holding you back to more confidently pursue your goals and dreams. Become more self-aware and feel more in charge over your destiny. Improve decision-making (and reduce second guessing that can be debilitating). Handle stress and pressure better. Feel supported in facing the dark side of what is troubling you, to better see and cultivate what is best in you. Develop a better relationship with your body – to work with it rather than against it. Learn how to better navigate the storms in your relationship; to get back on track more quickly – to rebuilding trust, friendship and appreciation for one another.

Lydia is also conversant in Ukrainian and Russian languages.
