Counsellors - Mental Health Therapist
Welcome to McTavish I am proud to say, this is my fourth year as a member of the McTavish family!
I am a Mental Health Therapist, and I provide therapeutic counseling to students and families. I have extensive training in a number of psychotherapies including but not limited to: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, Play Therapy and Attachment-Focused Parenting. I work one-on-one with students and families and I also provide support to parents through the Circle of Security Relationship Program for Caregivers.
I have lived in Fort McMurray for twenty years and since that time worked as a Registered Social Worker with the Alberta College of Social Workers (ACSW). Since 2000 I have been gaining experience supporting students and families within the School Districts of Fort McMurray. After gaining much experience as a Social Worker I furthered my education by obtaining a Master’s Degree in Counseling/Psychology and I am currently Registered as a Provisional Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists (CAP) and a Certified Canadian Counselor with Canadian Counseling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA).
My husband and I have two beautiful children, an 11 year old son, and a 15 year old daughter. We enjoy spending time camping, vacationing and visiting with family and friends. My son enjoys hockey, taekwondo and being a leader at his school and my daughter loves music, dance, and creative art. I truly enjoy connecting with others. I look forward to reconnecting with students and families this school year and meeting our new McTavish Families.
Kind Regards, Tracy Walsh, RSW, CCC, Registered Provisional Psychologist
