About Me.

Hi! I'm Megan Freed, creator of Walking Freed Counseling Services, LLC, in conjunction with my husband, Adam Freed. Let's not forget to introduce our loving and suportive member of the family, DoodleBob, our 2 year old mini golden doodle. 

I began my professional journey at Duquesne University studying Early Childhood Education with aspirations to become an elementary school teacher. After graduating with my degree in education, I spent several years substitute teaching within the Greater Pittsburgh Area. While I enjoyed my time as a teacher, I felt like there was something missing.

Ever since I was young, I enjoyed connecting with others and learning about psychology. I decided to pursue this passion by continuing my education and completing my masters degree in clinical mental health counseling and I worked to obtain my Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) certificate, as well as my Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) certification for the state of Pennsylvania.

I have a diverse experience in counseling. I began my practicum and internship at a drug and alcohol residential treatment center helping individuals work toward recovery, while also helping individuals work toward treating co-occuring mental health symptoms. 

My journey continued by working with both children and adults through outpatient counseling and mobile therapy through wraparound services. I also have experience in working with children through residential mental health treatment ages 8-15, with a focus on trauma recovery. 

Getting to know an individual is at the core of my practice. We will take time to build rapport and trust at whatever pace you feel most comfortable. I will explain and provide various treatment approach options, and help you navigate the best choice(s) for your journey. One treatment approach does NOT fit all. I conduct my therapy by using approaches designed to meet your needs and challenge you to work toward positive change. I've used the 12-step recovery method for some, while I've used the harm reduction principles for others. I've treated individuals with anxiety through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques, while others have worked toward Gradual Exposure Therapy. We will work together to find the best treatment approaches to best help you.
