About Tiffany Smith

My View of Therapy

I view the journey of therapy as one that can be needed for a season, a reason or a lifetime. Each person brings their own strengths into the process and I love being invited to walk along side my clients. My hope is that each client leaves their session with a direction and practice for between sessions.

It has been my experience that the therapeutic relationship offers a chance for healing and gaining better understanding of ourselves. Therefore it is always my first goal to create an environment for you to safely explore your authentic self.

A Personal Note

I have volunteered and worked within the mental health realm for many years. Despite always having a strong interest in psychology, I chose a career path in sales and marketing. After many successful years in this area, I decided to complete a Masters Degree and begin my journey to register as a psychologist. My windy road to this space allows me to greater understand the various paths my clients walk. I am grateful for the life experience I bring into my office as it often helps create clarity and perspective for myself and my clients.

When I’m not hunkered down with a book (continuing my learning or just for enjoyment) you can often find me trying the newest restaurants in Calgary. I love the way food brings us together and enjoy sharing this experience with friends and family. Travel plans are always a topic of discussion as embracing the cultures of the world is a passion of mine.


I am currently accepting new clients. I offer evening and weekend availability for your convenience. If you cannot find a time that’s suitable reach out and I’m sure to have something!
