About Me

A Healing Place experience

Hello and welcome. I am Therapist Merideth, owner and operator of A Healing Place Counseling. A Healing Place was born out of my dream of providing compassionate, effective counseling for people struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, and poor relationships with themselves and others. I have made it my purpose in life to help those who are struggling find relief from their suffering, and I wholeheartedly believe this is possible for everyone through the development of adaptive skills and self compassion and acceptance!

In therapy with me, clients can expect to be treated respectfully as we work together to identify your unique goals to achieve the healing and growth you are seeking.  I strive to create a caring and empathic environment, while at the same time challenging enough to help you grow. I use a combination of techniques based in emotionally focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, compassion focused therapy, and mindfulness. In other words, I teach you the skills you need to approach your specific pain with acceptance and kindness so you can work courageously to end your suffering.

In 2012 I completed my formal education and training in family therapy at the College of William and Mary. Since that time I have had the privilege of working with a broad range of people in various stages of mental health treatment which included in-home therapy, mental health skills building services, residential treatment, and outpatient therapy in private practice. I enjoy working with people from all different backgrounds who want to improve their self-esteem, coping skills, and the quality of their lives in general.  Contact me today and let's talk about how I may be able help you!
