A Message from Megan

Finding someone to confide in and share your struggles with can be challenging and honestly overwhelming. There are so many providers with so much experience, but can they understand you? More importantly, can they see you without judgment? If you are experiencing psychological pain, frustrations with life, or struggles with connection, these can only make this search more daunting.  In my practice, I empathize with this struggle and make it a point to meet you where you are. I utilize a humanistic perspective with my clients, meaning I believe people are innately good and we all have strengths that help us to navigate life. I also value honesty and integrity, meaning there are no secrets in your care and my conceptualization of your case. It is my job to bear witness to your life, be your partner in navigating the concerns you have, and help you to understand yourself. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy and psychodynamic approaches to help my patients to achieve the goals they have set for themselves. We will dig deep, make connections to other areas of your life, and consider what behaviors and thoughts are helpful in the present moment. For my patients, change begins with how they see their relationships and the world around them. They begin to consider unhealthy survival tactics and consider how to best change them. For me, the most important part of counseling is connection. Therapeutic alliance is the single best indicator of therapeutic outcomes. If I have a patient who does not feel we are a good fit, that’s absolutely okay! It is my job to help this person find the best fit for them, so they can begin improving their life. If you are looking for an authentic person who will utilize creativity, understanding, and compassion to best help you, I may be the right fit for you. The cases I am passionate about include complex trauma and generalized anxiety disorder. My favorite cases include people who are motivated to learn about themselves, are willing to consider different perspectives, are battling anxiety and are striving for inner peace.
