Dylan Tait

Registered Provisional Psychologist

Hello! My name is Dylan, I am a Registered Provisional Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists and have been working and volunteering in the field of mental health since 2017. After
trying to pursue a career in hockey (check stats for giggles), I successfully obtained a Bachelor of Arts (kinesiology) and Science (psychology) from the University of Lethbridge while also playing on the varsity Pronghorns hockey team for five seasons (again, stats = giggles). I rounded out my post-secondary education with a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University.
My approach to counselling is to provide an individually tailored, evidence-based therapy experience. I typically employ person-centered and cognitive behavioural approaches to counselling,
while also incorporating general systems, evolutionary, neuropsychological, and mindfulness-based perspectives depending on client needs. I also have the pleasure of bringing my (Greater Swiss Mountain) dog Luna to work with me most days, she is an incredibly warm and gentle (although sometimes clumsy)
creature (also, apologies in advance if you leave with more dog hair than you arrived with). I believe a strong and healthy therapeutic relationship between myself and my clients is essential to beneficial
counselling outcomes. My goal as a therapist is to create a safe and empathic space for my clients in which they feel accepted, valued, supported, and empowered. Although I have experience working with a variety of client concerns, I have a vested interest in working with individuals affected by cancer (either directly or indirectly) given some of my own experiences with the disease. If you or someone you know has been impacted by cancer, I would consider it an honour and a privilege to support you/them along the
journey, whatever it may look like.
In taking care of my own mental health, I enjoy participating in and watching sport (mostly hockey), listening to music (always), walking/biking with my family, watching movies and reading (scifi/fantasy), knitting, stargazing, observing nature, and playing video and board games. Thank you for taking the time to learn a bit about me and my approach, I look forward to learning more about you in the future.
