welcome to Michael White Psychology
I am happy to once again offer in-person counselling while maintaining physical distancing recommendations. Assessments can now also be arranged in-person with some physical barriers in place. Some health questions may be asked prior to your in-person appointment. I will continue to offer supportive counselling by secure video conferencing and, in special cases, telephone. In the meantime, keep washing your hands often and follow the instructions of provincial health officials.
Mike believes that psychology is a joint effort between a person and their therapist. Psychology is not about labelling; it is about helping people understand their own strengths and resilience. Respect for the client’s personal and cultural knowledge is at the centre of the caring relationship. From that respect change and improvement grows. Many mental health challenges have social and historical roots. With practice clients can learn to move beyond the past towards a healthier life.
Mike completed his Master of Education degree in Educational Psychology in 2007 and he has been a Registered Psychologist with the Saskatchewan College of Psychologists (#751) since 2008. He holds an Authorized Practice Endorsement (APE), which allows Mike to make a diagnosis. He is an approved mental health service provider through Indigenous Services Canada. Mike has worked in public school settings and in private practice both in Northern Saskatchewan and in Regina. He has been in the education field for more than 20 years. Prior to working in education, Mike worked on policy and advocacy in federal and provincial government institutions.
