I’m married with two children, and see marriage as the space where some of the toughest and most beautiful self-growth can occur. My interest in healthy relationships has lead to my career in counseling where I hope to support individuals and couples in working through life transitions, and establishing new habits to maintain a thriving relationship. If your partner is not willing to engage in couples counseling, you can still receive benefit! Many people attend individual counseling to work on relationship goals and experience positive changes in their relationship based on the changes they’ve made. I also have extensive experience working with survivors of trauma including domestic violence, sexual abuse and human trafficking.
I am trained in taking a trauma informed approach to addressing your story, and use a strengths-based model to support you in experiencing empowerment. Many people report a desire to ignore their past but find at times it starts to creep up and can no longer be ignored, as it may be impacting your relationships with others or your functioning in important areas of your life.
I am happy to support you in addressing where you may have been deeply hurt. You will be able to move at you own pace in therapy and will set the tone for what you need your sessions to be.
My passion is healthy relationships.
Being in a satisfying relationship can have an impact on all areas of life and my career has been focused on supporting others in determining what a healthy relationship could look like for them.
I have heard clients say they waited to seek counseling because it made them feel weak or they did not want anyone to take pity on them. I’m quick to share that discussing the tough issues and facing them head on shows your incredible resiliency and strength from what you have survived.
It is my privilege to be given insight into your world to try and resolve what may not be working for you.

Megan has been so wonderful and understanding. My schedule has been crazy, and she continues to check in and make sure I'm doing okay, even when I'm not as responsive as I know I need to be. She reassures me that she is here for me and that I can reach out to her whenever I need to.
