Welcome! Thank you for your interest in our services.

 Who we are

  • A low-cost, outpatient mental health program serving the greater Calgary area.
  • We also offer state-of-the-art training to graduate students and are affiliated with the University of Calgary Clinical Psychology Program, which has been accredited by the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) since 1995. 
  • Graduate students in the Clinical Psychology Program provide direct services to clients under the supervision of fully registered, doctoral-level clinical psychologists — either core faculty in the Clinical Psychology Program or psychologists in the Calgary community.
  • Our supervisors are dedicated professionals committed to excellence and innovation in service delivery and training.

Our aims

We aim to provide affordable outpatient psychotherapy and assessment services to the Calgary community. Our services are based on the latest scientific research and reflect the highest professional standards of care. All services are confidential and meet the College of Alberta Psychologists Standards of Practice.

Our professional staff also aim to provide excellence in training the next generation of clinical psychologists and to contribute research that helps to advance mental health services. As such, we are invested in continually evaluating our services to optimize care.

Who we serve and what we offer

We provide assessment and psychotherapy services to children, adolescents, and adults struggling with a range of issues, including emotional disturbances (e.g., depression, anxiety), effects of trauma, relational problems, life transitions, stress management, insomnia, difficulties with behavioural change, and identity issues.

We are open to referrals for individual, group, couple, and family therapy. However, immediate availability of any of these modalities is not guaranteed. Therapy services are time-limited, and generally between 10-20 sessions.

As we are a training clinic and tend to offer short-term interventions, we are not able to accept referrals that may require a specialized service or more intensive intervention than we can provide. We are unable to accept referrals that include any of the following features:

  • High suicidality
  • Elevated levels of crisis requiring urgent intervention
  • Active, untreated substance use problems
  • Involvement in litigation
  • Current mania
  • Psychosis

We embrace diversity in all its forms, for example, along dimensions of age, race, culture, national origin, religion, sexuality, gender identity, and family composition.


Psychotherapy fees are determined using a sliding scale fee structure based on total household income. We do not want cost to be a deterrent to anyone receiving mental health services and therefore may be able to accommodate requests for lower fees.

Fees for assessment services will be posted when we begin to offer these services.
