As a therapist at Selah House, one of Meg’s primary goals is to help clients to identify the “why” behind their eating disorders. She strives to help clients explore the underlying reasons for their distress while providing support and safety as they gradually learn to separate their true selves from their eating disorder. She also provides clients with new perspectives, coping skills, and communication skills to identify, embrace, and share their needs with loved ones, repairing the family dynamic through communication and understanding. Meg specializes in assisting youth in their recovery from traumatic experiences through expressive and artistic modalities, though several methods of therapeutic approach are utilized to tailor the therapeutic experiences to the individual. Regardless of the method, the client has a crucial role in determining the best therapy for their recovery. Meg is a retired veteran of the US Army. Following her retirement, she pursued her undergraduate degree in Psychology and graduate degree in Marriage, Couple, and Family Therapy, with a focus on trauma and crisis. Following graduation, Meg completed her practicum and was introduced to working with children recovering from sexual abuse and domestic violence. This shifted Meg’s focus to working more exclusively with children/adolescents, as she enjoys helping youth to recapture some of their lost childhoods through laughter, silliness, and fun. Through this approach, Meg finds ways to help youth embrace their diversity, reconnect with their strengths, and re-learn how to love themselves fully. Meg is married to a Speedway firefighter, is raising two amazing young men, and has three rescued pets. In her spare time, Meg loves to create art, read, practice yoga, bake, and pamper her ridiculously huge collection of beautiful house plants.
