Karim McCallum

Registered Psychologist

Welcome! I have worked in the fields of Mental Health, Addictions, and Support Services since 2001 in various capacities including; Counsellor, University Instructor, and Researcher. In 2018 I also became a Registered Psychologist.

As a helping professional, I strive to assist those I work with feel safe, supported, and respected; while having the privilege to help others achieve their personal goals and build on areas of personal growth, health/healing, wholeness, harmony, and fulfillment within their lives and relationships with others. In my downtime

I enjoy being a lifelong learner, appreciating quality time and connections with loved ones, engaging in creative outlets (music, art, cooking, etc.), practicing self care of body/mind/spirit, hanging out in my favorite spots within both the city and nature, and participating in arising adventures, events, and projects that inspire me.
