Meg Neet

Hello! I am a counselor in training and a graduate student at Cleveland State University pursuing a master's in Clinical Mental Health & Counseling. I received a B.A. in Psychology at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts. I have a background in community mental health settings, including positions as a domestic violence advocate and trauma/crisis intervention specialist for victims of violent crime. As a queer-identifying adopted Asian American, I’m also passionate about working with fellow members of the LGBTQ+ community and individuals impacted by adoption. 
My work with survivors of various traumatic experiences has helped me appreciate the importance of establishing a strong therapeutic relationship with clients built on counseling pillars of trust, empathy, humor, and compassion. I am committed to providing services through trauma-informed, LGBTQ+ affirming, and sex-positive lenses, practicing multi-cultural sensitivity and awareness, and like Ted Lasso, being curious, not judgmental. I will work to provide space and time for you to feel your feelings and give the thoughts that usually stay quiet the chance to come into the spotlight to be heard, acknowledged, and valued.
I take a humanistic approach to counseling theories and treatment styles, with an emphasis on person-centered, feminist, and narrative theories that acknowledge the client as the expert in their own lives and prioritize unconditional positive regard. I will accept and support you no matter what skeletons in the closet you bring to our counseling table! I also anticipate receiving certification by late Aug. 2024 in eye movement desensitization and reprogramming (EMDR), a treatment most often used to help people process and heal from trauma.
Outside of the office and classrooms, I spend what little but cherished free time I have left exploring Cleveland’s food scenes (there’s very little that a treat from Koko Bakery can’t fix or improve!) and local parks with close friends. I also get furry cuddles by living vicariously through pet owners as a dog/cat sitter.
Thank you for checking out my page and if we meet, I hope I can be a positive part of your journey, either as your counselor or a guide to other counselors and resources you need and deserve!
