Welcome! I am glad to see that you are taking the first step in finding someone to support you through life’s challenges. This is not easy and can be overwhelming, but it shows that you are willing to start meeting your goals. Here is a bit more about me:
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Virginia with over 6 years of experience working with a range of clients. I have worked with clients with a wide aray of concerns including depression, anxiety, parenting problems, career challenges, and self-esteem. I have worked in a wide range of settings from inpatient to outpatient. These experiences have taught me to meet people where they are in their daily lives and to actively work to be non-judgmental in my approach.
My approach to counseling is to help you to identify strengths and create solutions together to quickly find things that work for you. I want you to feel comfortable working with me, as this is one of the things I have found most beneficial in therapy, if our relationship doesn’t work, we can work to find you someone who does fit with you. I try to use humor in all of my sessions and honesty to bring meet you in the moment during each session.
For the first few sessions I would like to get to know you a bit better and from there we can make goals. I look forward to chatting with you soon!

Megan is wonderful! She’s kind, patient, and seriously a mega cheerleader.
Megan has been a fantastic help to me. She listens intently and has a deep understanding of what I am feeling as a result. She connects with me by being vulnerable and sharing personal insights, and is always adapting to my needs as a patient with new and useful exercises to help curb my anxious thoughts patterns.
Megan has been an absolute God-send in terms of counseling. I had really been struggling the past few years with some toxic parent and boundary issues, and she helped me work through them in a professional, yet empathetic manner. She also helped me learn coping skills that have been a tremendous resource.
I've enjoyed working with Megan this last few weeks. She really encourages me to focus on solution based thinking since I tend to focus on the what ifs a lot. She helped me set goals based on the conversation we've been having to this point. I feel very comfortable sharing things with her.
I am enjoying my counseling sessions with Megan. She is responsive and communicate well with me. I’m glad I started this journey.
