Hi! I’m Megan, therapist and founder of Love Heal Grow Counseling.
We have worked with hundreds of couples and individuals in our community to improve their relationships. Sex is such an integral part of relationships and we think it’s important that we’re able to support our clients in their sexual well-being.
Our clients tell us they feel comfortable talking with us about topics that aren’t always easy to talk about — like sex. We’re glad to hear this because sex is a normal and important part of life. Sexual issues are very common and you don’t need to worry about surprising us with whatever is troubling you–we’ve heard everything.
Additionally, I want you to know that I’m a member of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists, working towards certification. Our therapists have advanced training in sexual issues that most therapists don’t get in grad school.
We look forward to hearing from you if you’d like to explore sex therapy.
We’re ready to help you enhance your sexual well-being.
