Megan Duckles, MS LMFT
We all face challenges in our lives. Sometimes we get through them easily and sometimes we get stuck. Sometimes the thoughts of past challenges stick with us and influence our day-to-day activities. I believe that it can be helpful to talk through these thoughts and situations to gain clarity and decide how you want to move forward. I see my role as being a supportive, non-judgmental, safe place to explore your concerns. Everyone’s needs are different, but I can help you make plans for changes in your behaviors or to find a new way of thinking about difficulties. You are the one to decide where we start and what goals you would like to accomplish in our time together.
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I try to look at many aspects to help guide changes that acknowledge the relationships and connections in your life. I also work to identify patterns in thoughts or behaviors that if changed may lead to a healthier lifestyle. Overall, I remain strength-based and solution-focused as we approach your goal attainment. I place a lot of value in the strength of a therapeutic relationship. I want you to feel like I am the person you can talk to and work with to improve yourself.
I have worked in a community based mental health clinic and in a primary care clinic at a large medical institution. I work with individuals, couples, families, and with groups. I have experience working with depression, anxiety, anger issues, relationship issues, family dynamics, and trauma. I am trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and have experience helping teens work through traumatic events. I especially enjoy working with teens and their parents.
Please give me a call and we can work together to help you more forward. Leave me a message at (608) 255-8838 ext. * key or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name and phone number in any correspondence.
