Meet Our Team
Her passion for children dates back to her choice of profession: twenty years ago she worked towards earning a Degree in Psychology from the University of British Columbia while also working full time as a Youth Worker for PLEA Community Services, mentoring young people in the foster care system.
She took her education a degree higher: She completed a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology through The University of Chicago between 2001 and 2004 while also starting her family.
Upon moving to Calgary in 2006, Tasha worked full-time as a counsellor for AADAC (Alberta Alcohol & Drug Abuse Centre) in adolescent drug and alcohol treatment, gaining a deeper understanding of addiction and how it affects the entire family. She reduced to part-time in order to care for her growing family: She worked as a Play Therapist at Discovery House Family Violence Prevention and later The Alex Youth Health Center to focus on supporting young people with Depression, Anxiety and Trauma issues.
In 2010 she started a small private practice while also working towards the highest level of certification available in Alberta: in 2014 she became a Registered Psychologist with the Alberta College of Psychologist and formed her practice Tasha Belix Pyschology Ltd. Tasha is also the founder and Director of B’tween Girls Programs. A therapeutic group offered to girls aged 8-15 who are Super Feelers and need help coping with the stresses of everyday life. B’tween Girls also has an 8-week program offered to school, designed for grades 4,5 & 6. For more information visit www.btweengirls.ca. In addition to all of this Tasha contributes to the mentoring program for girls called Fast and Female. A program where acclaimed female athletes help support young girls and encourage confidence and well being through sporting activities. Last but not least, Tasha is a co-author of a book called ‘What do you do with a feeling’ due to be published in November 2018.

I started my career as a teacher and for 12 years I taught Grades 6-12 in Canada and overseas. I now provide counselling and consultation services within schools and private practice. I have a keen interest helping those struggling with relationships, transition/change, perfectionism, anxiety, depression and self-harm. My approach is creative, eclectic, and trauma-informed. I use a variety of evidence-based therapies, such as cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy, and EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing).
On a more personal note, when I’m not at work…you can find me walking with my husband, getting creative in the kitchen, enjoying a local music event or travelling to remote places. When I don’t think anyone is watching…you might find me blasting music and dancing for my dog;)
