For clients with more complicated problems that may be associated with mental health diagnosis, Dr. Meggers-Wright is dedicated to providing evidence-based treatments that are supported by science as being effective in producing measurable change. Evidence-based treatments are typically short-term and are flexible enough to respect that every person is a unique individual.
Dr. Meggers-Wright believes that you do not need to qualify for a mental health diagnosis to benefit from one-on-one appointments or group classes. It is normal and human to experience stresses and life changes, or to simply have questions about an issue or event. She offers single-session appointments and short-term group classes for “everyday” challenges.
