Christine Boyd, MSW, RSW


Christine Boyd is a Registered Social Worker
and a member of the Couples Reconnect team
of relationship-focused therapists in Calgary.

Christine is a Registered Social Worker with the Alberta College of Social Workers. She holds a bachelor’s degree in social work and a master’s degree in social work, both from the University of British Columbia.

In addition to her ample counselling, public speaking, group facilitation, leadership, and skilled trainer expertise, Christine brings to our private practice counselling team over 17 years of professional experience honed in the non-profit and public sectors. She has walked beside a myriad of clients from all walks of life, from children and youth to parents, couples, and families, helping them through a depth and breadth of mental health, behaviour, addictions, parenting, relational, and conflict challenges.

Being the “best you can be” is really only possible when you are deeply connected to another. Splendid isolation is for planets, not people.

How Christine helps couples spark reconnection

Christine has honed her professional expertise on human relationships for almost 20 years and loves using Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy to help couples deepen and repair their connection. Her vast experience in the foster care system has deepened her understanding of connection, grief, and loss, as well as her compassionate mastery in creating therapeutic interventions that support people in moving through these challenges. She cultivates relentless hope and resilience through her continued education and daily meditation practice.

Most importantly, Christine is a profoundly humble and gracious therapist who believes in relationships and couples’ boundless, under-realized potential to heal, attach, and deepen their self-awareness and connection to each other. Connection sparks tremendous possibilities to change and grow in love and Christine can help you get there.
