Meagan holds a Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology from Trinity Western University. She has specific training in Observed Experiential Integration (OEI) and Lifespan Integration Therapy, two dynamic body-based trauma interventions that are effective in working with people of all ages to provide deep healing.
Meagan is dedicated specifically to the areas of trauma (especially preverbal trauma) and anxiety with a focus on the therapeutic nature of the parent-child relationship. She is effectively able to work with parents to find a greater understanding of the roots of their child’s experiences, to make sense of difficult behaviours and implement strategies that process and minimize trauma induced responses.
Meagan is actively involved in adoption specific research that seeks to find a greater understanding of the unique challenges that adoptees struggle with and the most efficient and meaningful processes that promote healing. She is passionate about presenting workshops for parents and professionals to further their understanding and knowledge base on a variety of topics.
Meagan has benefited from her experiences with overseas orphanage work and realizes that these experiences were formative in developing a passion for working with children who have experienced caregiver disruptions and other relational trauma. She has been blessed with four amazing children and has experienced the joys and challenges of being a parent! Meagan is thrilled to be working with adoptive families and feels privileged to come along side them in their journey.
