I am…

  • Open-minded
  • Supportive
  • Direct
  • Balanced

As the Founding Director of Louisville Mindfulness Center, mindfulness and meditation are a big part of my practice.  I have found this approach calming and centering for clients who feel “scattered” or “overthink” things.  This is a simple and straightforward approach that does wonders for adults dealing with anger, depression, anxiety, and relationship issues. It gives you tools for your toolbox so you are prepared to handle challenging situations as they arise.

Since this toolbox of tools is so popular with my clients – many of them refer to them as “Megan-isms” – I’ve begun referring to the toolbox as the Mindfulness Mindset™. Essentially, these are simple ways to see your situation from multiple perspectives and tools to utilize when you need them to deal with all of life’s stressors.

For the last few years, I’ve been honored to be named one of Three Best Rated’s Best Marriage Counselor’s in Louisville. My work with couples came out of my expertise working with adults who experience anxiety and panic, are easily irritable or frustrated, or have been told they have “anger issues”.  These issues often bleed into all aspects of our lives from our relationships, our parenting, our work, how we view ourselves, etc. The work I do is very holistic, taking into account all areas of your life.

I also have some cool PRESS you can check out: HERE!

Let’s work together! I look forward to sharing all these skills and tools with you to help you live your most optimal life.


A Little About Me

I was born in California (Santa Cruz!) and grew up in Seattle. In the late ‘90s, I graduated from the University of Washington – Go Dawgs – and moved to Arizona. After living in Tucson for a bit, I decided to get my Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from the Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. From there I moved to Austin, Texas for 11 years and now I’m back in Louisville (which I love!).

I own Louisville Mindfulness Center where our mission is to help you find peace and joy within yourself and your relationships. We do this through therapy, mindfulness education, and creativity from a mindfulness-based perspective.

I practice therapy in the states in which I am licensed, Kentucky and Texas, and love teaching mindfulness to all people, hence the development of the Mindfulness Mindset™.

I have loved living all across the United States and have been lucky enough to travel the world. I love meeting new people and exploring new cultures. When I’m not teaching mindfulness, providing media contributions, attending public speaking events or board meetings, you’ll find me being silly with my family, reading (a lot!), practicing yoga (a little), and being creative (always!).

I look forward to working with you!
