Meg M Garrison, MA, LCPC, MT-BC, NCC, Counselor in Mendota
I am passionate about helping individuals, couples, children and families in the journey to navigate through personal challenges. I offer a safe, confidential and comfortable setting to share your concerns. I aim to assist in the relief of depression, anxiety, shattered relationships and/or other concerns you may have. I support you as you learn coping strategies that you can use to deal with your personal challenges. I can also give outside perspectives of options you can explore.
I work together with you to seek underlying causes for the personal challenges that bring you to counseling. We explore family patterns and hidden feelings, thoughts, and emotions. Whether you need short-term support or long-term therapy, I am available as needed.
I relate well with children and adolescents in addition to adults. I offer creative therapeutic tasks to gain the trust of younger clients. I am qualified in offering various therapy techniques to use as you move forward in your emotional healing.
