Megan Beard

Licensed Professional Counselor

“My passion is helping children, adolescents, and their families. As a parent myself, I know that raising children can be as stressful as it is rewarding. I love helping families work together to build stronger bonds and achieve their life goals. My ideal client would be a family with school-aged children in need of guidance on parenting, communication, and how best to bond with their children. When it comes to children and adolescents, I have experience in treating a wide range of mental health issues, from anxiety and depression to attachment and trauma-related issues.
