Welcome! My name is Megan Anderson, but people call me Meg the Therapist. I
have been a successful licensed mental health therapist for almost 20 years. I
began my career as a school counselor and after having my first son, I launched my
own private practice full time. Now, I am a happy wife and mother of three children.
No, really, I am extremely happy!
I realize now that all the challenges I experienced throughout my life taught me how
trauma works and how healing happens. With individuals, couples, groups and
people just like you, I am on a mission to help discovered that we are all the same,
with the same internal struggles; they just present themselves in different ways
because of our history and current circumstances. Over the last two years and in
spite of the current state of the world, I have discovered the best practices that can
help people maintain happiness and energy even during difficult times.
I believe that if we do not make changes in morale and the climate in our homes,
schools and workplace— the next real pandemic will be with mental health. I am
passionate about working with your school system, students, workplace or teams to
create new energy that promotes wellness, kindness and productivity.
TALKS FOR SCHOOL SYSTEMS, ADMINISTRATORS, TEACHERS, STUDENTS
The current climate in high schools and universities is at an all-time low. People are
scared, morale can be low, and any passion that our educators have had for their
careers is being drained. And it is funneling down to our children.
After working in a high school for over 15 years, I have a deep understanding of the
difficulties that administration, faculty and students face on a daily basis. I am
passionate about helping bring new tools, skills and inspiration to schools and all the
important people in them.
If you are dealing with social or emotional struggles on your campus and would like
to empower your community with more positivity and ways to handle stress.
Improving mental health in our schools will not only boost productivity, it is essential
for our future.

TALKS FOR BUSINESSES, NON-PROFITS AND TEAMS
Organizations and employees are facing unprecedented change and stress. COVID
is not just a virus that attacks the body. It attacks the mind and the emotions. Mental
health is an essential area of focus for business and team leaders.
Let me help your company overcome challenges that your teams may be dealing
with. We cannot sweep these issues under the rug. Without addressing mental
health, productivity declines, and motivation wanes.
We are in this together. My current private practice clientele bleeds the same blood.
When I think about my clients, the administrator of a major hospital is suffering the
same way as a hospital receptionist, the same way as my dispensary worker, the
same as my 4th grade teacher and 20 year old college student.
In my talks, your leaders and staff will learn a new way of thinking that includes self-
love, perspective-taking and self-regulation so that we can treat each other and our
customers better. Now is the time to help everyone get back on track.

Conferences and Events
It would be my pleasure to speak at your conference or event. My colorful history,
success as a mental health therapist and knack for story telling makes me relatable,
helpful, and a lot of fun! It is my mission to reach as many people as possible as we
are all struggling in this “place of pandemic”. We are all hurting in the same ways,
our struggles just look different due to our history and current circumstance. But, if
you are breathing, there is a way to change your life, and it is a lot easier than you
think. You don’t need anyone else, just yourself.
Let me share my experience as a therapist who thought I had it all figured out. Until
I discovered, we don’t have to suffer to help others. When you change your internal
monologue and find true self- love, this leads to intense joy that no one can take
from you. When you love yourself, you have the ability to stand in someone else
shoes… and the power of perspective is the next step to constant peace. Bring in
spirit or energy, or anything higher than you…surrender to the possibility
and HAPPINESS is yours.
Let me show you when happens when you go all in on yourself. The only person
stopping you, is you.
