Dominant culture messages about what success looks like and who gets valued can leave us feeling anywhere from lonely, self-critical and lost, to more deeply injured and assaulted. Additionally, when we have survived relationships that cause harm, it is difficult to find solid footing. I roll up my sleeves with my clients, as they each discover and define for themselves what makes them valuable, powerful and joyful. It is a sincere honor to offer creativity, humor and compassion while accompanying each of my clients on their healing journeys.
Megan Wickman, MSW, LCSW, accompanies adults and adolescents across gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation and relationship configuration spectrums. She believes that while healing the wounds of trauma can be grueling work, through connection and care individuals can transform their pain into healing. She nurtures empowerment and growth by helping individuals build self-confidence and gain a stronger sense of community. She affirms individuals’ dignities, honors mutuality and accountability in relationships, and promotes insight, resiliency and self-care.
