Assessment Therapy Consultation
At Atlas Psychology we provide psychological assessment and treatment for adults for a variety of issues including anxiety and mood disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), return-to-work obstacles, chronic pain, and numerous other adjustment and lifestyle challenges. Services also include anger management training, social skills building, and consultation for parenting skills enhancement.
We are located at 865 Henderson Hwy in the Fort Group building. You can park in the lot in front of the building and enter through the front doors. Reception is to your left. Please check in with reception, make yourself comfortable, and we will come to meet you at your appointment time.

In following with the most recent guidance provided by the Psychological Association of Manitoba, our COVID policy is as follows:
Masking is now optional. Your therapist is happy to mask or not mask, according to your preference. Please remember that we are in a mixed-use building, and masking is no longer mandatory anywhere in the building.
If you test positive for COVID, have had a recent COVID exposure, or have active respiratory symptoms, we request that you attend your session virtually. We are happy to provide video and phone sessions if you are not able to attend an appointment in person. Should your therapist become ill with these symptoms they will also offer to conduct sessions remotely.
Please provide two business days' notice to cancel a session without incurring a fee.
Missed sessions, or sessions cancelled with less than two business days’ notice, must be paid in full by you, regardless of the reason (emergency, bad weather, sickness, etc.). Business days are defined as Monday through Friday. Holidays and weekends are not business days.
As an example, a 4pm Monday session must be cancelled by 4pm on Thursday of the week prior. The Monday of a long weekend is not a business day, thus, a 4pm Tuesday appointment following a long weekend must also be cancelled by 4pm on Thursday of the week prior. Missed appointments are recorded as “missed appointments” on receipts for extended medical insurance plans.
We are happy to offer remote sessions (phone or video) to assist you in navigating unforeseen problems, like sickness, that might prevent you from attending an in-person appointment. Please let our therapist know at your earliest convenience if you need to switch from an in-person to a remote session so that they can ensure that you are set up for the right type of appointment.
Please contact our office for our current fees. Fees are subject to change without notice.
Fees are paid at the time of your session. Credit cards, e-transfer, cash, or cheque are all accepted. We do not accept debit card payments.
We require a valid credit card number on file, or pre-payment by e-transfer or cash to confirm your appointment booking.
Manitoba Health does not cover private practice psychology fees. If you have an extended health care plan, those benefits may cover our fees. Clients are responsible for determining whether or not their extended health care benefits will reimburse our fees. We provide receipts for our services, which can be submitted to your health care benefits provider for reimbursement. Fees not covered by your extended benefits plan may be considered tax-deductible medical expenses.
We do not typically offer direct billing to insurance providers.
