About Me

I have been providing mental health therapy in a variety of settings since 2012. I have a bachelors degree in social work, a masters degree in social work, and will graduate with my doctorate in social work in May 2021. I have been independently licensed in the state of Ohio since 2015. I have worked in community mental health as well as private practice over the last 8 years. Some of my experience includes school-based counseling for K-12, office based counseling for families, children, teens, adults, and college-aged students, as well as providing in-home therapy for teens and families. I have enjoyed all of these different settings. Using solution-focused, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and trauma informed approaches are important to me as I help all people receive the help they need. I have experience in working with anxiety, depression, life changes, work-related stress, relationships, domestic violence, sexual violence, and trauma. Having a safe, confidential way for people to share their thoughts and feelings is important as I used treatment methods most beneficial for what you need. Empathy and connection are important as we work towards coping and finding strengths for life's challenges.

Megan has been a godsend to me in the most stressful and scary time of my life. She is kind, understanding, empathetic, and has helped me to start to feel normal again.

Written by C.H. on Feb 10, 2021 after counseling with Megan for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, eating disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

Megan has been so impactful in my life in just a few weeks, she is not only intelligent but her experience allows her to really approach my concerns with practical solutions.

She has a gentle and understanding demeanor that makes her very relatable. I would definitely recommend her to a friend.
