Pronouns: She/Her

Meg is an empathetic and friendly psychologist whose practice is guided by values of trust, partnership, and authenticity. She enjoys working with both adolescents and adults to make meaningful change in peoples’ lives.


Meg believes that the most important foundation for a successful therapeutic experience is the relationship itself. She focuses on being understanding, non-judgemental and respectful to help clients feel safe to discuss their difficulties. Meg endeavours to understand the factors that influence and maintain a client’s situation, while respecting that the client is the expert in their own life.

Meg likes to collaboratively create goals from the outset and provide an open dialogue to review and monitor these throughout the course of therapy. She likes to be flexible in her approach, walking alongside each person and ensuring that the therapeutic work is comfortable and ultimately guided by the client.
