Sunday Komolafe, MA.
Registered Provisional Psychologist
I graduated in 2020 with a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology, from Yorkville University in New Brunswick and I am a Provisionally Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists. I enjoy working with couples, children (ages 7 and up), adolescents, youths, families, and adults who have diverse needs. I want to use my knowledge and experience in clinical therapeutic counselling and case management, behavioral monitoring, psychological testing, research methods, and rehabilitation techniques to help you.
I bring a compassionate, understanding, and friendly demeanor in my work with you as I help you to see your positive qualities, strengths, and exceptional abilities. It is my goal to support you in core areas that enhance your self-development and self-understanding. I view these areas as one of the many paths to navigate, explore, and manage unique life experiences and challenges. I trust that you have and will assist you to realize your capacity to find solutions, coping skills, and strategies and access your inner strengths. The most motivating part of my work is when I witness my clients find fulfillment through what we learned together.
I believe in working in partnership with clients to use their strengths to help them sort out their challenges and achieve their goals. I also realize how important it is to identify all aspects of an individual’s life that impact their well-being including their physical health, support systems (family, friends, etc.), work or school environment, culture, and faith/spirituality in this process. I also believe that culturally responsive treatment includes engaging the community being served and ensuring that healing processes fit within that cultural context.
I would love to support you in any of the following areas: Stress Management, Burnout, Phobias, Self-harm, Self-esteem, Anxiety, Grief/Loss, Trauma, Depression, Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), Substance Abuse, and Gambling. I tailor each support using theoretical frameworks such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Psychoeducation, Grounding Techniques and Motivational Interviewing (MI).
I love playing soccer, traveling, listening to music, dancing, and entertainment of all kinds. I enjoy hanging out with family members, friends, and colleagues. In addition, I like to go for long walks in nature, watch movies with my family and play table tennis.
