Brad Hagen

Registered Psychologist

Welcome! Having worked in the mental health field for over 25 years (10 years as a Psychologist; 25 years as a University Educator, Researcher, and Registered Nurse), I have had the unique privilege of helping individuals, couples and families overcome and heal from all kinds of challenges that life can throw at us.

As a Registered Psychologist, I will work hard to earn your trust, and make you feel safe, heard, understood and respected as we work together to help you reach your goals. Rather than focusing on what’s ‘wrong’ with you, I’ll work collaboratively with you to help you heal from difficulties, losses and/or traumas that you may have experienced, or may still be experiencing.

I’m also very passionate about helping people to have the very best relationships they can, as the quality of our relationships is one of the biggest factors affecting how happy and peaceful we are in our lives. To take care of my own self, I’ve been happily married since 1997, enjoy time with animals and pets, have played and performed classical guitar for over 40 years, and enjoy skiing, cycling and mountaineering.
