Professional statement

Get in touch with us now to get scheduled for your virtual appointment in as little as 24 hours!

I have been in the social work field since 2014 helping children, teens, and adults through their various concerns. I enjoy treating any individual who feels they would benefit from therapy, especially if their concerns are multi-faceted and complex. I am dual-licensed to treat both substance use and mental health concerns in the state of Montana and Washington state. I have completed trainings in modalities such as DBT, CBT, ACT, and trauma-informed therapy. However, I believe there is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy, and often integrate multiple theoretical approaches in my work with clients.

I have experience in treating individuals in a wide variety of therapeutic settings ranging from residential to outpatient treatment centers. Through my experience, I have found the most profound change for clients is accomplished through long term, client-focused therapy in an outpatient setting. I offer therapy sessions via telehealth, so clients have the flexibility to join from wherever they feel most comfortable.

Logistic details: Megan offers tele counseling sessions in Montana and Washington through Mind of Peace Counseling. She does not currently offer in-person sessions. The Mind of Peace Clinical Coordinator, Raine, reaches out to all new inquiries within 24 - 48 business hours to go over intake and scheduling.

Message to clients

My training encompasses a diverse range of therapeutic methods, and I firmly believe in the importance of customizing treatment to suit your unique needs throughout the entire therapeutic journey. My approach combines supportive therapeutic techniques with structured interventions, ensuring that you experience tangible progress and valuable insights. I believe the most important component in therapy is the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and client, and work to strengthen that relationship at every stage of treatment. I want you to feel like an active participant in what your treatment looks like along with how your treatment progresses. In your first few sessions, we will come up with a plan together for your treatment and will check in regarding progress often.
