Alicia Berze-Butts earned a B.A. in Psychology from St. Francis Xavier University (first-class honours), and an M.A. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Windsor. She has received quality training and experience providing assessments and psychotherapy for adult clients (ages 17+ years) with a wide variety of mental health challenges, including issues with depression, anxiety, OCD, ADHD, self-esteem, body image, work/school stress, grief, and interpersonal relationships.
Ms. Berze-Butts’ master’s research thoroughly explored topics such as body image, social comparisons, self-photo editing behaviours, and the effects of social media. Additionally, she has assisted with numerous research projects at the University of Calgary studying topics such as romantic relationships and intergroup relations. This extensive research informs her therapy work with clients struggling with intimate partnerships and difficult interpersonal challenges.
Ms. Berze-Butts utilizes evidence-based treatment methods to facilitate the well-being of clients, namely Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), which she tailors to the individual’s personal therapy needs, concerns, and goals. She highly values taking a collaborative, client-centred approach to therapy and maintains a warm and empathetic interpersonal style in order to provide a comfortable environment where clients can feel safe, supported, and understood.
