I am a licensed clinical social worker in Indiana with over 15 years of experience working as a therapist and life coach. I earned a Bachelor of Arts (Major: Psychology) from Indiana University, Bloomington in 2003 and earned a Masters in Social Work (MSW) from Indiana University-Purdue University, Indianapolis in 2008. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, substance abuse, recovery maintenance, teens transitioning to adulthood, and healing from past trauma and abuse. I also have experience helping families navigate the child welfare system and foster care.
I am passionate about empowering and supporting individuals who have been in or are currently in emotionally abusive or toxic relationships. These relationships may include, but are not limited to, love bombing followed by gaslighting, isolation from your friends or family, questioning your own reality, feel as though you've lost your sense of self, and have a desire to leave but can't bring yourself to go through with it or a desire to get back together with your partner even though you know it is not healthy for you. My goal is to educate you on toxic traits and red flags, empower you to find your sense of self again, and equip you with the tools necessary to heal from this silent abuse.
My therapy style is warm, interactive, and empowering, yet straightforward and forthright. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmas or labels. I believe everyone has power within them to heal and make healthy changes in their lives. My job is to help you find that power so you can rediscover your voice and start creating the life you want to live! My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Megan has gotten me through so much transition in the last year, helped me through my past issues, and really been a torch of wisdom and insight. I have always appreciated her directness, and her ability to help me face my struggles in a grounded way.

Megan has been a wonderful provider and resource for me during a difficult time of my life. She has been insightful and supportive. I love that she gives resources and “homework” for me to work on between sessions.

Megan was amazing. She helped me so much with my postpartum depression and all the changes that I was going through. I still use coping methods that she taught me and I saved a lot of information that I needed that she supplied to me. I tell everyone about BetterHelp and about how amazing she made me feel. I loved talking to her. It honestly was like talking to her best friend that I've never met and I think that if you get along with your psychiatrist and you feel open and free then it just makes everything so much easier.
