Megan Headley, MHC


Megan has been drawn to the complexity and potential of the human mind ever since her undergraduate years studying neuropsychology at the University of Virginia. Two decades and a dozen jobs later, she is still fascinated by the brain and its elaborate role in behavior, motivation, and relationships. Megan believes that awareness of our inner worlds is the key to mental and physical wellbeing, and that feeling in sync with ourselves enables us to truly connect with others.
Having managed diverse teams in her work producing art shows and running restaurants, Megan views her winding career path as a deep well of invaluable insights and passion for people. She relies upon this and the resilience gained through life experiences with relocating, divorce, single parenthood, and family illness as she furthers her studies at Northwestern University.
Armed with a culinary degree, sommelier credentials, and archives of published writing, Megan’s creative pursuits all center around digging into that indescribable essence of life that makes us feel a part of something bigger.
Therapeutic Approach
While we are pretty good at using our rational minds to figure out why we feel the way we do, it is only by exploring our emotions and our bodies that we can shift how we feel. By learning to tolerate difficult feelings instead of cutting off from them or allowing yourself to be hijacked by them, you will become more empowered in your life and relationships.
Megan distills the often hard to grasp concept of mindfulness to help you to reconcile your past in order to live more fully in the present.
Merging Eastern philosophy with Western techniques applicable to the myriad demands of today’s urban life, Megan guides individuals, couples, and parents towards their most authentic selves to actualize more joyful, meaningful, integrated lives.
