Tangled Roots

Welcome! I'm glad you're here! 

  

My name is Sally Merrick (she/her), and I am a registered psychologist in Alberta. My practice, Tangled Roots, is in Country Hills, Calgary. 

  

I provide individual counselling to adults in-person and online.

Tangled Roots

Why did I name my practice Tangled Roots? 

  

Think of the giant cedars on the west coast.  

  

These trees are magnificent, grounded, and wise. They have a strong peaceful presence. But what we see is only above the surface.    

  

Roots can represent the unconscious, what lies below the surface of our awareness but significantly shapes how we experience the world.   

  

Roots can also represent our past. Like our unconscious, sometimes our histories feel messy and tangled. The roots of our unconscious and our past are also entangled in our experience and relationships. Opening to this part of us allows us to heal and integrate into wholeness.    

  

The tangled roots of a tree are what connect to Mother Earth and to other trees. I see attachment styles reflected in how connected we are to ourselves, each other, and the Earth.  

  

When we slow down, be still, and become grounded like trees, we can begin to recover from the devastating seasons in our lives. 

What I offer

I offer individual psychotherapy for adults to support lasting transformation. 

If you're here, perhaps you're feeling overwhelmed, stuck, or hurt. Maybe you're looking to make a change in your life but don't know how to do it. Whatever brings you here, there may be a part of you reaching out for help and I'm here to offer that help to you. 

I work with adults 24-years of age and older to address a wide variety of concerns including:

 

Trauma 

Attachment 

Relationships 

Anxiety 

Depression 

Self-esteem 

Identity  

I see clients Tuesday-Friday with afternoon and evening appointments available. 

If you are ready to dive into this work together, please email me to set up a 15-minute no-charge phone consultation or book an initial appointment through my online calendar. 

I look forward to connecting with you!
