Hi, I'm Ashley!
My name is Ashley Bishop Lapierre (she/her) and I am a Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists and a Certified Perinatal Mental Health Professional (PMH-C). I specialize in providing counselling services for women's mental health and relationships.
Virtual counselling services are available to all Alberta Residents 18+. I am also happy to expand services for residents of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.
The 'fit' between client and counsellor is an important factor in determining the effectiveness of counselling. I invite you to explore this website to learn about me and how we might work together so you can make an informed decision if you think we would be a good 'fit'.

Why I specialize in women's mental health
It can be hard to be a woman.
Women experience a unique set of stressors. We are moving closer toward equality, but we still live in a patriarchal society and that impacts women’s mental health. We feel societal expectations, pressure, oppression, and stress in everything we do, and this can negatively impact our sense of self.
I hold a special sensitivity to what it means to be a woman in today’s world, and I have a deep passion for helping empower women to live their best lives. This is backed by extensive training and experience in women's mental health issues.
Naturally, we all have other identities besides being a woman, and we all have different experiences. Counselling looks at what it means to be YOU in this world.
While women’s mental health is my specialty, I do not only work with women. Depending on your concerns, I might be a good fit for men and non-binary people as well. Reach out if you want to discuss if I might be a good fit for you.
Life can be hard sometimes
