About Me

Hello there! I am truly happy you are here and have decided to embark on this therapeutic journey. It is my hope that I can be of assistance to you during the process. I received my Master's of Science degree in Mental Health Counseling, from Stetson University in 2004, and am currently a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) in the state of Florida. I have worked extensively with individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, loneliness, body image distortions, and emotional imbalances. I had a private practice in Winter Park, Florida before venturing to Nicaragua for an adventure and change of pace. I facilitated counseling and wellness retreats on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua for 7 years! I worked with people from all over the world with issues ranging from anxiety/stress, grief, and meaninglessness, to relationship problems and career/life transitions.

I am currently back in the United States and calling Miami home. A lot has changed since I left the US for the jungle of Nicaragua, but one thing has stayed the same: I feel it is an absolute privilege to work with client's as they are journeying through the unknown and trusting me with their emotional space. I was born to be a therapist, and couldn't imagine my life having taken any other path. I am also of the belief that a therapist cannot take a client further than they have been willing to go themselves. That said, self-exploration and growth have been a personal journey for me most of my life. I will be the first to tell you that the process may not be easy, and sometimes just downright messy; but with honest work, grit, and authenticity, the growth potential can be huge and often times, life changing.

I consider myself eclectic in my approach and draw my therapy style from a few different teachers, however, I tend to favor existential/humanistic philosophies, in addition to holistic modalities. Simply put, we will explore what it means to be human and the questions of meaning, choice, personal freedom, and hopefully uncovering the hidden potential that I feel most all of us possess. I also feel it is of utmost importance to look at the whole person, therefore we will explore and address your issues holistically. Our mental health is only one piece of us, therefore, it can be out of balance if we are not taking care of ourselves in other ways (i.e., physically, spiritually, nutritionally, etc).

I look forward to meeting you soon and perhaps participating in the journey with you. I already laud your insight and courage for coming this far.

Megan is sharp, picks up on the issues very quickly, has a great memory, which is used to keep one honest. I enjoyed working with her a lot and highly recommend her.
