Harvey Brink attended the University of Alberta where he obtained a B.A. in Psychology, and an Alberta Teaching Diploma, after which he taught special education classes for two years.  He then returned to the U. of A. for 4 years and obtained a Master's Degree in counselling/clinical psychology and completed his Ph.D coursework requirements in counselling/clinical psychology, but did not complete his doctoral dissertation because of family and work priorities. Harvey has practiced as a psychologist for over 40 years and is a member of the College of Alberta Psychologists, the Psychologists Association of Alberta (Life Member), and the Canadian Psychological Association, the Register of Health Service Providers in Psychology. He is a Fellow of the Canadian Society of Clinical Hypnosis - Alberta Division.  Mr. Brink is an active volunteer with several local organizations. He  served as a part-time psychology instructor at Grant McEwan Community College for two terms and was a tutored  Psychology 411 (Introduction to Counselling) for Athabasca University for 11 years. Over the years, Harvey has served in several roles with the College of Alberta Psychologists where he is currently on the Publications Committee. His passion has always been in private practice, and his business (Pathways Psychological and Educational Services, Inc.), has thrived for many years thanks, primarily, to word-of mouth referrals.
