Hi! I'm Megan Furman, LPC, LCPC.

I have a heart for helping people. That's why I became a therapist.

 

Through my years of providing therapy for different people with different struggles, and seeing mental health concerns through various life transitions (along with becoming a parent myself), I realized the need for specialization in this transitionary time of becoming a parent and saw the benefit that specialized help could provide.

 

That's why I became a perinatal therapist.

 

In other words, I'm a psychotherapist who helps people on their journeys to and through parenthood. Yes, I've received specialized training in perinatal mental health and continue to educate myself professionally through formal trainings and consultation with other perinatal therapists which energizes me. But doing the work with my clients also continues to educate and inspire me in this realm of perinatal and parental wellness.

As a therapist, I've been described as warm and supportive, knowledgeable and active.

 

Therapy looks a bit different for each individual, but our time together may include processing and holding of emotions, sorting through what's been helpful for you and what's not serving you, and developing and trying out new coping strategies.

Many people who seek out my services are moms experiencing postpartum depression or anxiety.

Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders affect 1 out of 5 mothers. That's a significant percentage! Thankfully perinatal mental health / maternal mental health are being talked about more, but society still has a way to go in supporting new moms. Perinatal and parental wellness also includes pre-conception, infertility, pregnancy, loss, and parenthood at different stages, not just the first few months after welcoming baby.

 

But perinatal mental health and overwhelmed parents do not only include moms. 

 

1 out of 10 fathers experience postpartum depression. Dads need support too, and can have similar struggles to moms but that often show up differently. And LGBTQ+ parents are at higher risk for developing perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. Here, I make space for every type of parent: however you became (or hope to become) a parent and whoever you are as a person, you're welcome here and I hope I can help.  

Reach out to me so we can chat and see if we'll be a good fit working together.
