Tomasz Rapacki, MC., Registered Psychologist
"I work daily with people from all walks of life, from different cultures, religions, and ethnicities. As a specialist in individual strengths and culture, my approach is calming, caring, insightful, and creative. I am trained to discuss topics that some psychologists don't have the comfort or cultural knowledge to address. Empowerment is also a priority, as I believe bringing out our abilities and talents can help to overcome problems in our lives."
Psychologist Tom Rapacki is a published author, speaker, and guest lecturer on approaches to uncover cultural and personal strengths. He specializes in anxiety, culture, trauma, and depression, and has helped hundreds of clients since he first started as a student counsellor in 2012. Tom obtained his Master's degree from the University of Lethbridge, and is a registered psychologist in the area of Clinical/Counselling Psychology.
Tom draws upon proven therapeutic approaches, including CBT, Solution-Focused Therapy, acceptance, and mindfulness. In addition, he is also the only psychologist in Canada offering an evidence-based, culturally-adapted depression therapy for Asian-Canadians (available in English & Mandarin). This innovative new treatment was associated with better outcomes than ordinary therapy in early (RCT) treatment effectiveness research.
In addition to running Cultured Psychology Services, Tom works as a mental health provider for immigrants and refugees, and has also served as a core provider of PTSD treatment for Central Alberta.
