Description

My name is Jesse Bacala, and I am a Registered Psychologist located in Calgary, Alberta. My experience has been robust and diverse in assisting people with mental health subjects and concerns which includes working with vulnerable populations, trauma-impacted individuals and families, and in clinical health settings and working with various ages, populations and cultures.

Facility Information

Summary

I started my practice to create a space that is healing, safe, and accepting to help you become more resilient, empowered, and content. Life is often difficult, confusing, and disappointing, but you are much more than your bad days, bad months or bad years. We believe that healing comes from recognizing your true self, living authentically, and balancing acceptance and change. With consistency and commitment, it is possible to break out of patterns that no longer serve a purpose. We offer a judgment-free space where we aim to support you in living the life you want, with peace and conviction.
