Ramona Kotke Gapp

Registered Provisional Psychologist



Whether this is your first time coming to therapy or not, the thought of pouring out your inner most vulnerable feelings to a stranger may feel overwhelming. People often spend a lot of energy faking good, saying “I`m fine” when they honestly are not fine. Even though I don’t yet know you, I am excited for your future. It takes guts to be honest about how you feel, to venture into the unknown and open up to the possibility to change. By taking the steps to find the right therapist, you are on your way to being truly heard, getting your thoughts organized, finding your answers, reaching your goals, and healing your pain. Asking for someone to listen to you, and requesting feedback and assistance, is courageous and smart. Congratulations. I look forward to meeting you.

my areas of focus with adults


As a Registered Provisional Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists, Ramona Kotke Gapp has been helping people identify strengths, meet goals, and reach their full potential for many years, in business and in life. Through years of work in the corporate world as a trainer, volunteering in schools and with children`s organizations, and from her rich internship experience providing counselling and group therapy for survivors of domestic violence, she has developed a unique and broad set of skills.

Ramona has provided individual therapy and group counselling for clients of all ages, all walks of life and from many different cultural backgrounds.

Ramona specializes in the needs of children and their families. She utilizes a client-centered, strength-based approach and employs evidence-based methods such as cognitive behavioural therapy, solution focused therapy, art therapy, play therapy, and social skills training. She believes Parents are a child`s first best teacher, so she strongly encourages Parents to grow with their child, and she draws from her own experiences as a Mother to add authenticity to her sessions. She meets the client where they are, and is passionate about empowering them to attain their therapeutic goals.
