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 am particularly interested in working with women in their 40s and 50s.
Moms, Wives, Women 40+
As women, we are under so much pressure these days to be everything to everyone.
As wives, moms, daughters, sisters, etc. we are constantly bombarded with messages about who we should be.
Let’s take a step back together and look at those roles and expectations. Let’s discover who you are and what you want out of life.
Take a step to learn how to take care of your needs without guilt. With my support and guidance, you will move toward more fulfilling experiences and relationships in your life.
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.
If there is something that is keeping you stuck, we will use an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) approach to help you move beyond worry, sadness or past difficult experiences.
Above all, I will treat you as the expert on your life. We will draw from your inner knowledge to bring about hope and healing.
Before starting my work here in Vancouver, I traveled 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 past 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 Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). 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. ”
