I use a strength-based approach to working with children , adults, couples, and families.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist with over 30 years of experience. I have written, presented, and consulted extensively about diversity, developmental psychology, multiculturalism, severe psychopathology, childhood abuse, trauma, sexual assault, community/domestic violence and African-American mental health. I believe everyone has a right to wellness and use strategies that promote humor, hard work, experiential learning and resilience. There is a saying: "You do not have to teach a cut how to heal, you just have to create the best environment for healing to take place." My goal is to create a loving space for healing to take place.

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?!

I believe that the ideal client is an individual who is motivated towards working towards improving their mood, situation, or life in the goals they choose. As a marriage and family therapist, I believe I'm best suited for working with couples and families. However, a significant amount of my nearly fourteen years of clinical experience has been working children and adolescents. I also enjoy working with those who are oppositional, anxious, depressed, have experienced trauma, are seeking parenting skills, or are looking for emotional management and coping strategies.

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'm here to be a supportive, thoughtful and empathetic voice in your ear to counter this. I have experience supporting individuals age 9 through adulthood, as well as their families, take the steps to build a more fulfilling life.

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 or 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.

I have experience with children , adolescents, families, and couples in residential, in-home, and outpatient settings.
Sometimes, we get stuck in problem-saturated stories. I see challenges from the perspective of a narrative. We tend to see our world in story form with themes and plots. Sometimes these become troublesome and not the story that we want to tell about ourselves, our marriages, and our families. Sometimes, these stories can lead us to believe that we are not good enough people, parents, or spouses which can cause depression, anxiety, marital and parenting issues. I believe that people have power over these stories and I help to uncover newfound strengths and resources through conversation and experiential interventions.

As a spouse and parent of three children I know that relationships are both wonderful and hard work! Managing demands of work, parenting and maintaining a relationship with a spouse are difficult.
Feel like things aren't going well at home, work or school, but not sure why? Your relationship(s) aren't working? The trust disappeared from your marriage? Your Teenager/Tween overwhelmed and you're not sure how to help? Have they turned to drugs/alcohol/video gaming? Making unsafe choices for themselves or others, or they lash out with anger? Do they lack motivation? A young adult attempting to launch or parent trying to help them launch and finding it difficult? We'll find out what's going on and then make a plan to move forward towards wellness.

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.
