The original Shift located on trendy 124th Street in the community of Westmount. Shift has truly become part of the community here in a way that goes beyond our Edmonton Counsellors. Shift has become woven into the fabric of the community with many thousands of sessions over almost five years. Initially a small boutique psychology practice, Shift has grown into three locations across Alberta and counting.
I think what I like most about Shift is how personable and understanding the psychologists are. You are a person, not just a diagnosis to be solved. They help you and your support network understand what and why your brain is doing whatever it is and create a safe place to build you back up. They are warm and caring. They don't get annoyed if you miss or need to reschedule an appointent and having the ability to have call in sessions is great for hectic days. The receptionists are so cool and efficient. If I need to reschedule, I'll usually get a confirmation email before I've hung up. I'm incredibly grateful for Shift and their up to date, normalizing take on psychology.read more

Very fun, youthful and inviting place. I did ask about sliding scale though a couple of times and it was never arranged. Still a very helpful experience though overall! Liked that they offered evening sessions.read more

I have engaged various modalities over the years to deal with my limiting beliefs and beliefs that do not serve me. The work I did with Andrea at Shift was impactful and most importantly: it stuck for the long term.read more

I’ve been to psychologists before but I never really felt like I got anywhere or like there was point. I started seeing Olga in early February and have been fully committed to continuing my sessions with her since. The way each session progresses you know and can see that she devises a plan. I now see the value in seeing a psychologist and am so excited to continue on this journey ! Thank you.read more
"It’s a neighbourhood displaying the best of both worlds — a trendy shopping area courtesy of 124th Street and quiet, tree-lined streets with heritage homes that are full of character. The trees and homes have been around for decades, but 124th Street keeps the area current, drawing people from all parts of the city into the unique shops, cafes and restaurants that flourish in the area. On one side, it’s bordered by the river valley, while well-kept homes and yards lead you up to 111th Avenue — it’s like a throwback to old neighbourhoods that were full of charm and easily traversed by foot."
