Meagan Dye is a licensed professional counselor with experience working with substance use disorder, anxiety, depression, trauma, shame, and psychotic disorders. Meagan considers safety to be one of the most important features of a counseling relationship and the foundation needed for change. Her approach allows you to examine your concerns through a therapeutic and relational lens, while also integrating a social justice perspective that considers what else could be impacting your wellness such as family and generational patterns, cultural factors, and/or systems of oppression.

Meagan uses a variety of approaches based on individual client needs including CBT, mindfulness, and relational therapies. She recently participated in training in EMDR and is excited to offer this modality as it allows clients to reprocess trauma in a way that does not depend on traditional “talk therapy.”

Meagan identifies as a white, queer, ciswoman and counselor. She is personally dedicated to anti-racism and continuously uncovering her own biases and dismantling oppressive ideas and practices in her life. She considers herself a work in progress, willing to take risks, make mistakes and listen in order to grow and create change. Meagan is committed to showing up authentically and wants to co-create change with her clients.

In her free time, she loves to spend time with her loved ones and to pursue her passions, one of which is staring adoringly at her regal, but intermittently irritable, house cat. The other is pretending she has new hobbies, purchasing items to start making things, only to never open the boxes.
