McKenzie is a Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists and practices in the areas of clinical, counselling, health, and rehabilitation psychology.  McKenzie has experience working nationally and internationally in residential, inpatient, outpatient, community, and private settings providing individual, couples, family, and group services to diverse populations and age ranges.

McKenzie currently works in his private practice where his clinical focus is on brain injury rehabilitation, chronic pain management, trauma, domestic violence, substance use, behavioral addiction, and personality disorders.

As an associate faculty member McKenzie is able to integrate his clinical experience to the classroom and support learners with translating theoretical knowledge to clinical practice. 

Research

McKenzie’s current research interests pertain to the interconnection between diet, lifestyle, and supplementation and their impact on mental health treatment. More specifically, McKenzie is examining whether these factors can be used as an intervention when treating symptoms of emotional dysregulation in adult populations. Other areas of interest also include how the PERMA model of positive psychology may impact longevity and health outcomes.

Teaching

My approach to teaching is student-centred and supporting students with experiential learning that values collaboration and perspectives related to diversity, inclusion, social justice, and systemic issues. I focus on engaging students in a reflective state of mind, developing critical thinking, and helping them develop their own pathway to learning.

I am a Registered Psychologist and have been practicing since 2017.  I work with clients across Alberta (in person and virtually) for concerns relating to abuse, anxiety, depression.  I’m also trained as an EMDR therapist and specialize in the areas of grief and loss and trauma.

In addition to counselling, I work as a consultant for organizations across a range of fields such as health care, oil and gas, legal, and front-line services.  I have also worked in partnership with for profit and not for profit organizations, municipalities, and post secondary institutes.  I provide support to organizations through psycho-educational workshops and seminars on various topics relating to mental wellbeing 

I work on many community initiatives in the hopes to reduce stigma around mental health, and reduce barriers in accessing mental health supports

Teaching

I am a firm believer in lifelong learning as it provides us with opportunities to adapt, be curious and grow (personally and as professionals).  I advocate for culturally responsive approaches which respect diversity in all aspects, and to create a classroom space where students feel empowered to make inquiries, learn, problem solve, and are actively engaged.  Be active participants in your lives.
