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 a doctorate degree in social work. 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.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Megan Gonyer. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Dr. Gonyer is very responsive and can work within the boundaries of day to day life. Whether that is late in the day scheduling or letting me leave messages of things i want to review in our next visit.
