Most likely, if you find yourself on this page, you have a child or adolescent who is experiencing a problem in some aspect of their academic and/or home life. Having a child who struggles with learning can feel overwhelming. Learning difficulties can impact self-esteem, peer relationships, feelings about school, and family dynamics. It can be a stressful and isolating experience for many families. But it doesn’t have to be. With accurate identification, effective intervention, and support from a caring professional, you can feel empowered to help your child to achieve success. This is the reason I started Bloom Psychology. Although I adore working with children, the most satisfying part of my job relates to the connections that I forge with parents and caregivers. It is my privilege to join families on their journey and to support them as they acquire the knowledge, skills, and tools needed in order to face this challenge with confidence. Every child deserves to bloom and thrive in their environment. Let Bloom Psychology help you get there.
My name is Jennifer Rokosh, and I am a registered Psychologist practicing in Calgary, Alberta. Having worked for over 12 years in the public-school system in Alberta, I have gained extensive knowledge of the developmental issues affecting children aged from 5 years through to young adulthood. I am experienced with assessment, diagnosis, and intervention planning for children and adolescents with a variety of needs including learning disorders (i.e., dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia), intellectual disabilities, giftedness, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), language disorders, as well as social-emotional concerns including mood and anxiety disorders. I provide intervention for ADHD and executive functioning challenges, and intervention for children with reading difficulties, including dyslexia.
When I am not working, I love to putter around my vegetable garden, explore the mountains, cook, read, and spend time with my husband, our two amazing kids, and our trusty dog, Neko.
I take a comprehensive, collaborative, and strength-based approach to my work with children, and I am committed to providing the highest standard of psychological services that draws from evidence-based practices. I endeavor to have a warm, respectful, and collaborative relationship with clients, their families, and allied professionals. I also want, more than anything, for our work together to lead to your child feeling confident and being successful.
As a parent of two young children, I understand the complexities of parenting. I am honored to collaborate with families in the interest of supporting children and young people in achieving their potential and finding their pathways to success.
I received my Master of Science in School and Applied Child Psychology from the University of Calgary, and am registered with the College of Alberta Psychologists, as well as a member of the Psychologists’ Association of Alberta. Additionally, I am a certified Associate with the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators.
