Megan Secrest, MSW, LCSW

Hi! My name is Megan and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who provides mental health counseling (both virtually and in-person) to the people of Oklahoma, and soon Vermont.  I am the owner of Gift of Grit Counseling, a native Oklahoman, and a wife and mother. I'm fond of memes, mindless fun romance novels, humor, and cuss words (because sometimes no other word will do). Chips and salsa are my love language, and if that were a socially acceptable/ethical way to accept payment for therapy, I totally would.

My specializations are trauma, anxiety, infertility, miscarriage and infant loss.  I have lived experience with infertility, as well as miscarriage and infant loss. I understand those waters, having navigated them myself, so I can wade through them with you too. I also work really well with highly sensitive people, and neurodivergent women.

I live in Guthrie with my husband of seven years, our cutie patootie kiddo, and our two cats, Ember and Butters. Sometimes, Ember joins us in the background of my sessions, so I've included her picture here too, since she is often my co-therapist. I enjoy gardening, although I forget to water every summer about mid-July, and watching cleaning/organizing videos on YouTube. My therapy style can be described as funny (with a touch of sarcasm), direct, vulnerable and warm. I consider therapy to be a service, and I want it to be a service that is enjoyable, targeted, and successful for you.
