Megan is a Brainspotting Level 2 therapistBrainspotting looks different from typical talk therapy. It is a relational, brain-body, and mindfulness-based practice. It has long-term healing effects for trauma, anxiety, and other issues. Megan is an active member of the Southeastern Brainspotting Institute, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and expanding the use of Brainspotting as an effective therapeutic modality.

The Safe and Sound Protocol is administered using over-the-ear headphones in 30-60-minute increments.
