Meagan is a Resident in Counseling at Alexandria Place Therapy. She received her undergraduate degree from Montana State University and then pursued her Master of Arts degree in Family, Marriage and Couples Counseling with a specialization in Play Therapy from George Fox University in Portland, Oregon. She is currently working toward licensure in the Commonwealth of Virginia as a Licensed Professional Counselor.
Meagan has provided individual, family and group therapy in a variety of settings, addressing issues that include ADHD, adjustment, anxiety, abuse, autism, and the child-parent relationship. Meagan has specialized training in play therapy, expressive arts therapy, international therapy, trauma and child-parent relationship training (CPR-T).
Meagan approaches therapy through a person-centered, collaborative and attachment-based lens, believing that individuals have the natural ability to strive toward growth but sometimes life presents challenges that may inhibit that natural growth. By providing an empathetic, non-judgmental, and safe place, clients can navigate and explore the changes they would like to make in order to continue towards positive growth.
