Meg McCormick, LMHCA
I believe that counseling is a journey to self-discovery that you are choosing to stop taking alone. Everything you need is already within you; sometimes it just takes a little guidance -- someone to walk the path with you -- to really make the changes you want to make in your life.
I believe that people are not defined by their diagnoses or by the stories written about their past. They describe ways our past and present affect us, but they don't define us. My goal is to work with you to decide how you want to define yourself and help you live a life that honors those definitions.
I specialize in working with LGBTQIA+ clients, non-monogamous and kinky adults, sex workers, and those with alternative spiritualities. I am passionately sex-positive and body-positive. I also work with people who have acute diagnoses, and I have experience working with folks who have been involuntarily hospitalized.
I understand there is no “one size fits all” approach to counseling, because everyone has their own unique needs and experiences. My values include empathy, acceptance, compassion, and non-judgment. I believe the counseling relationship should be collaborative to ensure we are working to meet your personal needs and goals, and my work draws on a variety of different theories.
Some of the prominent modalities I use are Person-Centered, Attachment Theory, Internalized Oppression, Inclusive Feminist Theory, and Solution-Focused therapy.
