Megan Weber MA, LPC

 

I’m so glad you landed here!  My journey began several years ago.  I have always been someone who raced to the next stage in my life.  From high school, to college, grad school and my first real job.  I wanted to quickly get to “that place” where I felt like I was finally an adult and had it all together.  Unfortunately, life often has other plans.  After the devastating loss of my father and then being struck with a chronic illness, I knew it was time to slow down and actually begin to enjoy the life I was living.  So I started Nourishing Eden as a blog where I could share my journey toward a healthier lifestyle.

When I started my own private practice, the name took on a whole different meaning for me.  “Eden” to me is a symbol of sacredness, wholeness, an oasis filled with beauty and flourishing with growth. It became a symbol of what I wanted to strive toward at the core of who I was.

What if you started viewing yourself that way?  Like you actually mattered. Like you were enough.  Like you were worth it.

How would your life change if you nourished yourself mind, body and soul?

That is the whole premise of my work.  To empower you to make the very best choices for your life.  Helping you to live your life on purpose, instead of on repeat.

This can look like:

 

-feeling like your old self again (or better than your old self!)

-discovering why certain areas of your life seem to be “stuck”

-discovering why the same patterns keep showing up over and over again

-gaining confidence to make your own decisions, and say no to what doesn’t fit

-caring less about the opinions of others

-feeling more in control of your own life

My approach is based on the strengths you already have inside you.  I view therapy as a team effort.  I’m here to guide you, and help you rediscover what is already there.  I like to incorporate mind-body exercises into session such as meditation, relaxation and visualization exercises as well as art when appropriate.  I will provide you with practical strategies that you can easily try at home.

My experience in the field has been quite diverse.  I worked in the alternative school setting for six years in Minneapolis and the suburbs of Chicago, with children ranging from pre-k through high school.  Most of which had significant behavior and emotional struggles.  I then worked in a group practice and was able to expand my knowledge base to adults.  I am so excited to be serving back in my home state of Wisconsin!

I am currently serving the pre-teen through adult population who may be experiencing feelings of anxiety, low self-esteem/self-worth, or stress of school, home or work.  If you are interested in working together and want to know more, please view my connect page to learn how to get in touch.

    P.S. Have you studied anywhere? What books/resources have made the most profound impact on you and your health?

  3. Thanks for reading Hilda! I have a master’s degree in counseling psychology, but my second passion is health and nutrition. I read pretty much whatever I can get my hands on in this area. A few of my favorite’s of the moment are: Mind Over Medicine (Lissa Rankin), I Though It Was Just Me (Brene Brown) and I’m currently reading the Untethered Soul (Michael Singer) which is amazing!
