Whether you are looking for help in your relationship, your professional life, your struggle with anxiety, depression, ADHD, or anything else, our clinicians have a wide variety of skills and expertise to assist you in achieving your goals. Counselling services are provided at the Psychologists’ Association of Alberta (PAA) recommended rate of $200/hour. Sliding scale services may be available upon request. Many of our counselling services can be reimbursed through extended health benefits.
If a doctor asked you for a mental health assessment, where would you turn? If a school wanted psychological testing done, whom would you talk to?Psychologists use special tests in psychological assessment to help their clients. At Cultivate, we have psychologists, counsellors, educational consultants, and other health and para-health associates that do just that.
Common psychological assessments:
- mental health screening and assessment (for distinguishing between mental health symptoms and signs, and the corresponding reports and diagnostic findings)
- psychoeducational assessment (for children, youth, and adult students consulting with formal educational environments)
- behavioural health assessment (for screening for behavioural health factors impacting physical and mental health)
Our educational consultants handle everything from adults returning to school and 21st century strategies to help your child succeed in their classroom, to educating educators on a variety of topics such as live action role play to increase pro-social behaviours and the value of gamification in learning environments. We also provide tutoring services for kids who need a bit of extra help or study skills coaching.
Health and Behavioural Health Consulting
Health and behavioural health counselling can help you come to terms with and manage your chronic pain or disease better. Our clinicians will work with your physician or specialist directly to provide continuity of care and strategies for managing your condition in the best possible way.
Group Psychology Services
We often have exciting and interesting groups being run by our talented clinicians. Anxiety and Depression support groups, children’s behavioural groups, ADHD management groups, and relaxation groups that combine psychological techniques and yoga therapy are just some of the opportunities we’ve offered in the past. Check out our events tab for upcoming groups. Rates for group psychology services vary based on the type of program being offered. Sliding scale requests will be considered on an individual basis. Many of our groups can be reimbursed through extended health benefits.
We love to educate! Cultivate provides public education and lectures on a wide variety of topics including introductions to mental health, anxiety and depression, parenting, behavioural health management, and spirituality and mental health. We also provide basic training and lunch and learn opportunities for community organizations and churches to ensure that they are approaching mental health in their communities appropriately and that their volunteers know how to respond to and their legal responsibilities regarding potential disclosures of harmful behaviour.

From creative classroom management skills and gamification of learning to handling holiday stress, we can come up with a lecture that is just right for your organization.
