Are you feeling lost, hopeless, or stuck in a rut?
Sometimes you don’t know what to do or who you can reach out to for help when you’re hurting.
Whether you are going through a personal struggle or having problems in your relationships, you don’t have to go it alone.
I will walk with you in your pain and help you find healing. Let’s work together to help you move past your pain, build healthy relationships, and lead a joyful life!
Who I work with
Since 2008, I’ve had the privilege of helping a variety of people positively change their lives for the better.
Through my years in the counseling world, I learned that I am most passionate about working with adult individuals and couples and am particularly interested in working with men and women over 50 and Military Veterans.
Are you and your partner having trouble connecting? Are you finding it hard to have a conversation that doesn’t lead to a fight? Have affairs, career changes, lack of trust, or life transitions left you unable to communicate with the person who matters to you most?
I love working with couples (especially older couples and couples in the military) learn (or re-learn) how to communicate with each other and reignite their bond.
My primary method of treatment is Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) which is based on 25 years of research and is considered one of the most effective treatments for healing damage in relationships.
No matter what you and your spouse are facing, you can learn how to talk to each other again and work towards rediscovering your loving connection.
Premarital or Re-marital Counseling
Are you preparing for marriage and want to make sure you and your partner are on the same page? Are you marrying for a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th time and want to leave the baggage from previous relationships behind?
Let’s work together to discover what you will need to make this union a lasting bond.
Using well-established communication strategies and assessments such as Myers Briggs, the 5 Love Languages, etc. you will discover how you can best love your spouse and how they can best love you.
Men and Women 50+
Some of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had in counseling have been with individuals and couples over 50.
Whether you are a caregiver, an empty-nester, or a sufferer of chronic pain, I want to help you adjust to new stages and help you live life to the fullest.
Military Veterans and Military Family Members
As a Military wife and counselor of Military personnel, I understand the adjustment from Military to civilian life.
Frequent relocations, complex Military systems, and adjusting from Military to civilian life are all areas that can be major stressors for you and your relationships.
With my experience and specialized training in working for the Military, I can help you navigate these challenges while preserving your relationships and peace of mind.
How I Work
My style of counseling is down-to-earth and personal. I use a variety of techniques and tailor my approach to the needs of my clients. My job is not to give advice or judge you.
As your counselor, I will listen and offer insight and support. I will also challenge thoughts and actions that may be holding you back from your goals.
Above all, you are the expert on your own life and I will help you use this inner knowledge to bring about hope and healing.
While traveling the country as a Military wife, I had the privilege to work with diverse populations from inner city Tacoma, WA to rural Georgia. The majority of my work has been in serving Military personnel and their families.
I hold a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from St. Martin’s University in Olympia, WA and a Bachelor’s of Science in Human Development from Warner Pacific College in Portland, OR.
I am trained in evidenced-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for Couples. These methods are based on decades of research.
My Personal Life
I am very excited to be home in the Northwest after traveling around the country for 5 years while my husband served in the Army.
My husband, daughter, and I love going on hikes in the mountains, watching movies, helping out at our church and visiting the zoo.

Megan Taylor, LMHCA
What my clients say:
“Megan Taylor of Integrity Counseling is a very caring and devoted person. When I feel like the world is closing in, it’s such a relief to remember I have her in my corner. She’s patient, kind supportive but most of all she’s dedicated. Her type of dedication that helps me with my personal issues, is rare in this day and age. I’ve had psychologists, psychiatrists and even other therapists assist with what happened to me, yet it was Megan that pulled me back from the abyss. I STRONGLY recommend anyone who’s having a tough time, to sit down and talk with her. Take my word for it, she makes the day brighter!”
– Male, Vancouver, WA
“The best thing about talking with Megan is that she challenges me to think deeper. When I do, I find out what is really going on inside me and then I can work on it.”
– Female (58 years old) Portland, OR
“My wife and I have learned a lot in our counseling with Megan. It’s great because I’ve been able to use the tools I’ve learned for my relationship with my wife to help my soldiers when they have problems. ”
