Hi! I'm Megan. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) as well as a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and I am here to help you! I bring with me 10 years of counseling experience. I earned my BS from Colorado State University in Human Development and Family Studies in 2003 and I earned my MA in Counseling and Human Services from the University of Colorado in 2005.
I use an integrative approach to Mental Health and Overall Wellness using coaching methods and interventions that encourage the balance of mind, body and soul. I merge mindfulness coaching, life coaching and cognitive behavioral therapy to treat individuals seeking help with anxiety, emotional regulation, stress relief, life transitions, and coping skills.
I am warm, quirky and supportive. I love a good laugh. It brings me joy to help others realize their potential and feel EMPOWERED. I believe in balance and moderation. I believe that we are ALL capable of changing things that are less than desirable in our lives. I believe we all have the potential to be better and sometimes we just need an advocate to hold us accountable, give a different perspective and be our cheerleader.
My belief that everyone is unique guides my individualized approach with clients. What works for one person may not necessarily work for another, so a big part of this process is figuring out what works best for YOU – from the type of overall therapeutic intervention to details like self-care or life choices.
This may require you to do some “work” between sessions (Examples of assignments may include journaling or focusing on your breath). That being said, I like to focus on progress, not perfection. I will help you take some of the pressure off of trying to be perfect-in-every-way all the time.
Sometimes it will still hurt. Sometimes you will be scared. Sometimes you will trip and be mad at me. But each time, I will be there to help you refocus and get back on your feet. It takes courage to seek help for a more fulfilling and happy life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

She really holds your hand through the process of confronting trauma. Hands down the best I've met

When I first reached out to Megan about working together, I asked her a few questions and she was quick to reply in a friendly, open and non-judgemental manner. She instantly made me feel at ease. During our sessions, she validated my feelings and listened to everything I had to say. I also really appreciated her more holistic approach that included meditation, yoga and journaling. I highly recommend her!

Although my time with BetterHelp has been short, Megan helped me a lot. For the first time in my life, I felt I wasn't pathetic, that my problems were true and not only in my head. She has been kind and supportive, and above all patient, since I am extremely discontinuous in committing to therapy.

Megan is a kind, supportive and very professional therapist. I feel completely at ease with her and she has already helped me a lot with some of the issues and doubts I had about myself and my situation. Always on time, replies quickly and is very understanding. I am definitely happy to be able to talk with her and I absolutely would recommend her.

I would recommend Megan to anyone seeking an online counselor. It is clear that Megan is a great listener and genuinely develops immediate care for the person she is working with. She has been very thoughtful in finding strategies for me to be able to go forward.
