Joanna Card
Registered Psychologist


I am a Registered Psychologist in Calgary specializing with Adolescents, Young Adults, and Families. I have worked with youth and families for over 10 years in schools, hospitals, community settings, and in private practice. I am passionate about working with teens and young adults aged 12 to 35 and helping them grow into confident and successful people with effective life-management skills.

My counseling approach is holistic and creative - integrating mind, body, emotions, and the environment within a developmental and neurobiology-oriented framework. I combine the latest research in brain development and attachment-related issues, and use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Integrative Body Psychotherapy, Creative Arts Therapy, Parent Coaching, and other treatment modalities and skills training to provide my clients with comprehensive and efficient care.
