Nationally Certified Counselor (University of Illinois)
Receiving her Master’s Degree in Counseling from the University of Illinois in 2003, Meredith holds extensive experience working in the field of trauma. She is skilled in working with adolescents, men, and women who have survived domestic violence, sexual abuse, and/or childhood trauma. Furthermore, she has broad experience working with first responders, including law enforcement and medical personnel, who have witnessed trauma through their own crisis response. With an understanding that family and friends of survivors are also secondarily affected by trauma, she is able to provide guidance and support for these needs as well.
Certified by the National Board of Certified Counselors, Meredith is further dedicated to providing counseling in the areas of stress management, positive body image and self-esteem, healthy coping skills, positive parenting, and healthy communication. She is committed to facilitating healing, empowering the individual, and providing supportive guidance in a warm and nonjudgmental environment. Through her holistic approach to health, she believes one’s mind, body, and spirit are interconnected. She seeks to integrate these aspects of one’s being to foster a healthy, thriving, meaningful life.
Meredith is married with two children and loves her time with them as a family. She enjoys hiking, running, biking, playing sports, attending sports games, gardening – anything outside – as well as reading, yoga, and spending time with friends.
