Alicia Specializes in Relationships, Couples, Family Therapy

& Equine Facilitated Wellness

Alicia Hinger is a Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists (CAP). She brings over 20 years of experience to the field of clinical assessment and counselling. Alicia’s career started out in the forensic field and she continues to work in this field part-time. She completed her Bachelor of Science Degree in 1995 and then went onto complete her Masters Degree in Professional Counselling (Counselling psychology) in 1998. She began her work in private practice that same year and has maintained this practice ever since. In addition, she has worked for the Solicitor General, Correctional Services, National Parole Board, Community Corrections and Alberta Child and Family Services providing assessment, individual, family and group therapy. Although many of her contracts have been focused on Assessment (Addictions, Parenting, At-Risk or High-Risk behaviours, Personality etc), her clinical interests have always remained “Systems” oriented, heavily rooted in Attachment theory. She brings her knowledge of this theory to counselling through the use of thorough assessment (including primary attachment relationships) and the creation of a truly individualized treatment plan for each couple (or individual) she works with. In addition to her many years of clinical/assessment work and training, she also utilizes the Gottman method for couples (level II), Emotions Focused Therapy (EFT) by Les Greenberg and Susan Johnson and is currently under supervision (after completing the training) by the founder of the Psychobiological Approach to Couples Counselling (PACT), Stan Tatkin. She maintains regular contact with her consultation group and travels to Los Angeles four times a year to meet with Mr. Stan Tatkin in person to review her work. Although this is above and beyond the requirements of her regulatory body (the College of Alberta Psychologists) she feels it is of utmost importance to maintain the highest standards of continued learning, consultation and service for her clients here in Southern Alberta. The PACT approach provides a sound framework for the integration of other theories and interventions. PACT is heavily rooted in Attachment theory, developmental, neuroscience, psychobiological regulatory systems (including the neuroendocrine systems) and therapeutic enactment. It is developing into one of the most popular and effective means for working with couples.
