About Me

Hello, I’m Megan

As a therapist, my role is to help you reach your goals when it comes to feeling your best, however that looks. I have worked with a variety of individuals and couples around issues such as: depression, anxiety, communication issues, and major life transitions. I have a passion for working with clients who are balancing new or chronic illness and those hoping to reconnect with their bodies while seeking weight loss, particularly the bariatric surgery population.

I am LGBTQIA+ affirming therapist and welcome individuals from all cultural and spiritual backgrounds.

My style

I work from a family system’s perspective – I view my clients in their lived context. What this means for you is I’m going to want to know about you, and your family, friends, and larger community, and how you see yourself fitting in these various roles. We then work together to identify areas where you feel stuck or out of balance and collaborate on new ways to approach these areas. I view us as a team aiming to improve your health and well-being. My theoretical orientation is informed by Emotion Focused Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy.

If this sounds like this approach may work for you, please see the “Contact me” section
