Dr. Elliott is a registered doctoral psychologist (SK # 1254) with the Saskatchewan College of Psychologists and has her Authorized Practice Endorsement (APE), which allows her to diagnose psychological disorders.  She practices in the area of Adult Clinical Psychology, providing both individual and group therapy as well as mental health assessments.  Dr. Elliott completed her PhD at the University of Ottawa and her pre-doctoral residency in the Calgary Residency program.  She worked for several years in Tertiary Mental Health Services in Kamloops, B.C., before moving into private practice.  Dr. Elliott is thrilled to be back “home” in her home-town of Regina and working with the team at Greenspace Psychology.

Dr. Elliott works from a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) approach, with a strong emphasis on the so-called “third wave” CBT approaches including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as well as some Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and some Dialectical Behaviour Therapy-informed approaches.  Taking a predominantly trans-diagnostic approach to treatment (i.e., the focus is more on function than diagnosis), allows Dr. Elliott to help individuals with a wide array of difficulties by helping them to establish what their goals are for treatment and address what is preventing them from reaching their goals (e.g., difficulties with emotions, thoughts, skills, etc.).  With a background in working with severe and persistent mental illness, Dr. Elliott also incorporates a recovery-based approach to mental health (i.e., she focuses on finding meaning and quality of life, as one learns to live along side difficult experiences).

Dr. Elliott’s experiences include working with individuals struggling with mood (including lived experience of Bipolar Disorder) and anxiety disorders, lived experience of psychosis, as well as trauma and stressor-related disorders and personality disorders.  She also works with many individuals who may not meet criteria for a diagnosis, but are unhappy with aspects of their life and would like to make some changes (e.g., struggles with confidence, perfectionism, procrastination, burn-out, and interpersonal conflict).

When not at work Dr. Elliott is busy with her puppy (whom she is also helping to learn to manage big emotions!), and engaging in her passion of doing various dog sports, spending time learning to garden on the family farm, and looking for her next travelling adventure.
