Lauren Walker, PhD, RPsych

I love helping couples and individuals enhance their intimate relationships and sexual lives. I'm a therapist, researcher, author, and entrepreneur. I translate science about sexuality in practical ways and am passionate about about reducing stigma about sexuality and mental health.

After obtaining my PhD in Clinical Psychology in in 2013, I completed a specialized clinical fellowship in sexual dysfunction after cancer treatment, receiving mentorship from nationally recognized experts in sexual medicine.  In 2015 I established the Oncology Sexual Health Lab at the University of Calgary and  I currently hold an Adjunct Associate Professorship. In 2019, I was recognized with Calgary's Avenue Magazine's Top 40 Under 40 award for my work developing innovative sexual health programs for cancer patients. I have written over 50 scientific publications on the topic of cancer and sexuality, and I regularly consult to cancer care organizations. 

Though I'm not sure the "perfect balance" really exists, I try to find balance in my career, and in being a wife and mother. I love skiing, golfing, and working out; listening to music; and enjoying time with family and friends.
