Megan Nemetz, MS, LPC-IT 

Megan earned her bachelor’s degree at Central Michigan University in Child Development with minors in Family Studies and Leadership. She completed her master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at UW-Stout the summer of 2020. Megan is currently a licensed Professional Counselor In-Training, and is close to completing her hours for full licensure as a Professional Counselor.

Megan’s primary focus is to work with youth and their families, as well as younger adults. With past employment at a crisis agency and a psychiatric hospital, she has a huge heart for suicide prevention/intervention and is passionate about trauma-based treatment. 

Megan strives to make therapy enjoyable by focusing on autonomy by finding a technique that is effective for each individual client. She utilizes techniques from Play Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Expressive Therapies, as well as many others.  Having a trauma focused mindset, she is cognizant of both what types of traumas are present and also the impact it is having on her clients and their families.

As a born and raised Yooper from across the river in Menominee, MI, she is thrilled to be an advocate for mental health in the community!
