1.What sorts of things do you enjoy doing with your leisure time?

Unwinding and self-care are important in this career. Outside of the office, you may find me spending time with my husband and our families, cooking and enjoying meals, exercising and getting outside for sunshine or skiing, reading, and traveling with friends.

2. So tell us a little bit about what you do, the services you offer and where your located.

I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor working with adults, teens, children, and families. My counseling is based on the premise that you are capable of enhancing your own quality of life through goal-setting, learning new skills, and improving your coping and communication skills. My goal is to help you find relief for your life stressors and better understand how you’re thinking, feeling, and behaving.

I’ve worked in Fayette, Greene, and Washington Counties in behavioral health and mobile therapy and recently came from Seton Hill Univ. in Greensburg, where I provided mental health counseling and alcohol and drug education, counseling, and programming. I’m excited to be back in Uniontown to join Momentum’s quality services.

3. Aside from purposes of income, why do you do what you do? What do you enjoy most about your work?

I’ve never dreaded going to work. Even during the more challenging times, I’m energized by my clients’ strength – just coming in for therapy takes guts for many people. I’m honored to be present for them and be permitted to join someone’s difficult life experience. I get to bring research, skills, and theory to our unique dynamic in session.

4. Do you have a mission statement, or to put it more simply, do you have a mission in general when you think about completing your work?

My personality leads me to have a generally warm and welcoming approach, combined with cognitive behavioral, solution-focused, and play therapy, mindfulness, and wellness planning & activities. Some of the concerns I treat include anxiety, depression, ADHD, behavioral/emotional disorders, adjustment disorders, and relationship issues. I also work with clients interested in improving self-esteem, coping skills, communication/socialization, anger management, attachment issues, marital/relationship issues, family conflict, sadness, stress, academic/work issues, and LGBTQIA+ issues.

From Megan:

1.What sorts of things do you enjoy doing with your leisure time?

As a busy mom of two leisure time is not something that I know much about! I spend a lot of time with my children at their activities. However, I do enjoy many things in life! I enjoy cooking/baking for my family, reading, being outdoors whether biking or hiking. My most favorite things on being on the water, lake or beach, and running outside.

2.  So tell us a little bit about what you do, the services you offer and where your located.

Our business is built on helping people. Each therapist that works in our office is passionate and cares about the individuals, couples, and families that they work with. What we do is listen, support, work with, and build each person up to be a better individual in all aspects of life. Our goal is to work hard, become confident in their learned skills, and move on to a better stage in life.

3. Aside from purposes of income, why do you do what you do? What do you enjoy most about your work?

I am a therapist because I have a passion for helping and listening to others. I have always enjoyed being a friend and a confidant. I now get the privilege to be that for many people. I most enjoy working with people who have been through trauma. I love watching a person transform as they fight through the pain and build the skills necessary to overcome their hardships. It is invigorating to watch how strong and determined people are!

4. Do you have a mission statement, or to put it more simply, do you have a mission in general when you think about completing your work?

My mission is to help affect change in others’ lives. My goal is to help as many people as I can in this short life that we live. I accomplish this by who I am and what I believe in. I am warm, caring, and invested. I believe all people can and will change if they want to. In my work, I utilize many different genres of therapy cognitive behavioral, trauma- focused cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused, and play therapy, and mindfulness. Some of the concerns I treat include trauma, anxiety, depression, ADHD, behavioral/emotional disorders, adjustment disorders, and relationship/ family issues. I also work with clients interested in improving self-esteem, coping skills, communication/socialization, anger management, attachment issues, marital/relationship issues, family conflict, veterans, stress, academic/work issues, and LGBTQIA+ issues.

5. Is there any ways in which your business gives back to the community?

Our business in the past has given back on a smaller scale. We have at times done things for our clients to help meet their needs. Our business has also supported athletic teams in the past and present. We are currently in the planning stages of reaching the community in a bigger way. We will be doing two bigger community give backs in the Spring and Fall. We are open to suggestions for possibilities of our involvement! Please feel free to contact us!
