About Meaghan

I started studying yoga and Buddhist meditation over 25 years ago to help me with my own mental health struggles and to find more connection and meaning in life. I have been teaching yoga and meditation for over 20 years. After a fulfilling experience of founding and running a community focussed yoga studio in Kitchener- Waterloo, I decided to go to school to become a psychotherapist. I went to Concordia's Liberal Arts College where we read the classics from the Old Testament to Foucault. I also got to study art history, the history of music and the history of science. This heady degree in western european thought helped to anchor studies in eastern philosophy and embodiment practices. From there I went to Guelph's Couples and Family Therapy program which offered an immersive learning experience in relational therapy.

I enjoy supporting people from all faith and non-faith perspectives, political and non-political leanings. Being the descendant of lumberjacks, nurses, and nuns, and having access to professional education and opportunities, I work well across class lines and can bring this perspective into our work together. I have struggled and thrived with my own complex trauma and ADHD symptoms, and bring this personal learning into my work with evidence- based models.

When I am not being a therapist or meditating, I am wandering art galleries, hiking in the woods, making pottery, or watching more television than I care to admit.
