Megan Mitchell, LCPC, PMH-C
Hello and welcome! I am passionate about working with individuals who are pregnant, postpartum, trying to conceive, or experiencing other various challenges related to pregnancy or parenthood. Becoming a parent can be one the most exciting times of our lives, though it does not come without it’s challenges, twists and turns. You may be struggling with mental health symptoms, or merely overwhelmed with adjusting to new life circumstances related to the child-bearing time period. No matter your situation, we can work together to transform difficult life experiences into motivating and meaningful platforms for positive change within yourself and personal relationships.
My primary goal as a therapist is to create a warm and welcoming space for you to feel understood, heard, respected, and safe. I enter each session with empathy, an open mind, and a touch of humor. I believe that you are the expert of your own life, and with the proper non-judgmental support and unconditional positive regard, you have the ability to tap into your own innate tools and wisdom for growth and expansion that is authentic and true to you! I work collaboratively with my clients and meet them where they are to help nurture their own personal goals for achieving the life they desire.
I have received advanced training in perinatal mental health and mood disorders through Postpartum Support International, and have additional experience working with individuals who have struggled with anxiety, depression, grief/loss, identity development, parenting, women’s issues, substance use/addiction and relationship issues. I also have extensive training in spiritually-integrated psychotherapy for those who wish to incorporate this component into their treatment. I utilize a person-centered, trauma-informed, and culturally sensitive approach that incorporates elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), mindfulness, psychoanalysis, and other various theoretical interventions holistically tailored to meet your individual needs, strengths, and preferences.
Parents cannot give from a depleted source. When you invest in your own health, wellness, and growth, you are also investing in that of your children’s, and so much more. Just like taking necessary safety measures on an airplane, it is critical that you put your oxygen mask on first! I understand that the first step towards finding the right therapist can be quite intimidating—I would love to hear from you so we can we further discuss any questions or concerns you may have.
