Meet Meggan Bunce

Life is full of lessons and I feel lucky to be able to share mine as a supportive & compassionate Relationship Therapist. Utilizing my training in Gottman, Imago, EFT and Sex Therapy, I work to provide tools for stronger and more intimate relationships. I work with Individuals or Couples as needed. I am LGBQT+ and Addiction/Recovery friendly.

 

What would your clients and colleagues say is your therapist superpower?
There is one word that I hear often from past clients and colleagues and that is, Approachable. I take this as a compliment becuase I want peoeple to feel comfortable around me. My catch phrase is “Lets talk about things nobody wants to talk about” because I want people to feel comfortable with uncomfortable topics.
If you could pick one or two books that influenced your approach to therapy what would they be and why?
The book, Becoming the One, is one that I often refer to clients and I also found very helpful. The premise is that we often look outside of ourselves for understanding when we really have what we need in us already.

Another book, or should I clarify audiobook, I keep on repeat is, The Gift of Therapy by Yalom. His words are really great guideposts for this field. I find his wisdom reassuring of what my own intuition tells me about how to be therapeutic.
How have your personal experiences helped your work with your clients?
Life has given me some fantastic lessons. I’m not sure I always appreciated them at the time. From my 50 plus years, I can now smile back at how the journey of life leads us where we are supposed to go. As an overly involved mother of three kids, having experienced more that 20 years married and then navigating divorce I can take many points of view. Despite the challenges it has been an amazing journey, I find it rewarding to help people with the transitions of life. This often involves navigating sense of self, their important relationships, and future dream’s.

Therapy Styles

Short Term (Solution-focused, etc.) 
Ideal for those who are coming in with a specific problem they’d like to address and gain clarity on. Typically, short term therapies are present focused and do not dive deep into your past.

Structured
Structured therapies are goal and progress oriented. Therapists may incorporate psychoeducation and a specific “curriculum.” In order to stay on track, therapists may provide worksheets and homework.

Insight-oriented (Psychodynamic, Existential, etc.) 
Exploring the past and making connections to present issues can help clients gain insight. Getting to the root of the issue and finding deeper self-awareness can help with long-term change.

Non-directive (Humanistic, Person-centered, etc.)
Going with the flow and seeing where it leads.

Behavioral (CBT, DBT, etc.)
Focuses on changing potentially unhealthy or self-destructive behaviors by addressing problematic thought patterns and specific providing coping skills.

Trauma Focused (EMDR, TF-CBT, etc.)
Recognizing the connection between trauma experiences and your emotional and behavioral responses, trauma focused therapy seeks to help you heal from traumas.
