Kira Gordon (Starting Sept. 2024)

Practicum Therapist

Kira completed her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at the University of Alberta and is currently completing her Masters of Arts in Counseling Psychology at Yorkville University. Prior to pursuing her Masters degree, Kira spent time working with at risk children, youth, and families.

Kira believes that we all struggle at some point throughout our lives, but likewise, all people have unique, innate strengths and a capacity for resilience and growth. Alongside Kira’s supportive and welcoming approach, her practice ties in biological, evidence based, and practical roots while working with clients to develop their innate capabilities and strengths.

In therapy, Kira works with clients to help them develop the resources, skills, and knowledge necessary to forge their own path and enhance their lives as they desire. To achieve these outcomes, Kira uses the following modalities in her work with clients:

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Solution Focused Therapy
  • Person-Centered Therapy
  • Strength-Based Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
  • Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Existential Therapy

In her free-time, Kira enjoys reading, is an outdoor enthusiast and avid martial artist.
