about ME

Hi! I'm Megan. 

I am an Atlantan transplant originally from Milwaukee, WI.  A growing curiosity of people, the prospect of change, and

the enticing opportunity to learn led me here. It's also kept me here....From a young age, I found myself engaged in conversations with

adults and finding those much more interesting than the ones my peers were having. I began to notice that I was a person

people came to- for advice, for comfort, and for simple presence.   

And I loved it. 

As I grew, I became consumed with the mystery of the human condition. I wanted to know why people are the way they are.  

I wanted to understand the roles of history, family, attachments, experience, spirituality, culture, and more in a person's life. 

I wanted to create space for the many pains I witnessed. I wanted to empower, encourage, and stand alongside. 

 

As I engaged my own (sometimes invigorating and other times excruciating) therapy process, this desire to be a witness to the

human experience grew.  

Hence, I became a therapist.

 

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (License #LPC008487) in the state of Georgia.

I am also the founder and director of both The Brookhaven Center for Counseling & Wellness and Engage Premarital Counseling

It is my great joy to join my clients in their journey with compassion, curiosity, and love.

 

In our work together, you can expect that I will bring my whole self to this process, as we co-create something new together.
