About Me

• Registered Psychologist in Alberta • Clinical Fellow, American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) • Certified EMDR Therapist • Certified Gottman Therapist Dr. Meiers has been working in the counseling field since 1970, receiving his Ph.D. in Counselling Psychology from The University of Alberta in 1992. Initially working with troubled teens and their parents in family therapy, Dr. Meiers was licensed in California in 1980 as a marriage, family, and child therapist. In 1989 he became registered as a Psychologist in Alberta. Dr. Meiers completed levels I and II of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy training from the EMDR Institute in 1998. Today Dr. Meiers is a Certified Therapist in EMDR by EMDR International Association. In his practice, Dr. Meiers sees a wide range of clients: adults, teens, and children from alcoholic families, adults who have experienced developmental traumas [sexual, physical, and emotional abuse] (often in the context of their own dysfunctional family of origin), clients with PTSD, couples who are seeking to strengthen their relationship, families looking for new ways to resolve old problems, and individuals who keep repeating the past. Depending on the presenting problem and a client's history, Dr. Meiers often integrates EMDR Therapy and Gestalt Therapy or Structural Family Therapy. Dr. Meiers leads individual and small group supervision sessions developing critical theoretical and practical therapeutic skills for Registered Provisional psychologists.
