COVID-19 Notice: New Clients Welcome!
As a COVID-19 precaution, this program has temporarily halted in-person counseling sessions. Community Counseling continues to be available to new and current clients by offering both video sessions (through doxy.me) and phone sessions, depending on the client's preference. The video platform is secure and can be used with a computer that has a webcam or a phone. Interested clients can contact Megan Denton-Gillette directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment.

Meet Our Counselors
Megan Denton-Gillette, MA, LCPC
As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with over 12 years of experience in the mental health field, I am passionate about helping clients to create the lives they want for themselves. My clinical training has focused on a range of modalities, including cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, dialectical behavioral, solution focused and person-centered therapies. As a counselor, I would describe myself integrative, as I utilize a number of different approaches based on the person I am working with and their individual goals. I believe the therapeutic process is collaborative and I place an emphasis on developing rapport within my relationships with clients throughout the counseling process. I strive to create an empowering, safe, nonjudgmental space for every person I work with.
My educational background includes a Bachelor’s degree in psychology from Southern Illinois University Carbondale and a Master’s degree in clinical adult psychology from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
My work experience has been diverse and has included inpatient, residential, and outpatient settings. I have many areas of clinical interest, but some include: working with survivors of trauma (e.g., power-based personal violence including intimate partner violence, sexual trauma, harassment and stalking, and PTSD), health psychology, women’s issues, emotional dysregulation, identity development, disordered eating and body image concerns, identity development (broadly defined) and romantic relationship issues. In addition to individual counseling, I am also skilled in providing group therapy, crisis intervention, and clinical supervision. I obtained my LPC in 2012, LCPC in 2014, and recently became a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP).
