Hello there! My name is Megan, and I specialize in helping people discover clarity about who they are, what they want out of life, and how to attain it. I provide career coaching, life coaching, and individual therapy to people looking to grow personally and professionally. I can help you with things like:
- Improving your relationships
- Figuring out your career
- Feeling good about who you are
- Navigating major life transitions
- Feeling less stressed
- Becoming more organized and productive
- Setting healthy boundaries
- Feeling happier and more confident
- Healing from difficult life experiences
I’ve been told by past clients that I have a warm, understanding, and empathetic presence. They’ve also commented on my ability to “reframe” their perspectives in a way that feels more helpful and empowering. I can help provide insight into yourself and the way you relate to others so that you can develop self-awareness and the opportunity to make positive changes.
Most importantly, I can provide you with the safe space required to reflect, process, and overcome the inner obstacles that may currently be holding you back. I specialize in helping you identify problems and implement solutions. Our work together will be collaborative and nonjudgmental. My goal is to provide you with the tools, support, and experiences you need to be in charge of your success!
Here’s a little more about my approach to my specialties of career coaching, life coaching and individual therapy, and how I can help YOU.
My approach to career counseling and career coaching is centered on helping you figure out who you are, your strengths, your values, your talents, and your aspirations. I can help you with things like:
- Identifying your strengths and talents
- Uncovering your core values
- Figuring out what kind of work would bring you the most authentic happiness and meaning
- Exploring options for your educational path
- Setting achievable goals
- Time management and personal productivity
My work as a career coach is largely based on Super’s Career Development Theory, which is rooted in the idea that career development is life-long! This means that no matter where you are in life, we can work together to gain clarity about your future successes.
If we work together for career coaching I may use a variety of assessments and activities such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), CliftonStrengths, value sorting, accountability check ins, and reasonable goal setting.
I have a holistic approach to career counseling and coaching, meaning that I help you explore factors outside your on-the-job time to ensure that your whole life is healthy, happy and satisfying for you.
Together, we can explore how your personal growth opportunities may be manifesting themselves at work, and also how your professional life is impacting your personal life. Your health and wellness, your emotional wellbeing, your ways of communicating and relating to others, and your overall life goals will all be honored during our work together.
As a life coach, I can work with you on things like:
- General life transitions
- Relationship issues
- Navigating ADHD in the real world
- Time management
- Goal setting
- Boundary setting
- Develop a stronger self of self
- Improving body image and self esteem building
- Self compassion and mindfulness
To guide my work with you I draw from solution-focused strategies, cognitive-behavioral theory, and an empowering strengths-based perspective. I can help you identify and achieve goals that will allow you to become a more authentic version of yourself.
In addition to helping you achieve insight and self-awareness, as your coach I’ll also help you find and sustain your motivation, teach you tools and techniques that you can apply to real life situations, and design assignments and activities that you can do between our sessions to implement the things we’re talking about.
I am excited to offer solution sessions! A solution session is a single, solution focused coaching session that is focused on providing clarity and direction to help you navigate a challenging situation. We’ll talk things through, brainstorm together, and you’ll leave with a written plan of action that will guide your next steps. In our focused sessions, we will work together to develop a plan that feels achievable and sustainable to you.
During a solution session I can help you with things like:
- Whether to leave a job
- How to handle starting a new job
- Making big decisions
- Exploring educational options
- How to handle relationship issues
- Goal setting
My method of counseling is rooted in a person-centered approach meaning, to me, the relationship is the most important aspect of counseling. By putting the counseling relationship first, I provide a nonjudgmental space for you to set the pace and create what you need from therapy.
I am a certified Cognitive-Behavioral Therapist. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is one of the most widely researched and well supported therapeutic approaches, and the one that has been shown to be the most direct path to growth and healing. I will use activities and homework such as journaling, challenging beliefs, and thinking activities in which we will review together and discuss. I also teach and encourage relaxation techniques and mindfulness activities.
I have years of experience in working with clients aged 12-60 around a wide range of issues, from job-related stress, to relationships, to gender and sexuality, to disability identity, to life transitions, to recovering from trauma. Examples of situations I have helped with are:
- Helping someone who is recently divorced heal, and develop a new sense of identity outside of their marriage.
- Exploring educational and career opportunities with students who have recently graduated.
- Creating structure and guidance for people managing a challenging life circumstance (chronic illness, family emergencies, former legal trouble)
- Owning a new disability diagnosis as an empowered and celebrated identity
- Working with individuals who are dating and helping them create the type of relationship they want and deserve.
- Helping survivors of trauma heal, and move forward.
- Provide a safe space for clients to explore gender and sexuality identities without judgment or conclusions
- Deconstruct negative beliefs about one’s self to empower them and instill confidence
- Teach coping strategies for managing anxiety both at home and in the real world
- Helping people recover from depression
Previous clients have commented on my ability to be present with them through difficult situations and how they have felt understood and empowered in our sessions. Clients have stated that I am very honest and transparent with them throughout the counseling process, offering helpful and realistic insight. I have been told that I am able to provide a different approach to problems and that I am motivated to help them succeed.
If we work together, I hope to provide a similar experience for you, too.
I completed my Bachelor’s of Science in Human Services with a minor in Psychology from the University of Northern Colorado (UNC). I then jumped straight into graduate school at the University of Wyoming (UW) where I completed my Master’s of Science in Professional Mental Health Counseling.
During my time at both UNC and UW, I worked with students with disabilities, helping them access education and career-related opportunities. I have also worked on campus at the advising and career services center as a career counseling intern. After college, I worked both at a private practice, serving teenagers, young adults, and older adults, as well as at a college campus counseling center.
Born and raised in Colorado, I love everything green chili. I have a siamese cat named MJ (we just call her Jim) and an unhealthy obsession with Rocky Horror Picture Show. I love skiing, knitting, and finding cute little mountain towns on my days off!
I am available to meet with you in person at our Broomfield and Fort Collins office locations, as well as through online video.
