Counseling for Busy Folks Who Want Freedom

"The purpose of psychotherapy is to set people free." -Rollo May

You're probably searching for therapists online because you feel like it's "now or never." You're ready to finally be free from your past, your anxiety, your trauma or the weight of your grief. Typically people reach out to me because they are experiencing one or more of the issues below:

  • You feel disconnected from your goals, and you feel like you're failing in the 'real world.' 

  • If binge-watching early 2000s sitcoms (The Office is my favorite!), and scrolling mindlessly on social media was an Olympic sport, you'd be a gold medalist.

  • Trauma and anxiety have made your brain their playground, and they are destroying your peace.

  • You feel like the people in your life don't understand the burdens you're carrying.

  • You're an overtired, touched-out, sensory overloaded mom.

  • You're tired of the constant worrying about worst case scenarios.

  • You've been trying to achieve the future and family you've always dreamed of, and something is holding you back, whether that's miscarriage, infant loss, or infertility. 

  • You want to work through the unhelpful, unforgiving messages from your childhood so you can love who you are, at your core.

If any of the above points sound like your experience, then you're in the right place.  Welcome, my name is Megan Secrest, the owner of Gift of Grit Counseling. I believe that things that happen to us contribute to our grit/resilience. I help clients uncover their true selves and find joy amidst the chaos. I'm a wife and mother, and I get the pressures that modern life puts on all of us. If you want someone who you can cry with, cuss with, and then get down to your deepest fears and create new scripts for your life, then I'm the therapist for you. With virtual and in-person therapy appointments, we can accommodate your busy schedule and get your healing journey started now.
