Meagan is a registered clinical counsellor who has an expertise in working with clients who live with chronic diseases in Vancouver BC, near Oak & Broadway.
Balancing life’s stressors and joys can be a difficult task. When you are living with a chronic disease this balancing act is more difficult, and takes more energy. Sometimes a task you wouldn't have give a second thought to before, now requires all the physical, emotional and mental energy you have for the entire day, if not week.
Based on my personal and professional experience, I know that there are ways to support and manage this balancing act of living with chronic illness and I welcome your call.
* I also work with care givers and loved ones who may be struggling on how to best support the person in their life who is living with a chronic disease.
My approach is using a variety of modalities to support and empower clients to trust in their ability to manage and move forward as life presents different issues to balance. I also emphasize that you are the expert in your life, and what you bring into your counselling session is what we work on together. I provide a genuine and empathic space that is warm and non-judgemental. My background includes
- Adlerian therapy Cognitive Behavior Therapy
