Welcome and Hello! My name is Ruth Proulx, and I am the owner and operator of Mountain View Psychological. I am a Registered Social Worker (#9320) with the Alberta College of Social Workers and a Provisional Psychologist (#1978p) with the College of Alberta Psychologists. I have over 15 years of experience in the helping field, where I have specialized as a trauma counsellor for about 10 years. I have recently completed my Masters of Science in Psychology, where I am currently working towards becoming a Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists (CAP), A Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA), and a Certified Gottman Couples Therapist with the Gottman Institute.
Over the years, I have completed many certifications and trainings pertaining to a number of areas in counselling. And, I have also supervised many Social Work and Nursing students. Beyond my counselling experience, I have done numerous speaking and teaching events for various groups. I am also an active volunteer and community member. I am proud to say that I have played collegiate sports in both volleyball and soccer, and I am a reservist in the Canadian Armed Forces (CIC).
I believe that our most difficult times can become some of our biggest opportunities. Hence, why I use Napoleon Hill's quote on my home page. I am always honored to work with my clients through these challenging times. If we allow ourselves to work through it, we have the opportunity to get what we truly want out of our lives.
