I am trained to help those with a variety of life problems including; depression, anxiety, grief, loss and separation, self-esteem issues, family, parenting and/or relationship issues, physical and sexual abuse, anger management and substance use issues.
By combining a back-ground in nursing, psychology and social work, my goal is to help individuals achieve a greater sense of physical, emotional and spiritual well being. I provide a safe and supportive environment for individuals and couples who want to explore issues that may be contributing to their feelings of being stuck or dissatisfied with their way of being. I view the therapy process as a joint venture between myself and the client. I believe that every individual has the capacity to answer their own questions by drawing from their own inner wisdom.

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.

I counsel individuals, families and couples in private practice and facilitate parent education classes and grief and loss support groups.
I consider it a privilege to hear your story and to collaborate with you to identify and encourage possible steps toward a more peaceful and satisfying life and relationships. My past experience with children and families in churches, in culturally diverse schools, and in supervised court-ordered visits between nonresidential parents and their children has equipped me to help children and parents with behavioral issues, resulting individual or marital stress, and issues of loss -- death, divorce, disasters and disappointment.

Struggling with life-satisfaction or relationships that leave you stressed, angry, anxious, or depressed? I intimately understand the mental and emotional gymnastics of self-guided solutions which may be an emotional rollercoaster. Are parenting responsibilities or dealing with someone's ADHD characteristics a confusing process? I have successfully worked with children with ADD/ADHD utilizing a patented neurofeedback technology which works to increase focus, reduce distracting behaviors, and susceptibility to audio and visual distractions.

relationships, etc - and their underlying traumas, as well as consent and parenting issues.
I can help you. We all face moments where life breaks down. Where what we’ve always done no longer works, and we wake up tired, anxious, hurt, angry, numb. [Sometimes we suffer or despair. Sometimes we are just confused.] Or maybe you know that who you’ve been being isn’t who you are, & it’s frustrating because you can’t quite figure out how to just be yourself. As a result our relationships are impacted - we hurt or disappoint those we care about, even though we’re not trying to. We get burned out or stuck at work -no longer moving forward towards the life we dreamed. Relationships with family or partners change in unexpected ways

We all go through periods of time in our lives when we could use a helping hand. Many different circumstances exist that can cause us to struggle: stress, life transitions, parenting , relational challenges, unresolved issues from the past, etc. Counseling can be a great place to find support and get help with figuring out what changes you want to make and how to go about them. I enjoy building supportive relationships with my clients and helping them to navigate life’s challenges. I have a particular passion for work involving parenting challenges and the parent -child relationship.

Do you feel disconnected from your partner? Do you feel like you have tried everything to make your marriage better and you are ready to give up? Do you feel hopeless? I want to help you to begin to heal your relationships and your life. We all go through times when life feels hard and painful. Therapy is a great way to begin to have the life we know we deserve and have less stress and anxiety. We don't spend time learning how to be a good partner, parent , sibling, or child but we beat ourselves up when those relationships aren't perfect.

My extensive experience comes from working with individuals in acute crisis, cumulative trauma, adoption issues, anger management, serious and persistent mental illness, Dual Diagnosis, and parenting issues facing parents of adult children.
How many therapists did your parents have you see as a kid? Has anybody in your life commented on your "adoption issues"? How many times a day do you ask yourself where and how do I fit in? Maybe the mindset you used to help yourself survive childhood is now hindering your growth in adulthood. Why aren't there more therapists who are adoptees? These are some of many questions and issues I hope that we can work on together. I aspire, because I am an adoptee, to have you spend less time explaining what adoption was, and more time working on current issues.

My experience is in working with emotional dysregulation, anxiety, depression, selective mutism, trauma, oppositional behaviors, family change, loss and grief, parenting skills, adoption issues, spiritual awakening & trauma.
I believe all clients hold the key to their own success and can be guided to that end in a safe, trusting, honest environment. Building relationship and skills for growth, understanding and healing are among my goals in therapy. My personal journey through adoption, trauma, abuse, raising a child with mental health concerns, spiritual enlightenment, natural mental health, divorce, and remarriage have become the gifts I share though therapy. I believe the keys essential to reaching any goal lies within each of us believing in ourselves and knowing that someone also believes in us.

With couples and families, I have assisted in working through infidelity, infertility, co- parenting , divorce, etc.
Marriage and Family Therapists view problems in the framework of how people interact or communicate with each other. I see each client as a unique individual embarking on a journey to explore alternatives choices in their current life. I don't believe people are "broken" or need to be "fixed." I do believe everyone has a right to be heard and that you are the expert in your own lived experiences. Negative events can lead to unexpected plot twists that cause emotional distress, but every human struggle makes your story more authentic. Therapy can help you find new beginnings and explore endings to achieve personal satisfaction.

Your moods are out of control. At times, you don't even feel like yourself and the things you've tried to help you cope up to this point either don't help enough or don't help for too long. People you love start to annoy you...and then they feel hurt in return. 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.

Parenting Therapists
In a rapidly changing world, parenting can be subject to fads and changing styles, and parenting in some privileged circles has become a competitive sport. But the needs of child development as delineated by science remain relatively stable: safety, structure, support, and love.
