Therapist in Princeton Junction, New Jersey, Megan Teperman, MS, LAC, NCC

Megan Teperman, MS, LAC, NCC

Megan is a Licensed Counselor and Nationally Certified Counselor. She graduated from Monmouth University with an MS in Mental Health Counseling. She gained experience from various settings: vocational rehabilitation, behavioral & mental health, grief counseling and has worked with adults, young adults, teens, and young children in OP, IOP, and PHP levels of care.

Her patient’s well-being is the ultimate concern. Developing trust to build a therapeutic relationship that allows the client to feel supported and safe to express themselves is important. To help this bond build, Megan utilizes employing unconditional positive regard, promoting acceptance while encouraging change and growth, as well as utilizing humor when appropriate. Her experience in helping clients with different concerns varies among those who are struggling with, but not limited to: depression, anxiety, experiencing difficulties with transitions through life stages or events, limited emotional awareness, family and relationship dynamic struggles, and career and college planning. These experiences have been shaped through various skills and techniques. Skills that are focused on include: promoting the use of coping skills to attain short and long term goals, mindfulness, grounding, and meditative practices, encouraging self-care and accountability, enforcing the client to be empowered and to learn self-reliance through various techniques. Such techniques (theories) utilized include (but are not limited to): CBT, family systems, humanistic therapy, and mindfulness, as well as maintaining a multicultural perspective.

Getting creative with therapy can seem scary and non-traditional, but Megan will help figure out what works best for the client. Sometimes, ‘growing out of your comfort zone’ can help with thinking outside of the box and might even allow for a new perspective!

Megan likes to spend her self-care time with friends and family. She enjoys hiking, being outside in nature and exploring new places, taking pictures of bugs and landscapes, and trying out new trails! She also enjoys spending time investing in her home- such as gardening, fixing up a room, or building something useful. She values the importance of balancing her time for self-care and recreation.
