My name is Jasmine Fulks, a registered psychologist, and I am excited to be joining the established and talented team at Riversedge Counselling Services. Throughout my 18 years of experience I have worked in a variety of establishments, from providing in-patient addictions services to individuals suffering from addictions to offering intensive mental health treatment to adolescents in a hospital setting. I believe that my hands on experience working with a variety of populations has increased my capacity to be empathetic and understanding. I am passionate and dedicated to providing ethical and quality counselling services to couples, individuals and adolescents. Throughout my practical experience, I have studied how trauma and PTSD impact all areas of an individual’s life acquiring a specialization in the treatment of trauma. My love of learning and passion for helping has facilitated to me engaging in a variety of courses and intervention techniques, including: suicide and self-harm, anxiety interventions, working with individuals impacted by depression, advanced CBT interventions, trauma and attachment, addictions and trauma, codependency treatment, sound therapy and more.
I am a firm believer in engaging and living life in a balanced and healthy manner. Thankfully I have been blessed that I am able to do a job that I thoroughly love. However, when I am not working, I enjoy being out in nature with my husband and our black lab Charlie. We enjoy going to and supporting the local arts scene here in Edmonton and St. Albert by attending festivals and local markets. And while my artistic talents are somewhat limited, I engage in a number of personal pursuits, including drawing, coloring, making dreamcatchers and other artistic forms, however my particular favorite is working with chalks and canvas. Like many, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, and get a lot of personal satisfaction from these relationships.
I am thrilled to be starting my newest chapter in my life here at Riversedge.
