Jillian Thompson, (she/her)

Registered Psychologist/Sexual Health Educator

Hi, I’m Jillian. I am a registered psychologist and sexual health educator working in Calgary, Alberta.

My approach is strength-based and strives to be inclusive and anti-oppressive. I have experience with cognitive behavior therapy, functional family therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, solution focused brief therapy, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness. I believe people exist within a context (family, school, church, community) – and working toward solutions involves both individuals and communities.

  • Frontline youth work
