Dr. Allyson Clarke, Ph.D.
Registered Doctoral Psychologist
Dr. Allyson Clarke was born and raised in Saskatoon, SK. She completed a Bachelor of Arts Honours Degree at the University of Saskatchewan, and went on to complete a Master’s degree and PhD in Counselling/Clinical Psychology at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto (OISE/UT). Allyson returned to the prairies to complete her internship training and has worked in several clinical settings, including private practice, a community-based counselling centre and a university-based EAP program. She has experience working within multidisciplinary rehabilitation programs since 2015, first with FIT for Active Living (a tertiary rehabilitation program for individuals injured in motor vehicle collisions) and more recently with Kinetik Rehabilitation Services, where she supports individuals recovering from work-related injuries.
Allyson provides psychological assessment and treatment with adults struggling with issues including trauma, anxiety, depression, stress, life transitions, pain management, identity issues, and relationship problems. In addition to her academic training, she has completed additional training in cognitive-behavioural therapy, solution-focused therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and prolonged exposure therapy for trauma. Allyson believes in working in a collaborative, respectful and holistic way. She strives to help individuals realize the strengths they already possess and empower them to use these strengths – as well as any new learning that can be gained – to persevere and move forward in their healing and growth.
In her free time, Allyson enjoys spending time with her loved ones, baking, Netflix, yoga, Zumba, and swimming.
