My Approach to Helping

Welcome! You just took a big step in finding help and that takes courage! 

My name is Megan Winkler, and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC). More specifically, I am someone who is passionate about your mental health. In a time where skilled therapists abound, it can be difficult to know if you’re connecting with the right professional.

I have a Bachelor's in Psychology and a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am a nationally certified counselor (NCC). I have a history of working with the incarcerated population, sex offenders, foster children, co-occurring disorders, mood disorders, personality disorders, PTSD, anxiety disorders, depression, grief and loss, codependency, impulsivity, and couples and family.
I enjoy exploring new foods and cultures, reading a good book, spending time with my family, taking my pup to the park, and spending time at the beach. I entered this field because mental health should be treated with the same respect as other chronic diseases. Mental health is health!

Coming to therapy and being vulnerable can be scary. Stop letting fear dictate your future and choose today to prioritize your mental health! I’m looking forward to helping you along this journey!
