Welcome to BALANCE
Psychology & Brain Health

Utilizing a biopsychosocial model, we specialize in the assessment, prevention, and treatment of factors that can negatively affect your brain health. This includes keeping in mind the biological (e.g. genetics, neurochemistry, medical conditions), psychological (e.g. mood, personality, coping skills), and socio-environmental factors (e.g. culture, social support, education) that individually and collectively impact our well-being. 

 

Healthy aging is multifaceted. Let our team help you create the Balance that you need in your life.

Assessment

Cognitive assessments are individually tailored to identify behavioural, emotional, and cognitive concerns that are related to your brain health. They help to identify how your brain is working in relation to your ability to do things and whether some factor or condition is impacting your health. The purpose of an assessment can vary greatly, including providing diagnostic clarification, identifying strengths and weaknesses, describing change over time, and guiding treatment recommendations.

“If the human brain were so simple that we could understand it, we would be so simple that we couldn't."

- Emerson M. Pugh

“You don’t stop laughing when you grow old, you grow old when you stop laughing.”

- George Bernard Shaw

Prevention

The prevention of illness begins with evidence-informed education and skill-building to assist you in optimizing factors that support healthy aging (e.g. mental health, sleep, exercise, diet, stress management, etc.). Many risk factors for disease and worsening health are “modifiable,” meaning that we can proactively take action to promote healthy aging. This includes strengthening your coping skills, promoting health-focused and goal-oriented behaviours, and addressing any stressors that may be creating challenges in your life.

Treatment

Individualized treatment is designed to address your unique needs and goals and the challenges or barriers that may be interfering with your best self and ability to live in accordance with your values. We can help if you are having difficulty managing anxiety or depression, experiencing sleep problems or cognitive concerns, or suffering from an illness or injury that makes it difficult to manage pain, overcome a disability or return to work. Our team of Calgary psychologists and brain health specialists is here to help you work through these concerns using neuropsychological treatment, cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness-based stress reduction, and other methods based on your needs.

"The brain has the amazing ability to reorganize throughout life, changing its structure and function through thinking alone.”

- Dr. Caroline Leaf

Our team can provide virtual care services (online or over the phone) to people across Alberta who have concerns about their physical, emotional, or cognitive health.
