Hello! I'm so glad that you're here. My name is Megan Vaccaro and I am a Licensed Master Social Worker. I graduated from Wayne State University and have been counseling for 19 years. I work with individuals ages 6+, 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 (awareness of thoughts, feelings, behaviors and behavioral urges), distress tolerance (stress will happen..what do we do about it?), emotion regulation (I'm overwhelmed with emotion..now what?) and interpersonal effectiveness (building and maintaining positive relationships). 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 circumstance that brought you here. I care about people and know that we all go through struggles in life. I approach people with respect and honor as I reflect on how I would want to be treated or how I would want my family and friends to be treated in the counseling environment. I value effective communication and place a high priority on this. I'm looking forward to working with you!
