About Megan

I am passionate about working with people in early recovery and those who have recently decided to stop using drugs and alcohol. So much change and growth is happening at this time and I love being a part of it! I truly enjoy helping my clients learn to love and believe in themselves. I have faith in the process of therapy as it has helped me (and continues to help me) overcome my own challenges. During a session you might notice that I’m compassionate, insightful, direct, warm, encouraging, and funny. why im a therapist, my history

How Change Happens

There are many ways to grow and change. Each therapist has their own perspective on how this change happens. My belief is that we all want to find meaning and purpose in our lives. This influences our choices, behaviors, and perceptions of the world. Although I don’t focus on the past, I will explore past experiences and relationships in session. Our history stays with us and effects who we are today.
