Calgary counsellor helps veterans and their families

On my blog in tribute to our fallen soldiers in Afghanistan, I received an encouraging comment and, in looking up the person, discovered a woman with an amazing background who dedicates her counselling services to returning Afghanistan vets and their families. A former policewoman, Kelli McMillan of Calgary, has founded her own psychotherapy service, in which she combines conventional and non-traditional treatment methods for veterans, active military personnel, firefighters, policemen, and EMS — in fact any service that places its members in harm’s way and as a result they suffer from depression, anxiety, trauma or PTSD.

Kelli holds a Bachelor of Social Work Degree with Distinction (1997) from the University of Victoria, and a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology (2010) from Yorkville University.  Her thesis was titled “The Assessment and Treatment of Combat Related PTSD and Comorbid Major Depressive Disorder.”  Kelli is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) from the BC Professional School of Psychology and is a registered EMDR therapist with EMDR Canada.  She is also a graduate of The Traumatology Institute of Canada.

Her services, Catapult Solutions, is listed under my blogroll, where you can find her contact information.
