My Approach to Helping

Now and again life can throw you curve balls and can become overwhelming with so many emotions that cloud your day to day routine. Covid threw us all for a loop but especially athletes and coaches. So much has been taken away and you have so many emotions: anger, sadness, numbness, bitterness, and anxiety to name a few. Sports has been your saving grace but when that was taken away you would ask yourself “what do I do now?”

My name is Megan and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) and an Emotional Support Coach. I help overworked, overburdened, burnt out athletes & coaches reclaim their life and their joy for the work they do. I utilize an array of approaches that give me the flexibility and readiness to approach your concerns head on. You’ll learn how to find balance, when and how to say no, how to set boundaries, and how to recharge. All sessions will be online using a HIPPA compliant platform. I love helping my clients improve and strengthen skills necessary to succeed in life, business, and in the gymfield.

More Info About My Practice

With experience as a student-athlete, head coach and assistant coach at the university, junior college and high school levels, I truly understand the stress that coaches and athletes feel on a day to day basis. Through my own personal experiences, advanced education and diverse professional positions over the past 15+ years, I offer a wide range of knowledge, while my receptiveness, compassion and encouragement create a safe space to release your worries and grow through the process. While I take an active therapeutic role, I find true joy in watching from the sidelines as you make life changes to improve your overall well-being.
