Daniel McMillan, M.Ed., Registered Psychologist

Owner / Psychologist

Daniel is not accepting new clients at this time. Please consider one of our other talented therapists.

I have been blessed to have been able to work as a counsellor/therapist since 2005 in various professional settings including health care/government, private firms, non-profit, schools and my own private practice.

For over 15+ years I’ve worked to help people achieve their goals of health and happiness and would love to connect with you also to help you achieve your goals and find some peace. I strongly believe in practicing from the values that I see create healing in my clients. These include truly looking at what matters in people’s lives; understanding that all people want to be happy and at peace deep down; that no-one gets through this life unscathed and hurt occurs in many different ways; and understanding that people respond to these injuries as best they can but often these ways become cemented later in life, hurting them again.

I, like all of us, strive to find happiness and health in my life as best I can. For me this means a balance of work, time with family, pursuing my interests, and growing as a person.

My passions are time spent with my family, being outdoors, snowboarding, hiking, traveling, playing sports, time with friends, walks, and going to movies when I can. While my office is located in Calgary, I live in Cochrane and am the proud father of two wonderful children. I strive to grow and learn continuously in my work, as I believe it makes me a better person, partner, and father.
This is one of the reasons I am so passionate about couples and individual growth.

I am particularly experienced with mental health concerns (including depression and anxiety), family of origin issues, and self-growth. I am passionate about couples counselling and trauma and have extensive training in these areas as well. Most of my work has occurred in the Calgary area of Alberta but I have also worked in Cochrane, Canmore, Athabasca and Ponoka, Alberta in various counselling and psychological roles over the years. I pride myself on having a well-rounded and in-depth skill set that allows me to understand, guide and support my clientele.
