Jacqueline Beatch, PhD
Jacqueline completed her Doctor of Philosophy in Clinical Psychology at the University of Calgary. She is in the process of gaining Registered Provisional status with the College of Alberta Psychologists.
For over a decade Jacqueline has worked directly with children and adolescents and their families. She has specialized in Autism Spectrum Disorder but also has experience and is interested in working with children and adolescents with developmental, learning, behavioural, mood, or anxiety difficulties.
Jacqueline takes a strengths based approach to assessment and intervention to promote confidence, self-esteem, and to help children and those around them recognize each child’s potential. She also individualizes each experience to the needs, strengths, and goals of the child and family.
Jacqueline believes in the importance of advocacy. Not only does she advocate for children and families but believes it is important to help each child and family develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence to advocate for their needs in the future.
Jacqueline is proficient in providing comprehensive assessments as well as individual and group intervention. She uses evidence-based approaches, meaning that the approaches have been well studied and researched, to guide her decision making. Her primary treatment modality is cognitive-behavioural, and she incorporates attachment-based, emotion-focused, and mindfulness skills into her work.
When Jacqueline is not working, she enjoys reading, art, traveling, and spending time with her family and friends.
