Nora MacQuarrie, MEd



You can be assured that you will always be respected and held in the highest regard for the resilient, resourceful and capable person you are when you meet with me.  I have over 20 years experience supporting clients. Clients describe me as collaborative, helpful, gentle, caring, insightful, nurturing, genuinely warm and emotionally supportive.  My office is a welcoming private heritage office building, with front and back office entrances for your privacy.  Central Calgary residential setting, one block from 17 Avenue SW, in Lower Mount Royal, with free parking and transit route access.

Client satisfaction is my top priority. You will take away skills and strategies to be your own personal therapist and coach.  I see it happen every day, day in and day out.  And I'm willing to bet that it can happen for yourself or for your teenager.  

Even the most quote/unquote "closed off" teens engage and come back.  

Had a less than great experience when you tried counselling in the past?  This won't happen again.  

I have a 100% client return rate; clients don't drop out because they make progress.  And you will too because I tailor my treatment to you individually using an Integrated Therapy Model including Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Solutions-Focused Therapy, Motivational Counselling, Relational-Cultural Therapy and Trauma-Informed Tapping Therapy.  I also specialize in working with diverse cultures and circumstances;  LGBTQ+ affirmative practice.  Results oriented.  Competent. Compassionate.  

Evening and weekend sessions available, including weekend groups.  No delay in booking appointments/wait times.  

Contact me today for a no-obligation 30-minute consultation to see if I am the right professional for you.

1023 Cameron Avenue SW
