Meg specializes in working with children and their families. Specialties include life changes (e.g., divorce and separation, remarriage and blended families, and grief and loss); living with disabilities (e.g., autism, ADD, OCD, anxiety, and depression); and other life problems (e.g., social skills, bullying, and trauma). She also has a special interest in assisting individuals of all ages battling chronic pain.

When seeing children, Meg prefers to speak with the parents/guardians first without the child present. That way parents can feel free to talk about their worries and concerns without little ears listening. Meg often opens sessions to other family members as needed, as family is essential to a child’s world. She utilizes the child’s naturally creative mind by use of art therapy and play therapy. In her experience, talk therapy can be a beautiful thing for teenagers and adults; however, children often have a better sense of themselves and their world through play.

Meg graduated from East Tennessee State University with a B.S. in Child Psychology and a M.A. in Counseling. She is currently pursuing licensure in Marriage and Family Therapy and working under the supervision of L. Gordon Brewer, Jr., MEd, LMFT and founder of Kingsport Counseling Associates, PLLC.

Meg also enjoys spending time with her dog, practicing yoga, sketching, knitting, baking, and reading books on a variety of topics.

Meg is accepting new clients and offers a sliding scale fee based on family income.
