Danielle Mattson, M.Ed., Registered Provisional Psychologist

I am currently completing my PhD in School and Clinical Child Psychology at the University of Alberta, where I also earned my Master’s degree in the same program. I have had the opportunity to work and train in various settings, including public schools, private psychology practices, and community mental health clinics. Together, these experiences have allowed me to treat and assess individuals with a variety of different needs and goals.

The aim of all my work is to help people flourish. I am especially passionate about helping individuals identify their areas of personal strength and challenge through psychological assessment. I believe that such an understanding can be integral to empowering a person to pursue a life in which they feel valued, successful, and fulfilled. I view assessment as a collaborative process in which multiple perspectives are integrated, and I strive to ensure that everyone who is involved feels genuinely heard and ‘seen’ throughout this process.

Outside of work, I have long been driven by a love for travel, and I can probably be found chasing an adventure in another country when I have time off. When I am closer to home, I love doing almost anything involving the outdoors, good food, or my favourite people.
