About this Service

Welcome to Better Help! Thank you for taking a step in putting yourself first. My name is Megan Alspaugh and I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Kansas and Missouri. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Social Welfare at the University of Kansas and my master’s degree in Social Work at The University of Missouri – Kansas City. I have 6 years of experience working as therapist and school social worker. I have worked with clients ranging in age from 5 years old to adult, in Kansas and Missouri.

I have worked with varying treatment concerns including depression, anxiety, panic disorders, relationship conflicts, ADD/ADHD, self-harm, school concerns, parenting/family conflict, trauma, and or emotional abuse. I have used interventions such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, solution-focused therapy, strength perspective, and client-centered therapy.

My therapeutic approach is based on rapport and empathy. I consider the client/therapist relationship to be the most important aspect in counseling. I believe in treating all with respect and compassion, and I don’t believe in stigmatizing labels or judgements. Most often I utilize trauma-focused, solution focused, and motivational interviewing counseling styles. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. When you are ready to take the next step and explore the possibilities, please reach out. I look forward to working with you!
