Training and Experience
My name is Mariana Grinman and I am a Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists. I have been working within the psychology field since 2002.
I am fluent in English and Spanish.
I have ample experience in counselling and psycho-educational assessments. I have worked in
counselling centres, hospitals, public schools, and private practice. I have been working extensively with a range of issues, particularly those concerning immigrant populations, health care workers, as well as pregnancy/post-partum (infants under 18 months of age are welcome to attend sessions).
I draw from various therapeutic techniques in order to best suit your needs. Some of these therapies are based on expressing or regulating emotions, while others are more concerned with identifying negative thoughts and how they influence us.
