Dr. Barb Backs-Dermott
Ph.D., R.Psych.

Specialist in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy

I am a registered Clinical Psychologist with close to 20 years of experience in both the public and private system.  I specialize in providing Cognitive-Behavioral therapy for adults suffering from depression and anxiety disorders, and I incorporate additional strategies and perspectives into my practice (e.g., mindfulness meditation,  transdiagnostic approaches, schema-focused therapy). I value a collaborative approach that emphasizes learning new skills, reducing distress, and building on strengths.

Due to Covid-19 public health restrictions, all individual therapy sessions are currently being offered via a secure telemedicine platform.

Dr. Backs-Dermott is proud to support the Disaster Response Network established by the Psychologists’ Association of Alberta.  To access this service, contact the PAA office at paa@paa-ab.ca, or call toll free 1-888-424-0297.
