Megan Theroux, LMFT
For as long as she can remember, Megan Theroux has had a passion for healing and being part of the journey towards recovery for individuals, families, and couples alike. Throughout her career, Megan has been influenced by numerous family therapy and couple theorists. Recently, she has become interested in Richard Schwartz’s work on the Internal Family Systems Model (IFS) and uses this as inspiration in her work. In preparation for her role as Family Therapist, Megan has been trained on the Internal Family Systems Model, Gottman Level I, DBT, MDFT, and ABFT. When working with clients who struggle with regulating their mood and accessing copy skills to improve relationships, she uses DBT to decrease maladaptive coping patterns.
Megan is most passionate about treating adolescents and families who are impacted by substance abuse, mood disturbance, and/or involvement with the legal system. She originally chose to become a therapist because of her experience working with a great therapist during her adolescent years. This opportunity allowed her space to be herself and introduced her to a safe, healthy way to experience and deal with all kinds of emotions.
