Accepting Clients

Everyone deserves equal economic, political and social rights and opportunities; my counseling work is my way of upholding that truth.

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Lakewood, OH


About My Clients

Maybe you have a lot of "special interests" but hesitate to talk about them because you think nobody else wants to hear it. Maybe you feel isolated, alone, or different from "normal people". Maybe sometimes, you just plain don't like who you are. Or maybe YOU like who you are - but you're not loving the lack of acceptance you get from other people. Or maybe you're so tangled up in expectations (other people's, your own, maybe both) that you barely KNOW who you are. I'm Megan. I'm here to help.

My Background and Approach

I earned both my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and my Master of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Cleveland State University in Cleveland, Ohio. I'm currently credentialed in the state of Ohio as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. I hold a certificate in Geek Cultural Competency from Leyline Education, and am also credentialed as a Certified Geek Therapist. (Geek Therapy is the practice of using a therapy client's areas of special interest to make the process of therapy more relatable.) I got my training in person-centered counseling as part of my graduate program, and I've received specialized training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Narrative Therapy. I've also completed over 100 hours of formal training in improvisational theatre, about one-third of which is focused on using improv with clients in therapy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

MY VALUES: + I will take you as you are, without judgment of any sort for any reason, and help you become who YOU want to be. + I'll be real and be me with you, and make my counseling room a safe place for you to be real with me. + I will support your right to have a voice in your own treatment and to choose the life you want to live. + I am motivated to work with you toward the long-term relief of your suffering. + I will act in a way that shows you where you stand with me; I will walk my talk; and I won't "flip the script" on you for no good reason. + I don't give up easily - and I won't give up on you. + I'm confident that our work together will lead to positive changes for you. + I will be willing to learn about your passions (if we don't already share them in common). + I operate on the "Vegas Rule": What happens and what's said in my counseling room, stays in my counseling room. ('Nuff said.) + And finally: ‚ÄčI. Will. Not. BS. You. These are my values; this is my pledge to you.
