About Megan

Megan completed her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at Brock University in Ontario and her Masters of Counselling Psychology at the University of Calgary. She is a Registered Provisional Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists and has completed training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Integrative Trauma Treatment, Crisis Desensitization and Addiction Treatment/Prevention.

Areas of Interest and Knowledge

Megan is interested in working with individuals 18 years and older who want to reconnect with their authentic selves and develop a better understanding of their own beliefs, values, and goals. Megan maintains a non-pathologizing, trauma-informed, and strengths-based approach and uses emotionally-focused, body-focused, and narrative-focused therapeutic techniques.

Beliefs and Values

It takes an incredible amount of strength to seek mental health support and Megan strives to create a safe and secure therapeutic relationship for each person she works with. She takes time to learn what helps each person feel safe, valued, and heard. Megan believes in a collaborative approach to therapy and considers each client to be the expert on their own lives. She supports clients to learn about themselves, their relationships, and their own values by encouraging curiosity and compassionate self-exploration.

Megan believes that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to counselling and that mental health struggles are uniquely complex. She supports clients to explore their own circumstances, identify their own areas for change, and to build upon their own strengths and resources.
