Megan Russ, LCMHC

Practicing Since: 2014

Sometimes life doesn’t go as we planned. As a result, stress occurs along with anxiety, depression, and many other things. We are not meant to handle life alone. We are to bear one another’s burdens. Counseling allows a caring professional to step into your life during a difficult time and walk on the journey with you. Meg has a true passion for helping others overcome their struggles. She interweaves biblical principles with counseling theories to provide integrative care to her clients. She enjoys working with children, adolescents, teenagers, and women. When working with children, she provides child-centered play therapy.

Meg is a Christian counselor and incorporates Biblical principles into counseling.

God wants to be involved in all areas of our lives and that includes the areas we struggle with. She provides clients with the tools needed to be successful in overcoming their struggles.  Collaboratively, she works with clients to create and meet goals. Meg will walk with you through the journey you are on.
