Allison McDiarmid


Child & Family Counsellor and Art Therapist with a private practice in Calgary, Alberta


Hello, and welcome to Luminescence Creative Counselling, a space for reflection, exploration and to nourish your inner light – your luminescence!

Parenting can be challenging and difficult to navigate at times, and may leave you and your family feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, stuck or disconnected from what is meaningful to you in your life. During difficult times, children (and their caregivers!) sometimes need a little extra encouragement and support to work through the challenges.

I am a Family Counsellor & Art Therapist with over 15 years of specializing in therapy for children, teens and families.  I am here to meet you and your family where you are, to walk alongside you and together illuminate a path forward.
