I’m Megan. I’m the highly imperfect “Shrink” behind this blog. For the past four years, I’ve worked as a Registered Clinical Counsellor at a post-secondary institution in Vancouver. During the privileged process of seeing 5 clients a day, I’ve heard countless stories of resilience and triumph, heartbreak and loss. I’ve been able to stand beside people during some of their darkest moments, and witness overwhelming growth and change.
had an existential crisis felt restless for adventure, so I moved to New York City. We’ll see how long that lasts…
Regardless of the context, one of the many gifts my clients give me is insight into the common human experience: we all suffer. Through my writing, I hope to combine my 7 years of post-secondary education in psychology, biology, and philosophy with my own personal and professional experience to send “wisdom” your way (I use “wisdom” facetiously, as it’s up to you as to whether or not you consider the information useful)! To protect the confidentiality of my clients, I will only use broad references as to what goes on in session.
Prior to my profession as a psychotherapist, I was a personal trainer and yoga and nutrition advisor. I believe strongly in viewing well-being holistically, but I also believe in moderation and indulgence, and these values will undoubtedly be reflected in my posts. A few other things you might learn about me along the way? I consider myself to be a Buddhist, Existentialist, (mediocre) athlete, activist, extrovert, curious mind, young professional, independent woman and reformed perfectionist. I welcome feedback, comments, and discussion!
