Kendal Toll, M.Sc., Registered Psychologist
In high school, I enthusiastically signed up for Psychology 20 and have not looked back since. I eagerly ventured into my undergraduate degree at the University of Alberta where I learned how diverse the field of psychology truly is. I investigated various areas through research experiences evaluating dyslexia, perceptions of information and communications technology, critical appraisal skills, and the effects of stress on undergraduate students. One thing was certain, I wanted to work with and help people. This led me to the University of Calgary where I completed a MSc in School & Applied Child Psychology. During this program, I was introduced to the world of psychological assessment and my interest truly blossomed.
I have been fortunate to have worked in a variety of different settings, including school districts, federal penitentiaries, and with high-risk youth in residential treatment and day programs. I specialize in psychological and psychoeducational assessments with school age children, adolescents, and adults. In addition to these assessments, I complete testing for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, Autism, and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. Through these assessments, I feel privileged to help facilitate a better understanding of an individual’s unique strengths and to provide recommendations which may assist them at home, in the community, and/or at school.
Personally, I’m a wife and mother. When not in the office, you can usually find me travelling with my family and friends, enjoying all things Paw Patrol with my son, or running.
