MEET KERRI

Kerri Severin, B.A., M.C.

Registered Psychologist in Edmonton

EMDR Therapist

Kerri Severin Psychologist

Hello, I’m Kerri Severin, a Registered Psychologist in good standing with the College of Alberta Psychologists.

I am a culturally sensitive, trauma-informed, empathetic, genuine, and warm counsellor who
believes in cultivating a strong working alliance with my clients. I use person-centered, Solution-
Focused (SFT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and Eye
Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) approaches to counsel clients. My approach to working with children involves building genuine rapport and using play therapy, sandplay therapy, and art therapy to help kiddos process their experiences and learn how to grow from them.

I have experience working with people of all ages (from children 6 years and older, to teens and adults), helping clients work through children’s issues (school, peer relationships, coping skills), depression, anxiety, stress, gender identity, sexuality, grief and loss, PTSD, addiction, self-esteem, work-related issues and life transitions. I am also dedicated to helping people achieve overall life balance, including work/life balance for professionals. I worked at the Family Center and Pride Centre of Edmonton during my practicum, and I am an LGBTQ2S+ ally.

My goal is to help my clients feel understood and safe, while helping them reach their mental health goals. I believe that counselling offers a safe place for people of all ages to increase hope, identify personal strengths, and grow awareness in order to function better in life.

In my free time I enjoy keeping active, salsa dancing, traveling, spending time with my boyfriend, three daughters, family, and friends.
