Dr. Kyleigh Schraeder obtained her MSc and PhD in Clinical Psychology at Western University in 2017, where her research focused on system-level issues related to access and use of children’s mental health services. She completed her pre-doctoral clinical residency at the Alberta Children’s Hospital, where she worked with children, youth, and families with a variety of mental health concerns.
Kyleigh is passionate about delivering evidence-based care that is backed by current research. She has trained and worked as a psychologist in several outpatient mental health clinics, specialist medical clinics, community mental health agencies, school boards, and two major paediatric tertiary care hospitals, including the Children’s Hospital of Western Ontario in London and the Alberta Children’s Hospital here in Calgary.
Kyleigh has extensive experience assessing and treating children, adolescents, and emerging adults with: anxiety and mood problems, health-related issues (such as complex pain and headaches), obsessive compulsive disorder, learning and attention problems, sleep difficulties, grief and loss, emotion regulation difficulties, relationship issues, and low self-esteem. She is also committed to supporting parents to feel better equipped to manage difficult behavior at home, and to better understand their children.
Kyleigh tailors each assessment and treatment to meet the unique needs of each child and family she meets. Her therapeutic approach includes cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and attachment-based interventions. When Kyleigh is not practicing, she is building a program of research at the University of Calgary that aims to improve care for youth with chronic and complex needs.
