Meg earned a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Lewis & Clark College. Her clinical experience includes individual, couples, and group counseling with a focus on queer and trans identified individuals. Her clinical interests include gender, sexuality, grief & loss, parenting, and adoption. As a practitioner, she also serves as a clinical supervisor for the Lewis & Clark Counseling Clinic and facilitates Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™ workshops.
Meg has a foundation in relational theory and her work with clients often explores how relationships of all kinds inform, entangle and enhance their lives. This focus on relationships includes the relationship between client and therapist. Meg is committed to creating a safe, welcoming connection which allows clients to feel heard and respected as they move through the work of self-discovery and changing life patterns.
Trained by Brené Brown in the Daring Way™ Faciliatator Training (2014), Meg leads individuals and groups through the work of courage, shame, authenticity, vulnerability, and showing up to the hard things in our lives. In 2016, she completed the Rising Strong™ Facilitator Training and adds this new element of stepping into the arena after failure and showing back up after being knocked down.
Meg often co-teaches with Kirk Shepard of Rootstock Counseling, with whom she has lead groups through one-day and weekend intensives.
Identity, Connection, Trust
Meg's work explores life in the margins, and how we survive and thrive along the various lines and states of being. She has experience working with people of many genders, sexualities and relationship configurations. Her practice supports folks within the queer, trans, kink and poly communities.
Areas of work include:
- Grief and Loss
As a counselor she understands: while gender and sexuality may be important parts of your identity, they may not be the reasons you are seeking counseling. Meg welcomes these aspects of your experience without assuming that they are creating problems in your life.
And if your need for counseling does involve gender transition, coming out, hormones, exploring new relationship styles, concerns around your sexuality, and more, we’ll work together to get you through the stuck places with grace and integrity.
