Megan Fentross (MAEd, LPCA)

MeganSometimes we find ourselves feeling stuck. What once worked doesn’t anymore, and we are exhausted. Together in therapy we can work to help you figure out how to move forward. You are doing the best you can AND you can learn new ways to deal with the things life throws at you.

What I hope to offer is a warm, encouraging, nonjudgmental space where you can be yourself. Together we can work on your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors to build your life worth living.

I have worked with a diverse population with various presenting issues including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, hallucinations, suicidal thoughts, self-harm, and substance use. I enjoy working with adolescents (14+) and adults. My practice is LGBTQIA+-affirming, and I have an interest to work with clients with issues involving sexuality and gender.

I primarily use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) with a collaborative, genuine, creative, and at times humorous therapeutic style. I can help meet your unique needs by incorporating other therapeutic approaches such as Radically Open DBT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Art Therapy.

I received a Masters of Arts in Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from The University of North Carolina at Pembroke in May 2017. I began my work in the field during my graduate internship in May 2016 at Delta Behavioral Health. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate and have been working as a facility programs therapist at Delta Behavioral Health since November 2017. I facilitate DBT skills training groups in the Partial Hospital Program (PHP), Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program (MHIOP), and Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program (SAIOP), as well as provide individual therapy for clients while they are in our programs.

In addition to my role as a facility programs therapist, I provide individual therapy in my private practice. I facilitate a weekly Adolescent DBT group, in which teens and their parents/caregivers can learn new skills together. I also facilitate a monthly free Young Adult Transgender Support Group in Wilmington, NC.
