All About Angela
Angela MacKay , Psychologist Picture

Believe it or not, I knew I wanted to be a psychologist when I was just fourteen years old. And so, right after high school, I attended Acadia University and obtained my Bachelor of Science with Honors in Psychology, and then went out west to the University of Calgary to complete my Masters of Science in Clinical Psychology, graduating in 2001. In 2009, I completed level three of the Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy training. In 2013, I completed 286 hr Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training with Hart Lazer and most recently, I completed a teaching training in Goddess Yoga, a unique fusion of vinyasa yoga and bellydance.

I'm enthusiastic about my work, creatively drawing from both Eastern and Western traditions. As well as being trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, I am a certified Logosynthesis Practitioner. I also practice and study Ashtanga yoga and Tibetan Buddhism and so can bring a mindfulness component to my work.

I am a member of the Association of Psychologists of Nova Scotia, a Registered Psychologist with the Nova Scotia Board of Examiners in Psychology and have been offering psychological services in Halifax since 2005.

I offer counseling/play therapy to children, adolescents, adults and families. I have training and clinical experience in the following areas of concern:

Depression, Anxiety, Anger Management, Eating Disorders/body image, Trauma, Behaviour Difficulties, ADHD, Self-esteem, Addictions, Parenting, Gay/lesbian/bisexual Issues, Stress Management, and Communication Skills.

While I have always been a writer in some form or another, it was not until recently that I decided I wanted a career in writing children's literature, mainly for a middle grade/ Young Adult audience. I am currently submitting a manuscript for the first book in a dark fantasy series for Young Adult readers to both Canadian and American agents and publishers.
