Megan’s ideal client is a child, adolescent , partners, or parent(s) seeking understanding, meaning, and healing in their life and in their relationships. Often, these are clients that have already begun their journey; they’ve read books, taken quizzes, or have completed a workbook and yet, it’s still not working. The ideal client is ready to try something different to reach their potential. Honoring our humanity and the world we live in, I utilize an umbrella approach that begins with a Trauma-Informed and Attachment Lens. Under the umbrella, are approaches used to meet the client where they are at and enable new skills to develop.

Immediate Opening w/ Other Provider At Clinic (child, teen , young adult). My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe, accepting, and open environment for clients to explore their thoughts and emotions without judgement. I seek to understand each individual's goals for therapy, and help them to build upon their skills and knowledge to achieve a state of healing and growth. Life presents us with a number of challenges, and I view the therapeutic relationship as powerful alliance in assisting clients in navigating through these transitions. I enjoy working with adolescents and adults, and I provide both individual and couples therapy.

Are you (or your family) stuck? Have you been trying the same things over and over and nothing is changing? Time to try a more direct approach! I can help. My work with clients is rooted in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). DBT is not for the faint-hearted! It is direct, evidence-based and it works. DBT has been proven useful in treating mood disorders, suicidal ideation, and for change in behavioral patterns such as self-harm, and substance abuse. At Minnetonka Counseling I lead adolescent and family DBT groups, adult DBT groups as well as advance DBT workshops for DBT graduates.

Whether you are a parent looking for a therapist to help your teenager or a new mother to a beautiful baby, learning how to manage our moods is no easy task. Together, I will help you understand what's going on, why you feel so anxious, down, or moody all the time and offer a collaborative and goal-oriented approach to help improve your mood and ultimately, your life.

I can strike a balance between my one-on-one work with the teen by coaching and addressing issues with parents.
Research and experience tells us that effective therapy is predicated on a truly meaningful relationship between client and therapist. I am confident that I can provide a time and space where you and/or your child will feel understood, accepted, cared for, and appropriately challenged to change. I work primarily with adolescents and young adults who are struggling with issues such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, grief and loss, divorce, separated and blended families, life transitions, sexual health and sexual identity, alcohol and chemical abuse issues, conflicted family relationships, attachment issues, and emotion and behavior management.

Whether you're faced with relationship concerns or individual issues, I will help you work through them. I believe you have the answers within you and my role is to help you tap into them. You know yourself best but sometimes it's hard to sort through problems, especially when they're causing stress or depression. Try a first session and see the benefit. If I'm not the best fit for you, that's ok. Sometimes you have to try more than one person. Therapy should be a safe place and that is what I would want for you!

Are you using unhealthy coping mechanisms to deal with your anxiety and/or depression? Increasingly, the pressures of life, complicated relationships, traumatic events which are or feel beyond our control are leading us to problematic emotional states. Frequently, negative emotions such as shame, anger or hatred, or envy and jealousy, link to negative self-talk, dictating our feelings, thoughts and actions. I find it is usually helpful to apply a holistic approach, working with the mind/body connection which counsels attention to the present moment rather than dwelling in the past or obsessing about the future.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence.
