Hopeful Horizons Calgary Psychologist

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.

As a Registered Psychologist, I offer virtual counselling services to all residents of Alberta. I am also pleased to extend my virtual counselling to residents of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Nunavut.

The 'fit' between client and counsellor is an important factor in determining the effectiveness of counselling. This website was designed to answer all your curiosities about what our work might look like. There is so much information here and invite you to explore.

Why I specialize in women's mental health

It is hard to be a woman in 2023!

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.

Women receive constant direct and indirect messaging about what it means to be a woman or a mom in this world. As a result, we internalize these unrealistic and patriarchal standards and can be left feeling like a failure when we inevitability do not measure up. We feel societal expectations, pressure, oppression, and stress in everything we do, and 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. 


I go to a therapist

not to get fixed,

but to be reminded 

that I am not
