I’m glad you’re here! My name is Megan and my pronouns are she/her/hers. I firmly believe that everyone deserves access to not only mental health care, but mental health care that is safe, inclusive, and affirming for all. In meeting with me, you can expect to be met with compassion and understanding. It is of utmost importance to me to develop a collaborative relationship that fosters trust and empowerment. I will respect your own lived experience, thoughts, feelings, and belief systems. Recognizing my own identities, the impact of systemic discrimination, and oppression to those of marginalized identities, I strive to be a fierce advocate for each of my clients, ultimately creating a space that is trauma-informed, anti-racist, sex-positive, and LGBTQIA+ affirming. Not only do each of your identities deserve to be celebrated, they also deserve the space to acknowledge and unpack the challenges that may come with them. My work is individualized to meet the needs of each client as I will work collaboratively with you from a lens that is heavily influenced by solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral, and person-centered approaches. I believe the client is the expert in their own life and that at their core, humans are capable of healing and change. Above all, I am committed to helping others find the healing, balance, and meaning they may be looking for.
Qualifications and Specialties
I earned both my undergraduate degree in psychology (with a minor in women’s and gender studies), and my graduate degree in professional counseling (with an emphasis in clinical mental health counseling) at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. I work with individuals 13 and up, and with LGBTQIA+ identities, depression, anxiety, stress management, transition and adjustment needs, body image concerns, and self-esteem building.
