Therapy is a process of exploration and self-understanding that is unique to each individual. Megan loves her work as a therapist because relationships are sacred to her. The therapeutic relationship is especially sacred to her because the client enters the relationship with openness. Megan is an active therapist in session and has a casual, inviting style. Megan uses her humanness, a justice-oriented approach, the many modalities in which she is trained, and quality time with the client to begin to understand how she can help them move through their identified needs. From there, the relationship grows and therapeutic change can take place.
Megan specializes in working with people across the lifespan. She enjoys working with teens, adults, families, and parents who are raising teens/young adults. Megan specializes in working with all types of trauma, LGBTQIA+ folx, teens and young adults who have dual diagnoses, grief, highly sensitive people, and more. Individual and family therapy are her primary offerings in a therapeutic space, and she is happy to invite a client’s partner, friend, housemate, or parent in for sessions when it is helpful to the therapy.
Megan enjoys the outdoors, biking, and the natural beauty of the world around her. She is a native plant enthusiast and Minnesota Water Steward. She loves all things environmental conservation. Megan is married, has two kids, and loves living in the Twin Cities. She is a transplant to MN and was born and raised in Colorado where she lived until she was 21 years old. She has a background in emergency medicine (she was an EMT in Colorado) and has worked in various capacities as a “helper.” She loves coffee and will probably be drinking a cup when you meet.
Megan works with individuals across the spectrum of age, race, gender, ability, and sexual orientation.
