I am a registered psychologist working in private practice in Edmonton, AB. In 2016 I completed my Ph.d. in Counselling Psychology at the University of Alberta. During my doctoral studies I researched why adult male survivors of sexual abuse so seldom report their abuse. I now work predominately with adult male survivors, first responders, trauma victims, and individuals and couples who are struggling with issues associated to:


  • Male Survivors of Adult or Childhood Sexual Abuse
  • Bullying and Harassment in the Work Place
  • Childhood Abuse/Neglect (male and female)
  • Trauma/PTSD
  • Issues Associated to Life as a First Responder
  • Stress/Anxiety
  • Grief/Loss
  • Depression
  • Sleep Disruption Due to Nightmares or Chronic Illness
  • Establishing Healthy Sleeping Habits
  • Christian Faith
  • Couples/Relationship Issues





Dr. Kelli Palfy's New Book

Male sexual abuse occurs far more commonly than previously suspected, yet too few victims ever seek support. Countless remain silent, coping through isolation, substance abuse, promiscuity or hypermasculinity.

MEN TOO: UNSPOKEN TRUTHS ABOUT MALE SEXUAL ABUSE is for male survivors and their supporters. It is an educational, heart-wrenching look at 13 male sexual abuse victims experience, written from the perspective of a retired police officer and registered psychologist.

I am a registered psychologist, running a private practice in Edmonton, AB. I offer counselling services to adults (individuals, couples and groups) struggling with issues associated to childhood abuse/neglect, life transitions, harassment in the workplace, chronic illness, anxiety and depression. I completed my doctoral internship at the Cross Cancer Institute where I worked with adults struggling with cancer diagnosis, grief, loss, issues of faith and other major life transitions. I have a strong interest in working with trauma related issues, specifically adult male survivors of sexual abuse; as well as issues associated to grief, loss and bullying and harassment in the workplace.

In 2007 I began pursuing my MA, initially to further my career as a police woman, but God had other plans for me! In 2009, I medically retired from the RCMP with just over 13 years of field experience (Reg #45004, HQ 1112) and began the journey of pursuing my doctorate degree. I have a considerable amount of life experience and exposure, both personal and professional, from which to draw upon during my work with you. What was once my misery is now my ministry.



  Do you lie in bed awake for more than 20 minutes begging for sleep to come? If the answer is yes...get up out of bed and go do something else! Do something fun, but not too emotionally or physically stimulating. Sleep experts tell us that it is better to get out of your bed, than to 'condition' your bed to become a place where you go to fear sleep. Don’t try go back to bed for at least half an hour...This should help you get more sleep in the long run. Having nightmares? I can help....come see me
