Mental Health Therapist, Trauma Therapist
"The journey to and through parenthood can open old wounds and create new ones. I believe people have the ability to heal these wounds and access the strength and confidence within themselves to become who they long to be."
Whether you are looking for support, clarity, healing, or to "dig deep", Megan is ready to help you meet your goals.
Research shows that traumatic experiences can become "stuck" in the body, and convince us that the trauma is still occurring. Through evidence-based therapies we can work together to put your experiences in the past and give the story an end.
By getting to know the parts of us that protect our most young, vulnerable, and hurt parts, we can go to those parts, understand the significance, and produce healing.
