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 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 focus on the unique challenges of those in high-pressure careers. The intensity of these jobs often leads to relationship problems, anxiety about performance, stress, exhaustion, and burnout, resulting in a shrinking support network and frustrated partners. That’s why I also focus on the families of such individuals.

When I reflect on my education, professional, personal experience and distill my thoughts; I conclude *You are feeling pretty bad or you would not be making this search. *You want some part or several parts of your life to work better. *What used to work or what you do to improve things is not helping or not helping fast enough.* People change many areas and elements of their life when they figure out what needs attention, what to do, and how.* People are embarrassed to make this first call for information but also know - It Is Time to Do Something.
