When you're feeling lost or struggling to cope, a psychologist near you can provide the support and guidance you need to get through tough times. At Pinnacle Psych, we can help you understand your thoughts and feelings and make positive changes in your life.
It depends on the severity of your issue, how long you've been dealing with it, and how well you respond to therapy. If you're dealing with a relatively minor issue, a few sessions may be all you need. If you've been dealing with something for a long time, or if it's a more severe issue, you may need more sessions. The important thing is to stay focused and committed to the process and to work with your therapist in Calgary to figure out what's best for you.

The counsellor's role as a family therapist is to support and guide families experiencing difficulties. The counselor helps families identify and resolve issues causing tension and conflict. The counselor also works with families to develop healthy communication and problem-solving skills.
Cognitive behavioral therapists (CBT) work with people to help them understand and change their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. CBT can be used to treat a wide range of mental health problems, including anxiety and depression.
A psycho-educational assessment is an evaluation conducted by a professional such as a psychologist in Calgary to determine if an individual has any learning disabilities or other psychological issues that could interfere with their ability to function in school or other aspects of their life.
At Pinnacle Psych, we get how cruel and frustrating it can be when someone finally has the courage and opportunity to genuinely ask for help…only to be told to wait 2-12 months for someone qualified to even look at it. Not cool. Not fair. Not ethical. Not effective. Even a couple of weeks is inadequate response time. You need help when you need help, and you need someone to meet you at and in that moment. This is why, at Pinnacle Psych, we offer same-day triage. We will get a sense of what’s going on, and how we can help in the most effective and timely way possible. How’s that for responsiveness!
