The most important thing about me as a therapist is my hope and belief in all of my clients. Recognizing that you're unhappy and want to make changes is one of the biggest challenges, and you're here! Let's talk more, and we can work together to move forward as partners in this process. Therapy with me is a safe place to unload all the things life throws your way, and I'll provide genuine and real communication about what's going on. We'll talk about practical ways to change those thoughts and your life.
As a therapist, I like to remember and remind myself that my clients know their lives and themselves better than I do, and my role is to walk alongside you as you work through different challenges you're experiencing. I view my role as more of a navigator and you're in the driver's seat. During my time with older teens and adult individuals, my style is very person-centered, meaning I'll meet you where you are and not expect you to know things that youhaven't experienced, and we'll walk through it together, honestly and openly. I'm also a very solution-focused person, and try to bring this into my sessions as well, helping you find solutions for issues, so that it doesn't feel that you're running around in circles without making progress. I know your time is important, and you want to feel that you're getting something from every conversation we have. I'm not afraid to pull from many different counseling modalities in order to best serve your needs, and I love learning new ways to tackle problems. A strong therapeutic relationship is ultimately the most important part of therapy in order to progress through the therapeutic process. This means that you are comfortable sharing your life and thoughts with me and I understand where you are coming from and hear your concerns. One thing that might set me apart, is that I realize the importance of our whole experiences, meaning that we'll talk not only about what's going on in your mind, but also the other aspects of life (diet, exercise, sleep). A huge part of managing mental health, not only for you but for me as well, is having a good balance of these as well as coping skills to help manage depression, anxiety, mood and stress.
My name is Meghan, and I'm a licensed mental health counselor working in the state of Florida. I graduated from the University of Central Florida (Go Knights!) in 2009 and have been working as a therapist ever since. I started my career working with children and families in the community setting and homes, worked in the school setting with at-risk teenagers, and most recently I see clients, aged 12-30, in my private practice. In my personal life, I like to spend time with my family and two dogs, Omar and Olive, read, bike and run, and visit the beach. I also love to travel, experience new things and meet new people.

In just a few short weeks Meghan has been responding in a quick timely fashion, listening intently to my goals and worries, and has been quick to give me tools and guidance to work towards conquering my demons, leading a self loving life, and being happier. She is truly a blessing to the mind of the afflicted.
I love Meghan so much. And she has helped me tremendously and I fall back every now and again and she’s always there in a helping hand when needed! Seriously one of my favorite people to ever converse with
Meghan is extraordinary. She listens, she hears and she feels. She goes above and beyond the status quo of helping. Meghan has made this experience for me easy and becoming. Her kindness and her kindred spirit makes me want to dig deeper, to fix, and to be better.
