Megan has truly changed my life. I've seen multiple therapists over the years and no one has made an impact on me and my mental health that Megan has. She is compassionate and understanding, non-judgmental and insightful. She always responds to my messages quickly with support and good advice. Therapy is rarely easy, but it is always worth the hard work. I am so thankful for Megan.
