About Me

Hi, I’m Meg, an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist.

I help individuals and couples explore how our past experiences influence our current behaviors and relationships. I believe that a deeper understanding of the connection between past and present builds compassion for ourselves and our partners, gives us greater insight into our relational patterns, and fosters self-awareness and change.

Many of us are using coping strategies that helped us to overcome past stressors and traumas but are no longer working for us. I help my clients to access untapped strengths and learn new strategies and techniques. It takes courage to begin therapy and to be open to seeing our experiences in a new light, but this process unlocks new ways of connecting with ourselves and others, builds deeper connections and intimacy, and enhances satisfaction with our life and relationships.

I love my job and believe it is a privilege to support my clients in trying times and to witness their healing and growth. I have a special interest in helping individuals and couples navigating grief and loss, struggling with the transition to parenthood, and coping with conflict in parent-child relationships.

What Makes Me Credible

I am experienced in treating individuals, couples, and families dealing with depression, anxiety, PTSD, trauma, and perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. I believe in a collaborative approach to treatment that aligns your personal strengths and goals with my clinical insight and the latest scientific research. I use evidence-based treatments and modalities, including Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), the Gottman Method, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Internal Family Systems (IFS).
