Whether it is you or one of your children you are concerned about, I can help get you started on the path you wish to take.
Deciding to make changes in your life takes courage and motivation. My approach incorporates the latest research in the treatment of a wide range of anxiety, depression and relationship problems. You can expect a straightforward, supportive environment to discuss and implement your treatment goals. While I primarily use cognitive-behavioral approaches, I value the mind-body connection and am open to newer holistic and integrated therapies. I have received specialized training in Exposure/Response Prevention from NOCD. As a psychologist with extensive child, adolescent and adult training and experience I can work with all ages.

I work with adults, adolescents and children in individual, marriage and family therapy.
I've helped many clients work through difficult challenges they're facing and would like to help you too. I have a very straight forward, assertive and somewhat irreverent communication style. We work hard, bravely dig as deep as we need to and have some belly laughs along the way. My clients appreciate how real and raw it can get, they feel free to share the good, bad and the ugly. If you're ready to be a good student I am a good teacher = Let's roll up our sleeves?!

As a marriage and family therapist, I love working with couples and families. However, a significant amount of my nearly fourteen years of clinical experience has been working children, adolescents, and teenagers.

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.

While I also work with teens, I have a special interest in using play therapy to work with children.
Beginning a therapeutic journey can be a stressful and uncomfortable situation. I get it, it is tough to be vulnerable, let alone with someone you don’t know yet! My main priority is to provide a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment in which your child can be vulnerable. The therapy space and therapeutic relationship are established to facilitate the trust required to share tough subjects. Upon establishing a therapeutic relationship, therapy becomes a creative, collaborative experience of us working together to find new ways to heal and grow.

My strengths and experience include working with individuals, children, adolescents, and their families.
Mental health care is a part of chronic healthcare and asking for help can be the hardest place to start. Mental health is a struggle that we all deal with in our own way, sometimes we need guidance and encouragement. I believe a therapist's role is to support individuals in their efforts to cope and adapt on their own. Through the journey of therapy, I want to be someone who can point out patterns that may be hindering you from reaching your fullest potential.

I provide individual therapy to children, adolescents and adults; as well as providing therapy to couples and families.
Understanding that it can be difficult to take this step to wellness, I believe it is important to establish a trusting therapeutic relationship with the client as without this, it can be difficult to help implement change. I also believe that helping clients see their potential to implement change and resolve their issues is very empowering. Each client holds that potential within and they need encouragement and support as they begin to discover this and come to resolutions. Some clients may believe that their issues define who they are and stuggle to separate the two. New confidence can change this.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Plymouth, MN provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Plymouth build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
