Dr. K. Ryan Wilson
Get to Know Me
I am a registered psychologist in Halifax, NS working in private practice as part of the Inspired Living Medical team.
I completed my PhD in Clinical Psychology at Dalhousie University. When I began my training, my clinical and research interests focused in Neuropsychology - assessing and treating attention, memory and decision making difficulties that are often a result of brain injuries such as stroke, head trauma, or diseases such as Alzheimer's.
I was always struck by how much people's thinking abilities were affected by their emotional state. I looked for opportunities learn how emotions and thinking abilities interact. As a result I spent several years working in the Center for Emotions and Health and the Medically Unexplained Symptoms Clinic at the Halifax Infirmary. It was in this setting that my passion for talk therapy took hold, and I have developed expertise in a wide range of therapy models to help treat thinking, feeling, and physical symptoms experienced by teens and adults.
I have come to believe that our most difficult and most important journey is the one one that requires us to look inward so that we can uncover and understand our conscious and unconscious processes. No matter where we start, when we choose to take this journey we give ourselves the chance to be free of our symptoms, get connected with those that matter, and excel personally and professionally.
At the end of the day, the point of therapy is to help you TAKE ACTION NOW!
