Meghan Smythe Love MA, MFT

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist providing individual, couples, and family therapy. I believe that anyone’s pain is part of a larger system – whether that be family, peers, place of employment, and/or societal expectations. Whether I am working with an individual or with a couple/family, my approach is to take into account all aspects of the stressors experienced in order to work toward an overall healthier system. I look for ways in which relationships can be improved by providing opportunities for each member to better understand each other or for individuals to better understand their role within a system.

For parents making the decision to seek a therapist for their child, I understand that can be a delicate decision. I prioritize providing a comfortable environment in which my goal is for children to feel safe, heard, and understood. I often incorporate elements of play therapy, art therapy, and sandtray therapy into treatment.

Your story, experiences, and patterns are unique to you. By helping you better understand them, my hope is that you can achieve your goals and flourish. I look forward to working with you!
