Choice Point Psychological Services 

If the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it’s the importance of prioritizing our mental health. The team behind Choice Point Psychological Services saw how the pandemic affected Calgarians’ mental health and the increased demand for effective and accessible psychological services and responded with the opening of their 17th Ave clinic in early 2021. Their services include individual and group therapy, as well as video sessions and custom workshops in an environment that fosters collaboration between psychologists to ensure all of your needs are met.
