BODY ❂ MIND ❂ SPIRIT
Hi, I'm Meagan
I am a trauma informed, somatically trained, attachment focused Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Los Angeles.
I am also a neurodivergent woman and highly sensitive human, and my lived experience has meaningfully shaped who I am and how I practice. My own journey to Self has guided the way I work with clients. I am not a “blank slate.” I’m a real person in the room, forming a real relationship with the people who come to me for help.
Therapy helps people who recognize that something in their life isn’t working. It might be chronic feelings of unwellness, struggles with relationships, a sense of disconnectedness or unfullfillment… and something HAS to change.
If you want things to feel better -- if YOU want to feel better -- I can help.
Somatic, emdr, & Talk Therapy
FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE
Change is possible
I use a combination of evidence-based modalities in a creative and collaborative way to help give my clients the support and tools needed to access true healing and growth.
N.A.T. is a body-based healing approach that uses attuned therapeutic touch to decrease stress, increase trust & connection, and foster resilience and regulation in the whole self.
Over the last 7 years of practicing therapy and exploring who I am, I have invested a great deal of time and energy deepening my knowledge around particular issues that people, including myself, struggle with. I consider these my “Special Interests.”
Trauma is anything that feels like "Too Much, Too Fast, Too Soon." People experience trauma in many different ways, and at all stages of life. Whether a physical injury, a devastating loss, a toxic work environment, or adverse childhood experiences, trauma stays rooted in our nervous systems and negatively impacts our mental and physical wellbeing.
Neurodivergence is the concept that some people's brains function outside of the boundaries of what society considers "normal," and that there is nothing wrong or problematic with that. Just because you are Autistic, ADHD, Highly Sensitive, OCD, or otherwise unique in the way your mind works, it doesn't mean you are broken.
Chronic Conditions like Back Pain, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, IBS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and others are increasingly prevalent in our society, and they are debilitating, isolating, and scary. The standard medical approach focuses on symptom alleviation, but does little to explore the complex underlying issues, and rarely heals such conditions.
Women in our society so often face difficulty and unhappiness with issues tied to things like self neglect, boundary setting, hyper-vigilance, sexual dysfunction, body image, female relationships, and more. The way women are treated and the way we learn to treat ourselves has and continues to harm generation after generation.
