Welcome to Advantage:

a division of the Calgary Psychology Group..

Dr. Barry HollowellIt is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our friend and colleague, Dr. Barry Hollowell. Dr. Hollowell worked with us over the last 3 years, seeing clients, giving presentations, and generally doing all that was asked of him. His quiet and gentle presence will be missed by both his coworkers and his clients.

There are a number of different times when an assessment of emotional or psychoeducational functioning can be helpful.  When dealing with disability issues grounded in stress or difficulties such as depression, when preparing for a significant life change such as an overseas placement, when trying to understand difficulties in the workplace or at school, it can be helpful to have a full evaluation done by a psychologist.
