Edmonton, AB – The rise in specialization among health care professionals extends to the field of mental health as well, with therapists pursuing concentrations in specific mental health issues. As a result, it’s critical to find a therapist that truly understands the complexities of whatever issue a person might be struggling with.
Insight Psychological is a psychological counseling and assessment firm for children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. With 27 therapists across five locations, Insight Psychological employs a multi-specialty team approach to psychology.
“Whatever you need, we have a therapist who specializes in that,” says Cory Hrushka, executive director of Insight Psychological.
Since Hrushka assumed sole ownership of Insight Psychological in 2007, the practice has grown considerably. Last year, the company grew 60 percent, expanding throughout Alberta with locations in Edmonton, Calgary, Red Deer and Spruce Grove.
“We’ve grown way beyond what I imagined,” says Hrushka. “I thought we might open another office one day but now we have five. I don’t know of anyone else in the city of Edmonton that can match what we’ve done.”
At Insight Psychological, each therapist has a unique specialty, allowing the staff to assign the right therapist to the right client. Specialties include but are not limited to trauma, grief, educational psychology including learning disorders, marriage and family counseling, eating disorders, hypnotherapy, Borderline Personality Disorder and even neuropsychology.
“It’s a friendly, connected, family-like atmosphere here,” says Hrushka. “We have a caring and supportive team of strong, ethical psychologists who are also willing to learn from each other. Clients can only benefit from that.”

Wayne, NJ – For children who struggle emotionally, behaviorally and socially, traditional methods of therapy are less useful for advancing therapists’ understanding of a child’s issues. In recent years, however, alternative therapies such as art therapy and role-playing games have proven remarkably effective. Sometimes it’s as simple as playing a game, reading a book or finishing a puzzle to help children discover new solutions.
“There are many people who work with children and depend only on what they say,” says Dr. Susan Grossbard, “but observing which toys they choose or where they place themselves in the room, for instance, provides me with vital information for how to work with the child.”
A long-time special education teacher and a school psychologist, Dr. Grossbard is the founder of Psychological Solutions, a private practice specializing in children, adolescents and their families.
“I do heads, not meds,” says Dr. Grossbard. “I have a lot of faith in children. When given the chance I believe they can figure it out.
According to Dr. Grossbard, children don’t process information in quite the same way as adults. For children who can’t express themselves verbally, Dr. Grossbard’s playroom helps her interact with the child to develop the necessary trust to begin to figure out what issue the child is struggling with and how best to treat it.
“I have a great deal of respect for children who experience difficulty expressing themselves,” says Dr. Grossbard. “I’ve always been able to reach the unreachable. Even if you don’t know how to express yourself, we can figure it out together.”

Let's talk emotional health. Now more than ever, Americans face regular emotional assaults stemming from stresses at work, financial pressures, and relationship or home life problems. The accumulation of these psychological injuries can interfere with our functioning and cause long term emotional harm, but can we do anything about them?
Ask a friend or family member:
•What should we do to ease the sharp pain of rejection?
•How do we stop the devastating ache of loneliness or the bitter disappointment of failure?
•How should we recover from low self- esteem or loss and trauma?
•How do we deal with intrusive ruminations or nagging guilt?
Every household has a medicine cabinet of bandages, ointments and painkillers we use to treat the physical injuries we sustain in daily life. Psychological damages such as failure, rejection, or loneliness occur at least as frequently as do physical ones, but we don’t know how to treat them so the wounds don’t heal. For example, experiencing failure can lead to crippling test anxiety, rejections can damage our self-esteem, and loneliness can take years off our life expectancy if we can’t find a remedy.
