Megan McElheran, PsyD, Psychologist in Calgary
In my practice I work with members of the community and first responders who have experienced traumatic events. This involves work with active-duty members of the Canadian Forces, members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, firefighters, medical personnel and others who are directly or vicariously impacted by traumatic events. I also routinely work with members of the community who have endured traumatic events of different kinds. I invite you to watch my TedX talk from 2011 in which I discuss Trauma, Change and Resilience for an introduction to how I think about trauma and its impact.
I employ evidence-based practice in treatment, including Prolonged Exposure, Eye Movement Desensitzation and Reprocessing (EMDR) and most recently have become a certified provider of Accelerated Resolution Therapy. Clients come to see me to focus on processing and working through traumatic events and I provide a safe, structured context in which to complete this work.

Megan McElheran's Groups

Veterans Process Group

In January 2016 we will be launching a weekly process group for Veterans of the military and/or RCMP. This group will provide a structured and safe environment to process experiences from service and to experience a sense of universality with others who have had similar experiences. This goal is appropriate for clients who are new to treatment, or those who have completed trauma-focused work already. The goal will be to deepen understanding of the effects of service and trauma on relationships and on one's sense of self and identity.
