About Me

Hello! I'm so glad you're here. My name is Megan Vaccaro and I am a Licensed Master Social Worker from, "The Great Lakes State"...Michigan. I graduated in 2000 from Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. I have been counseling in my current position for 16 years. I work with individuals, couples and families on issues such as depression, anxiety, grief and loss, behavior issues, family conflict, trauma/abuse and parenting issues. My treatment approach includes cognitive behavioral therapy which works with challenging distorted thinking, aka-thinking traps (we all get tripped up with this). It's good to know how to challenge negative thoughts in order to have more positive experiences. I also use dialectical behavior therapy which includes work on mindfulness, distress tolerance (stress will happen..what do we do about it?), emotion regulation and interpersonal effectiveness. I thrive on problem solving, so, it makes sense that solution focused therapy is also used. I will take a non-judgmental stance allowing you to feel comfortable sharing whatever it is that brought you to me. I care about people and know that we all go through struggles in life. I approach people with respect and honor as I often think how I would want to be treated or how I would want my kids to be treated in the counseling environment. I value effective communication and place a high priority on this.
