Meet Megan

My “Philosophy of Care” is that one cannot take care of others if they do not take care of themselves first.

Hello! I’m Megan Newkirk.

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor who works primarily with adolescents and adults. I help my clients reconnect with themselves and get back on track to where they want to be, both emotionally and physically. My vision is to provide a safe place for my clients and to encourage and support my clients’ goals.

I earned a Master of Science degree in Clinical Psychology from Murray State University and I am licensed to practice in the state of Illinois. I have experience with both residential and outpatient treatment and I have worked with depression, anxiety, LGBTQ, trauma, eating disorders, and a variety of other areas. I prefer to use an eclectic approach, as I believe each individual is unique and responds differently to treatment.

I value self-care and self-acceptance and wish to empower wellness within each individual. Outside of my therapy role, I like to spend time with family and friends and relax with my dog as these are self-care techniques for me personally. I strive to focus on myself and take care of my needs so that I can be present and supportive during therapy. My “Philosophy of Care” is that one cannot take care of others if they do not take care of themselves first.

Best Regards,
