Hello, I’m Meredith Wood. I specialize in first responders, active and retired military, trauma, anxiety, and depression. Often times these all go hand in hand. Through my over 10 years in the mental health field I have honed my craft of aid clients just like you get control over your emotions, so that you can start enjoying life to the fullest. I only use approaches in counseling that are proven to be effective. These techniques include eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT).

 When making changes in our lives, it is important to discover why we act the way we do- much like pulling weeds in a garden. If you don't pull out the root, you continue to have weeds. I pride myself on helping clients find their root cause, so they make lasting changes. Another way to think of this is that we all behave a certain way for a reason. So, in order to change our behavior, we need to discover the reason we are doing it.

 One of the most important lessons that I work to teach my clients is that we are all doing the best we can with what we have. Let me help you find peace, and break free from your current struggles.

 I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor with Mental Health Service Provider specialization. I look forward to developing a systemic approach to aid first responders with job related stressors in the upcoming year with The Middle Path.
