Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is a way to hear one’s own voice more clearly. By talking about present difficulties and understanding, sometimes, where they are rooted, we afford ourselves the ability to make new choices about where to head next.  This may involve talking with another person, or changing different aspects of our current situation.  If we do this with mindful intent, we can experience the joys of living in the moment, and appreciating each day. This takes practice, repetition and guidance, particularly if it is new.

Meg practices psychotherapy using a variety of techniques, according to the needs of the adolescents and adults with whom she works.

It has long been Meg’s belief that psychotherapy should be as available as medical help.  People should be able to have annual check-ups, and if issues arise during these visits, they should be able to see a counselor for more visits.  As with medical issues, sometimes a visit or two will resolve the issue, and sometimes more extensive treatment is involved.  The more therapy is viewed as a normal response to a situation out of balance the more quickly people will seek treatment. As with medical issues, the earlier the intervention, the more easily the knot is untangled.

Meg earned her Master’s in Social Work from Boston University in 1983, and has practiced in a variety of settings, including inpatient medical, and inpatient psychiatric hospitals, a residential mental health facility, and private practice.


Executive Coaching

Executives and managers are best able to harness strengths when they are able to clearly identify what they are, and what the impact is on others. A variety of assessments, including a strong 360 degree feedback, sets up a dynamic conversation between executive and coach, and forms the basis for setting goals for a coaching contract.

Based on Meg’s experience as an Executive Coach, she has helped many clients in a variety of areas. Some of these include, but are not limited to:

  • Building confidence in decision making
  • Learning how healthy teams work, and how to develop them
  • Increasing self confidence and self awareness
  • Understanding how to motivate others
  • Identifying skills needed for future assignments
  • Learning effective ways of communicating to every member in an organization
  • Appreciating the opportunity of conflict resolution

Capitalizing on each leader’s ideas, creativity, and knowledge is an individual endeavor,

and each experience is tailored to that individual or team. The positive ripples outward from one person gaining confidence are evidenced by increased productivity, and multiplied with each person who is maximizing his or her role.

Meg partners with the organization to optimize feedback, and generate greater collaboration. She ensures follow up so that gains are consolidated and maintained.

She has worked with such organizations as Executive Transit Leadership Program, Babson College’s Coaching for Leadership and Teamwork Program, Orchard House, Boston Children’s Chorus, Wayside Youth and Family Support Network.

She holds certificates in Executive Coaching and Organizational Consulting from the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology.
