Meet the Team
Hi, I’m Meagé Clements, a Licensed Certified Social Worker-Clinical who enjoys working with children, teens, adults and their families. My specialities include supporting clients with managing overwhelming emotions, improving their executive functioning, and improving their relationships with others.
I am trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and DBT-Prolonged Exposure (DBT-PE). My goal is to help you stop feeling stuck and overwhelmed and start guiding you to living a life of pleasure and satisfaction.
My Journey To Becoming a Therapist
As a child, I was not familiar with the benefits of seeking mental health support unless something “bad” happened. Like many others, I relied on avoidance and other unhealthy coping strategies to manage my emotions. I was not able to put words to my own mental health challenges until I met with the first therapist I felt seen and heard by. I was so interested in how someone, who began as a stranger, was able to validate my emotions and acknowledge the intersections of my identity and life experiences. I hoped to one day become that same support for others.
I approach therapy and my work with clients with compassion and without judgment, as I know how difficult it can be to seek and accept support from others. I am passionate about supporting clients in practicing self-compassion, challenging perfectionism, setting healthy boundaries with others, and prioritizing their physical and mental health.
I have genuine compassion and curiosity for people and their lived experiences and bring a supportive and encouraging energy to sessions.
I have a natural ability to:
- Empathize with people’s experiences
- Accept others for who they are and in their current life circumstances
- Help clients heal from their past and manage the present
- Be flexible on the path of personal discovery and healing
People who know me often say I am a good listener with a calm demeanor who is able to be fully present for people’s stories.
