(she/her) Counseling Intern
Family and Relationship Therapy

OHP, Providence, or direct payment ($50/session)

Megan deeply believes that everyone has the ability to not just survive, but to thrive. In counseling, Megan has a client-centered approach that acknowledges and embraces the individuality of each client. She works collaboratively with clients to identify strengths and set goals that feel meaningful to them and empower them within the therapeutic process. Megan works with a family systems framework and includes narrative, attachment, and emotion-focused approaches in counseling. Additionally, Megan utilizes expressive arts and play therapy when appropriate to help clients express that which may be too difficult to put into words. She strives to be aware of societal and systemic influences on clients’ lived experiences and incorporates cultural humility and anti-oppressive practices into her work.

Megan is a counseling intern pursuing a Master’s Degree in counseling with a focus on family and relationship therapy at Portland State University. Prior to becoming a counselor, she worked as an arts educator and classroom teacher for over fifteen years. This experience has given her an appreciation and understanding of the challenges faced by children and families in today’s increasingly complicated world. Megan loves working with children, parents, and families, emerging adults, and couples and relationships.
