Michelle J Buckle, MA, CCC, RDT

Michelle is a registered psychologist, dramatherapist, certified Canadian counsellor, and educator in Alberta and Ontario with over 26 years’ experience providing mental health services for youth, adults, and families. In addition to teaching and training diverse populations, Michelle has provided assessment and intervention services for institutions, school boards, community mental health agencies, and in private practice. 

Working with individuals, groups, families, and couples, Michelle finds that people are spiritual, social, emotional, intellectual, and physical beings, each on a journey to find balance in all areas. Michelle primarily uses embodied methods rooted in psychotherapeutic practices to treat a variety of issues including self-esteem, bullying, trauma and abuse, stress, anxiety, depression, relationship problems, family conflict, co-parenting, and grief and loss. 

Michelle also uses the expressive arts therapies to encourage clients of all ages to identify their values, goals, and skills, meanwhile tapping into their creative gifts for healing. Michelle further shares her passion for hearing people’s stories by using theatre to inspire conflict transformation, community building, environmental awareness, and creative solutions to social justice issues. 

In her spare time, Michelle enjoys singing, going to the theatre, reading a good suspense novel, and dancing in the rain. But most of all, she loves helping people on their journey to transform their lives and heal their minds, bodies, hearts, and souls. She is a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a friend. Michelle was born in England, raised in Canada, and is of Jamaican heritage.
