We are all simply desiring to be heard and understood. I believe people have the innate ability to resolve their own problems, however, they must become aware in the here and now. There is no judgment for the past, there is hope for the future, and peace in the present. Together we will work through different experiential approaches, customized to increase awareness and acceptance of the present moment. I desire for you to be empowered to create change for your future.
No matter where you have been, where you are now, or where you are going, I believe that therapy is beneficial for all. Together, through talk therapy and experiential therapeutic techniques, we will find peace in the present and hope for tomorrow.
Meaghan grew up in East Texas with parents who were professional helpers. This stirred the desire in her own heart to serve others. Meaghan completed her undergraduate degree at East Texas Baptist University in Marshall, Texas with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. She then moved to Dallas to attend Criswell College, where she is currently finishing up her last year to complete the requirements for a master’s degree in counseling.
During her first year in Dallas, Meaghan served as a caseworker for mothers and their children in Oak Cliff. This year of experience sparked a yearning to serve the Oak Cliff community. She has recently moved to Oak Cliff and works part time as a Café Manager for Davis Street Espresso.
Meaghan has had extensive training in family and child development, social integrative approaches for children with intellectual disabilities, trauma, reprocessing traumatic memories, and the secondary effects of trauma on family and child development.
When Meaghan is not serving coffee or not in the office, she can be found in the Oak Cliff neighborhood(s) with friends, reading a deeply emotional book, or baking a new recipe. She has a passion for service, so you may see her at different community events teaching others about coffee and community. You may also hear her talk about her recent last minute travels or stories of her nieces and nephew.
“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying, “Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner.” I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” – Carl Rogers
