Megan Sweeney, LPC
Licensed Professional Counselor
Certified Substance Abuse Counselor
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Substance Abuse Counselor. I have been practicing for 22 years providing individual, couples, family, and group counseling services to primarily adolescents and adults in a variety of different setting to include Virginia Beach City Public Schools, Seton Youth Shelters, and in private practice settings. I pride myself on establishing rapport with clients in order to assist them in tackling some of life’s most difficult obstacles. This rapport building creates a therapeutic environment in which good work occurs to help achieve optimal emotional growth. Specific attention is given to establishing a healthy mindset and positive self talk in combatting life’s obstacles. Presenting concerns in which I have a strong knowledge of and experience in working with both adolescents and adults include: Anxiety and depression Eating Disorders Substance Abuse/Dependence Issues Attention Deficit Disorder Grief and Loss Gender Identity Issues Parent-Child-Family Conflict Marital Discord/Conflict As a mom of two very busy teenagers, I empathize with people’s busy schedules and do my best to accommodate client’s scheduling needs. I primarily offer weekday/evening appointments; however, I also offer weekend appointments as my schedule allows to help those client’s that have difficulty meeting during the week. It is my strong belief that scheduling should never be a deterrent to get therapy. Should you choose me as your therapist, we will work together to find the right schedule for you!
