Sara Jungen


          I am a Registered Psychologist and the Principal Associate of Menla Psychological Counselling.  After completing a Bachelor's degree with honours from the University of Calgary, I earned a Master's in Contemplative Psychotherapy from Naropa University.  I am also trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Couples Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Hakomi Body-Centred Psychotherapy.

          I am passionate about creating therapeutic relationships that feel safe, supportive and empowering.  Combining eastern ideas of mind with western psychology, I gently encourage self awareness and healing in my clients and offer them tools that facilitate change in their lives. I regularly apply mindfulness meditation, a practice that enhances well being and empathy through increasing attention to the present moment. I share these mindfulness skills with my clients in group meditation classes, and as part of individual therapy.
