MEGAN TURNER MS, ALC, NCC
Under the supervision of Melinda Rader, MS, LPC-S

Therapist / Owner of Balanced Life Counseling, LLC

Let’s just say it –  life can be hard, unbalanced, complicated, confusing, and at times... feel a little messy. Remember: you're only human! Sometimes our 'best' simply doesn’t feel enough. I use a compassionate, straightforward approach – mixed with humor and empowerment to help you crush this thing called life! I work with individuals in-person or virtually, providing non-judgmental, unbiased, accepting, and compassionate care to address the multiple layers we have within. Counseling can be vulnerable, uncomfortable, and challenging – yet amazingly rewarding. Allow me to be alongside you while working to achieve your balance in life.

Under the supervision of Melinda Rader, MS, LPC-S

Therapist / Owner of North Star Counseling, LLC

My goal as a counselor is to help you find balance in your life using a holistic approach. Emotional, mental, and spiritual health are all equally important. I will provide a safe space where you feel comfortable processing your emotions and where you will find motivation to grow. I have experience working with substance abuse disorders and can help you with depression, anger, codependency issues, developing healthy boundaries, grief and loss, and trauma-related issues. I utilize a variety of therapies including EMDR, cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness-based, and solution-focused therapy.

Life is challenging with its many twists and turns which can make it difficult to overcome adversities in life. I help young adults and adults to find new solutions to problems they face while also exploring their identity as a person. I work with grief, anxiety, depression, life transitions, parenthood, relationship/family difficulties, trauma, and racial issues/identity. My goal as your counselor is to create a safe environment where you will be able to achieve your goals by listening non-judgmentally and providing unconditional positive regard.
