Education & Experience

I have a Yorkville University Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology (2018). In addition I am a Registered Social Worker authorized to perform restricted psycho-social interventions with the Alberta College of Social Workers(2000) and I am a Therapeutic Play Practitioner. I have worked in my own private practice at Sonita Goehring Counselling Services since 2018. Prior to this I worked for Alberta Health Services, Mental Health for 19 years. I began my career in 1999 and worked as a Group Facilitator, Mental Health Consultant, and a Mental Health Therapist. During this time I have had the opportunity to work with children, youth, adults and families. Workplace settings have included Alberta Health Services Mental Health and Addiction, Medicine Hat Public School District 76, the Catholic Board of Education, Alberta Health Services PAS program and private practice. I have experience in both group and individual settings. I look forward to working with you!
