Meggan Tigges is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Board Certified Art Therapist (ATR-BC) who earned her Master’s Degree in Art Therapy with an emphasis in Counseling from Mount Mary University. Her core values stem from the philosophy that the creative process can develop a deeper understanding of self, aiding in connection, healing and transformation. Meggan has years of experience working with adolescents, adults and families, joining with clients to provide integrative and effective care, being mindful of keeping the client at the center of treatment. Her approach to the therapeutic process is to foster a warm, inviting and non-judgmental therapeutic space rooted in authenticity, compassion and creativity.
Meggan collaborates with clients utilizing a person-centered, relational-cultural, and feminist lens with a holistic approach. She guides clients through the art therapy process to aid in healing and personal growth. Art therapy provides a safe place to express tough feelings, thoughts and emotions through the language of art-making, when verbal processing can be challenging. No prior experience with art-making is necessary as Meggan will promote a safe, non-judgmental space for your creativity and exploration. She is also experienced in utilizing mindfulness, meditation and somatic strategies to benefit the mind-body connection.
