Meaghan is a trauma therapist, who primarily works with folks who have a history of childhood and adulthood trauma, and who are experiencing trauma impacts that are interfering in their daily life. Meaghan works with individuals and couples. Common concerns that people bring to therapy are interpersonal conflict, low self-esteem, trauma impacts, coping with mental health symptoms, boundaries, grief & loss, and desire to explore experiences related to sexuality, gender, and sexual orientation. She works from a relational-cultural approach, incorporating Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, Trauma Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy.
My approach to therapy is client-centred, strength-based, feminist, anti-oppressive, and trauma-informed. I pay particular attention to how early life experiences shape who we are today. I take a curious stance, encouraging you to look inward for answers and to explore patterns in your life.
I aim to create a space that is warm, inviting and collaborative. I view you as the expert of your own life, and my role as one that witnesses and accompanies you on your journey towards healing and empowerment.
