Meagan is amazing. She has helped me in not only my own trauma but iny personal relationships as well. I couldn't recommend her any higher.

My quality of life over the last year of working with Meagan has increased dramatically, and I'm hopeful that I will continue to heal, hone new coping skills and strategies as I change, and grow as a human. I'm grateful for Meagan's expertise, compassion, and care, and I hope to be able to work with her for a long time.

Megan is very understanding of how to deal with teenagers. She has helped me in more ways than I could imagine. She knows how to communicate when I’m in a bad mood but she always reassures me if I’m not comfortable talking about a topic I don’t have to

I felt she was great. It was my first time seeking help and I felt comfortable the whole time. Never was made to feel pressured in talking about anything I didn’t want to talk about. Felt heard throughout the session.

I have participated in virtual counseling in the past, but Meagan seems to really get me even after just a few sessions. She gives me things to think about and different perspectives. She has been phenomenal.
