Psychologist Kelowna

Crossroads Collective in Kelowna is now able to offer Child Assessments.

These diagnostic assessments will help provide insight into your child.  This may result in a diagnosis and/or provide you with some information to further direct your efforts to provide support and tools for your child.

Receiving an official diagnosis from our Registered Psychologist may also lead to additional government funding and/or charity funding that is available in our community.

We are pleased to offer the following assessments in Kelowna:
