Psychology

Good mental health involves identifying and alleviating stressors, as well as creating a satisfying balance in or integration of activities among all areas of your life. Our clinical psychology staff can work with you to identify barriers to your optimal mental health and help you achieve a greater overall sense of well-being. You will learn the connection between your thoughts, feelings and behaviours and how to manage everyday stressors in new and more effective ways. We offer psychological services designed to enhance well-being for adults and adolescents in various phases of life.

You may access psychological services at the Cleveland Clinic Canada through:
