Megan works with individuals, couples, adult family members, and groups.   She meets clients where they are at with non-judgmental care and compassion.

Megan acknowledges that somatic (trauma) bodywork is integral to counselling therapy and psychotherapy.  “The conscious and subconscious issues of your life certainly present through physical symptoms like anxiety, panic, and depression.   Stressors surface if hurts, heartaches, hangups, and traumas are left untreated and unresolved over time.”  She treats the symptoms while getting to the root causes.  Relapsing back into old ways of coping and normal, however needs to be part of the change cycle.  Megan teaches relapse prevention skills to her clients;  most behavioural change has a relapse component in it.
