MEGAN LUTHER, Psychology Student
Megan is a practicum student in the final stages of receiving her Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology (MACP) from Yorkville University and has completed Clinical Specializations in Grief Counselling, Bereavement Counselling, and Trauma Counselling from Wilfrid Laurier University. She is also a 700-hour certified yoga and meditation guide with over eight years of guiding practices and leading workshops and retreats. She teaches trainings in mindfulness specialties of Yoga Nidra and alternative healing modalities that center on core belief systems and thought processes. Through her studies, she has focused on new models of practice such as Integrative Trauma Treatment, Trauma-Centred Psychotherapy, Structural Dissociative Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, and Poly Vagal Techniques to customize treatment plans unique to each client’s individual goals. She is excited to support blending bodywork within her therapeutic offering to help clients become aware of and understand what is happening in their bodies and to then connect to their thoughts, emotions, and behaviours.
Megan is grateful to spend time in therapeutic conversations with courageous people that are reflectively navigating life transitions, mental and physical illness experiences, and the many complexities of life and relationships. She believes that our relationship with self and others matter most in life and nurtures a desire to facilitate healing through work with individuals. Relationships are journeys full of ups and downs and twists and turns, and Megan believes all relationships can benefit from some compassionate support and non-judgemental guidance along the way. She hopes that those she is privileged to work with will experience renewed intimate and committed relationships of the highest quality.
Megan is especially passionate about working with individuals during important transitions and difficulties in their lives, lack of meaning and purpose, mental and physical illness, grief, loss, trauma, and addictions, as well as the perinatal evolution into parenthood and family life. These can be our most tender and challenging life experiences and vulnerability is an inherent part of them due to the immersion in reflection and growth. It takes a lot of strength to seek professional support and Megan hopes that the clients she is honoured to work with will experience self-compassion, symptom reduction, and the meaning-making required for healthy self-care and functioning.
