Ashleigh Yule, MA
Hi! My name is Ashleigh Yule and I am a registered psychologist specializing in child and adolescent mental health. I provide counselling, assessment, and consultation services for children, adolescents, and their families. I also provide professional development around general mental health and specific challenges of childhood and adolescence (e.g., anxiety, depression, behaviour, autism spectrum, gender creativity, and LGBTQ+ issues).
I have a Master’s degree in School and Applied Child Psychology from McGill University and I am currently completing my PhD in School and Applied Child Psychology at the University of Calgary, where I am a member of the Autism Spectrum Education, Research, and Training (ASERT) group. I am a member of a number of psychological associations, including the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA), the Canadian Association of School Psychologists (CASP), and the Psychologists’ Association of Alberta (PAA).
I am also a member of the Canadian Professional Association for Transgender Health (CPATH) and the Trans Equality Society of Alberta (TESA), and I have specific training to work with LGBTQ+ youth and their families. I volunteer with a number of community organizations geared at fostering resiliency and empowering youth, including Camp fYrefly, and Skipping Stone Foundation, and the Canadian Mental Health Association. My research interests include fostering safe and inclusive school environments for LGBTQ+ students, enhancing social supports for children and teens, and deepening our understanding of gender diversity in the autism spectrum.
