About ERO Psychological

Karen Lemke, R. Psych

I am a registered psychologist with over 15 years of experience working in a variety of mental health settings including crisis intervention, federal and provincial corrections, forensic psychiatric rehabilitation, and private practice.

I work with clients from many diverse backgrounds and have a deep respect and appreciation for what makes us different and unique. I strive to offer a friendly, accepting, and non-judgmental space in which to help clients develop the skills they need to cope with life’s challenges, achieve their personal goals, and restore balance to their lives.

I provide individual and group therapy to adults (18+) and have a particular interest in working with clients who want to address issues related to:

  • Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Boundaries
  • Emotional dysregulation
  • Impulsivity
  • Interpersonal difficulties
  • Suicide and/or non-suicidal self-injury
  • Trauma

Why "ERO"?

I spent a lot of time thinking about a name for my practice that would reflect my personality, values, and counselling approach. I created the acronym "ERO" based on the Hungarian word erő, which means strength, power, or force and is an homage to my Hungarian family heritage.

The acronym ERO stands for "Embrace, Resolve, Overcome." Rather than continually fighting against a reality that we don't like, want, or agree with, I believe we must first embrace our current experience in order to resolve and ultimately overcome those elements that are most painful or challenging. In doing so, we gain a greater sense of confidence, self-worth, and inner strength. This philosophy informs the bulk of my work and guides how I support clients in therapy.
