Megan Pavek, MSW, LICSW

School-Based Therapist; Kenny/Armatage Elementary

I believe in the power of relationships and connection as an avenue for growth and healing. When people feel heard, validated, and understood, it makes all the difference. I want therapy to be a collaborative experience where we work together to identify the goals and steps to get to the desired outcome. I recognize my role as a therapist is temporary and I want to help individuals and families strengthen their connection and build their skill sets, so that their progress in therapy is sustainable beyond our work together. I understand people through a strengths-based, trauma informed lens and utilize evidence based strategies like TF-CBT and family therapy in my work. I truly enjoy getting to know my clients and the opportunity to be part of their journey.
