About me

I am an LPC that has been working in some capacity in the mental health field for about 8 years serving a variety of people from various backgrounds and struggles. I have a Master's in Marriage and Family therapy from Liberty University and have worked both in offices providing individual, group, and family therapy as well as meeting people in their homes for individual therapy.

I have experience in working with individuals that face a variety of struggles including depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, identify issues, Bipolar disorder, psychosis, eating disorders, trauma, relationship issues, grief, anger management concerns, and low self esteem. Often people I work with enter the counseling relationship with fear that their struggles are too big and overwhelming for any possible help. I find joy in building a therapeutic alliance with that individual to help them see that although I will not be able to understand their experience, I am not deterred from working with them to become healthier and more stable.

I am more of an eclectic counselor, working from a variety of theories and techniques. Sessions, in my opinion, should be a natural engagement of two individuals working toward a common goal and not forced or ridged. One day a person may need to establish a daily schedule and identify 3 coping skills to manage anxiety. Another day that same individual may need to talk while painting a picture. An important question I believe is important for me to answer as a counselor is, "what do in know about my client?" Not meaning what is the person's name and demographics. What is their favorite color? What books do they like to read? What brings them joy? If I don't know an individual then how and why should that person trust me to share burdens? In that journey I do like to utilize techniques often from Cognitive Behavioral therapy, individual therapy, grief therapy, anger management, and systems theory among other modalities.

I look forward to having the opportunity to working with new individuals toward a better future!

Megan has made me feel comfortable from day one! She’s even took the time to check in on me after not hearing from me for a few days!

Megan is great! I feel so comfortable with her; it’s almost like I’m just chatting with a friend. I connected with her right away. I feel she is very attentive and understanding, and doesn’t adhere to the typical rhetoric therapists employ. I appreciate that the most.
