Megan Carr, MA, Neuro-Somatic Coach & Counselor / Attachment Repair
Depression, anxiety, chronic pain, eating disorders, addictions, these are all signs of trauma attempting to work its way out of the system. Over the last ten years I have been integrating, refining and developing my signature attachment-based somatic approach connecting with the inherent wisdom of the body, restoring regulation and transforming old traumas into new beginnings.
My work draws on a culmination of studies in several areas including the Adult Attachment Repair Model (AARM), ICF certified Coach for Life training, Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) Natural Lifemanship equine assisted psychotherapy and as of most recently the study of scripture as related to healing.
I specialize in supporting highly sensitive and creative individuals. My clients tend to know on some level that they are here to play a healing role yet find themselves feeling stuck and unable to be themselves, who they truly are.
The thing I love most about Vibrant Wellbeing is the people. I noticed the first time I came here there was something different. A unique energy of care and compassion for the client unlike anything I had witnessed before.

"Meg has been phenomenal to work with. The five months of sessions with her did more for my wellbeing than years spent with other counselors and therapists. When I started, I was feeling painfully stuck. I knew something was not right and I needed to get deeper than just talking about it, but I felt lost on what to do. Meg’s somatic, attachment-based approach was everything I had been looking for. She provided a kind and flexible environment for addressing the root causes of my struggles, while also offering reliable structure and guidance. After working with Meg, I feel so much lighter, brighter, and more tuned in to myself than before. I now feel confident in my own ability to address what challenges will inevitably come up through life. What’s so brilliant about working with Meg is that she doesn’t try to tell you what you need; she teaches you how to find out what you need from yourself, so you can carry that forward and far beyond your sessions."

I am a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP), a Journal to the Self Facilitator, and I hold certifications in four somatic-based yoga styles consisting of Hatha, Raja, Yoga Nidra (guided meditation) and Yoga Therapy.
With mindful, embodied skills and gentle inquiry, I meet you where you are, holding sacred and empathetic space. I encourage you to explore your inner world, bringing awareness to your deepest and most uncomfortable feelings to release and transform pain, fears, stress, anxiety, and overwhelm, also known as trauma. The answers you seek are available by accessing your inner knowing, your own innate wisdom.
You may feel broken, but you’re not. No matter what is happening in your life, it’s going to be okay. With gentle contact to the present moment and a compassionate embracing of yourself, I offer guidance, helping you to remember and experience your wholeness; it’s the feeling of coming home to yourself.
I love seeing people come out of the complex patterns that aren’t serving them. I appreciate that the soul mission at Vibrant Wellbeing is healing the body mind and spirit.

“I have been to 15 counselor/therapists in my life and have never made real lasting progress like I have after turning to Somatic Experiencing Therapy with Victoria. She brings such love, tenderness, compassion and trustworthiness to every appointment. I have left behind major amounts of fear, guilt and self hatred. I have learned to live for today and am now dreaming of a future I cannot yet imagine. If you feel stuck and don't know where to turn, I highly suggest reaching out to Victoria!” TH
