Welcome! I'm glad you're here!
My name is Sally Merrick and I am a registered psychologist in Alberta. My practise, Tangled Roots, is located in Country Hills, Calgary.
I provide individual counselling to adults in-person and online.
Why did I name my practise 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 into 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.
for adults to support
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:
I see clients Tuesday-Friday with afternoon and evening appointments available.
