EXPERIENCE CHANGE WITH WHITE LION PSYCHOLOGY
“Everything can be taken from a man but... the last of the human freedoms - to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances”
A Bit About Therapy
Effective psychotherapy helps clients to improve their understanding of themselves and encourages them to develop new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the client and therapist alike. Making small changes and learning to cope with difficult or uncomfortable feelings can bring life-altering results.
A Bit About Me
Christa Stehr, MACP, RPsych
Life comes with many challenges. At times, we are able to manage these challenges and sometimes we need some help. I’m Christa Stehr, a Registered Psychologist offering services in both Calgary and Edmonton. I'm here to help guide you through life’s most complex and difficult times. I truly care about my clients’ well-being so I tailor my counselling and psychological services to meet their individual needs.
I am here to help with issues such as anxiety, depression, family conflict, parenting, stress and burnout, grief and loss, trauma, relationship difficulties, effective communication, life transitions (such as children leaving home or moving into retirement) and adjustment issues (such as losing a job or the breakdown of a relationship). I also offer skills training in parenting, discipline, mindfulness, communication, cognitive modification and emotional management.
I come from a background in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Therapy (SFBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I am also a certified Yoga Teacher. My belief is that you have the insight, strength and knowledge to be able to create healing and change in your life. It is through a team approach that I work with clients to determine their goals and the ways through which we can achieve them.
Please contact me for a free 15-minute consultation. We can discuss your concerns and determine whether we are a good fit to work together.

A Bit About White Lions
Why white lions?
There is a great deal of symbolism associated with white lions.
Lions: Lions represent courage, strength, power and loyalty. Their noble and regal attitudes emulate independence and confidence, balanced by a quiet demeanour. Lions are known to roar only when it is necessary. They have a strong and loving family life and work together to ensure everyone’s needs are met. The lion represents many of the values and characteristics that can help us to live a rich and balanced life.
White Lions: White lions represent the uniqueness that we all have as individuals. They are not albinos but are their unique colour because of a rare gene.
Due to overhunting, they were actually considered extinct in 2004, but have returned in numbers with the help of humans (reserves, zoos and societies). They embody strength and resilience and show us that we sometimes need help to become the best version of ourselves.
It was once thought that white lions would not be able to survive because of their inability to camouflage. Evidence now shows that their coloring does not hinder their survival. Like us, white lions are able to stand out and still thrive.
At White Lion Psychology we love helping our clients develop the tools they need to cope with all of life’s challenges. Contact us today to learn more and book a session.
