Stephanie Mang, Registered Psychologist

Hello and welcome! I am so glad you found us. Please allow me to tell you a little bit about myself…

My name is Stephanie Mang. I was born and raised in the Bonnyville area. I left for a period of time then returned a few years ago to be able to raise our children with family nearby. 

My passion has always been to help people and I found counselling to be the perfect place to do just that! I have been practicing as a Registered Psychologist since 2012. In January 2019, I decided to branch out on my own and founded TLC Counselling. My goal is to give clients a safe, nonjudgmental environment that allows them the ability to explore their mental health and wellness. 

Over the years, I have worked with individuals through many different phases of life from everyday struggles to mental illnesses such as depression or anxiety. I approach therapy through multiple psychological modalities including: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical-Behavioural Informed Therapy, Emotional-Focused Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Psychoeducation. Depending on a client’s goals for therapy, I will tailor my approach to provide them with the necessary skills to obtain those goals. Furthermore, I am willing to incorporate faith-based aspects into therapy as requested (rest assured, I believe faith is a personal choice and will not push my personal beliefs upon any client).

Seeking therapy can be daunting task. I recognize it is important that you find a therapist that you can connect with. Please feel free to have a look around our website and if you have any additional questions do not hesitate to reach out.

Samantha Hesterman, Certified Counsellor

Hi! My name is Samantha Hesterman. I was born and raised in Ormiston, Saskatchewan. After high school I moved to Fairbanks, Alaska where I attended the University of Alaska.  After graduating I moved to Alberta to be with my family. I have been living in the Bonnyville area for 4.5 years, it’s where I plan to stay and call home.

I have been providing mental health support and counselling services for over 4 years. I pride myself in providing clients with up to date research and evidence-based practices. I hold a few different registrations such as being a Professional Member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association, Registered Social Worker of Alberta & Saskatchewan, as well as being conditionally approved by the College of Alberta Psychologists.

I enjoy working with a variety of clients from kids and teens to older adults. Some therapy modalities I use include: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Existential Therapy, Psychoeducation, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Trauma Informed Care, Motivation and Solution-Focused Therapy. These can be used to best help address mental health concerns. Examples of mental health concerns can range from anxiety, depression, bipolar, grief & loss, and trauma. Examples of educational topics can include maintaining health relationships, setting boundaries, effective communication, self-regulation, mindfulness, and grounding.

My goal is to provide a safe and empathic environment where clients feel comfortable and supported.  Being vulnerable to explore and challenge uncomfortable thoughts takes strength and courage. 

I look forward to continue supporting the Lakeland area!

Please note emails are typically replied to within 48 hours. If you have not received a response, check your spam/junk mail folder.  

First appointments are your opportunity to tell your story. We will ask you a variety of questions, both past and present, about things like symptoms, childhood experiences, support systems, etc. This allows us to gain an idea of what your struggles are and formulate a diagnosis, if required. At the end of your appointment, we typically provide some basic coping skills you can begin to utilize. Then we will discuss treatment options available to you. 

Interactions with our therapists are confidential and will not be released to a third-party without signed consent by the client. Exceptions to confidentiality include:

• Imminent danger of harm to self and/or others.
• Provincial law requiring a psychologist who learns of, or strongly suspects, physical or sexual abuse or neglect of any person under 18 years of age to report this information to child protection services.
• A court order, issued by a judge, requiring TLC Counselling to release information contained in records and/or to testify in a court hearing.

The rate to see a psychologist or certified counsellor is $220 for a 50-minute session. Rates per session are based on the recommended fee schedule set by the Psychologists Association of Alberta.

It is our belief that everyone deserves affordable, quality mental health services. We know finances are tight for everyone these days, thus our therapists reserve a limited portion of their caseloads to those who are unable to afford the full rate.  These rates vary between $150-$220. There is no need to prove your income and we won’t limit the number of sessions. Please contact the office for more information about our sliding fees and who has availability.

If you are currently seeing one of our therapists and no longer able to afford their full rate, please speak to your therapist and they will determine the best option for you. 

Direct billing is offered in a limited capacity depending on which therapist you are seeing. Please contact the office to determine if your therapist offers direct billing. 

We recommend clients touch base with their insurance to ensure that services are covered under our licensing and to determine if any coverage caps (per/session or annually) are applicable.
