Working with Children & Teens

Being a kid can be hard sometimes. Megan helps children, teens and their families build a safe and trusting environment where we can discuss and explore barriers that create additional challenges like anxiety, depression or trauma. Megan takes a family systems approach to better understand how children and teens think, feel and behave in the systems they belong to.

Working with Parents
