Description (if desired)
GET TO KNOW ME
Meg McLaughlin, M.A., L.M.H.C.
I am an independent therapist working primarily within two models of counseling: Emotionally Focused Therapy and Narrative Therapy. I am passionate about helping every person with whom I work to create satisfying and meaningful lives.
I have been working as a therapist since 1999 beginning my professional work as an extern with Group Health Cooperative and then opening my independent practice in 2000. In the last few years I have been specializing in working with couples and families using Emotionally Focused Therapy in conjunction with my significant background in Narrative Therapy.
While I bring my areas of expertise in my work as a therapist, I also bring my deep conviction that the people with whom I work are the experts in their own lives. I endeavor to work in partnership with people to identify ways problems have affected their lives—and strategize ways to help them regain control over their lives. I work collaboratively examining negative interaction patterns and in particular looking to uncover life experiences that contradict these problems—contradictions that may provide ways for people to take back control of their lives. You can expect me to be authentic and respectful, sometimes crying along with you, sometimes laughing.
