A Note From Megan

I love to see the light shine in someone’s eyes when they feel seen and understood about something that they have been struggling with and feeling alone in. In my work with people, I rely on creating a sense of safety, connection, and authenticity. I also greatly value God’s heart for responsibility and freewill. It is so inspiring for me to witness my clients create insight and make new choices that deeply align with their values and God’s Word. Prayer, meditating on scripture, and working with/feeling difficult emotions are important elements of my style and perspective on growth. Growth can be difficult at times, but we come away from the difficulty with the treasure of a deeper relationship with God and others. And this is a treasure we wouldn’t trade for anything.

I have many interests including a love for studying God’s Word, spending time in the outdoors including rafting, hiking, camping, and climbing, and building/working with my hands. I also enjoy music and worship time. Playing the guitar and singing are ways that I like to express my heart and creativity.

Counselor Competency

MyCounselor has as its aim to be the gold standard in faith-based mental health. Our counselors are required to have undergraduate studies in theology, practical ministry, or psychology and have completed a graduate (master’s) degree in mental health (professional counseling, clinical social work, marriage & family therapy, etc.).

  • We only hire around 2% of applicants
  • Require at least a Master’s Degree in Mental Health
  • 2-Year Post-Graduate Residency in Neuroscience Informed Christian Counseling® (NICC)
  • 400+ hours of Continuing Education each year

After submitting an application package that includes transcripts, references, and video responses to a structured interview, qualified candidates are invited into a multi-stage interview process. During the process candidates will meet with clinical supervisors, perform a mock therapy session, and participate in a training with the MyCounselor clinical team. If advanced from the final interview with the Director of Clinical Services, candidates are offered a position on the clinical team and matriculated into the MyCounselor residency.

During residency counselors complete multiple rotations of clinical training and experience with specific populations, including individuals, couples, families, and teens. Specifically, residents are trained in the MyCounselor proprietary model of care: Neuroscience Informed Christian Counseling® (NICC) as applied in practice with various presenting issues.

The thorough training our counselors receive in a broad array of specialized rotations equips them to address counseling concerns ranging from the common to the complex.

Recent Testimonial

I had the opportunity to see Megan for about 10 months. She was a true blessing to me. I came with health struggles that left me feeling very alone and with little hope. Spending time each week with Megan helped me find the peace and encouragement that I so needed. I highly recommend Megan to anyone seeking to find healing and hope while growing their faith also. I know she’ll be a blessing to anyone she works with.
