I am a contextual, contemplative, and collaborative therapist who is passionate about helping burned out and commission fatigued Gen-X, and Millenial Women recognize the places where past traumas await transformation and healing so they can live lives of meaning and purpose
Have you tried talk therapy before and found it helpful only to find yourself slipping back into old patterns? Are you a teacher, nurse, therapist, pastor, coach, massage therapist, physical therapist, or another type of healer who is good at offering advice but struggles to follow your own? Do you secretly beat yourself up for not living up to some ideal?
If you do, you are not alone. Many women in the caregiving and helping field struggle with what Kate Manne defines as "human giver syndrome." Human givers are often empathic, caring, and nurturing to others. Underneath they may have parts that silently rage at others or themselves. They may also find themselves turning to things like red wine, Netflix, simple carbohydrates, spa days, or even excess exercise classes and meditation all in an attempt to take care of their own needs while still living up to the unrelenting standards that patriarchy crafts for women. If you relate to any of this–I want you to know that you are not alone and there is a way forward.
I'm Megan–like you, I am a human giver. (Or what I now call myself a human giver in recovery.). I've been trained in education, theology, and psychology. I work with other women helpers to heal. Although I don't believe in a one-size-fits-all model, I do believe that all of us are affected by trauma and stress that often leads parts of us to become stuck in their roles. Together we slow down to become aware of those parts and learn to listen to what they want and I need. We also seek the resources you have inside of you and around you. Tuning into your body and soul, we collaborate to develop a more sustainable way of living. As a holistic and integrative practitioner, I explore ways your body, brain, and soul seek to move forward and the places that seem stuck. I like to incorporate brainspotting, mindfulness, ritual, and contemplative practice in my work with clients.
