MEGAN GUILLEN-DIAZ, M.S., LAMFT
Education & Training
I am an Idaho native originally hailing from the mountains of beautiful McCall, Idaho. I received my undergrad from Boise State University with a BA in Communication with an Interpersonal emphasis in 2007. I was a teaching assistant for multiple courses in interpersonal communication at BSU and this is where my passion for all things relational began. I completed my MS in Marriage & Family Therapy with Capella University in 2017. During my internship experience, I gained valuable experience working with individuals, couples, families, children and the elderly, as well as group counseling. I facilitated and co-facilitated groups on co-dependency and many others. I also created and implemented an anxiety support group for children during my time there.
I hold an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist license in Idaho and I am currently working toward my next level of licensure under the supervision of John Szudera.
Theoretical Orientation & Approach
I believe each client, couple, and family is unique, and therapy must be flexible according to the personality and needs of the client(s). Therefore, I pull from multiple counseling modalities in order to meet the needs of each client. The modalities I use and am passionate about are Gottman, Solution-Focused, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative, and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). My faith is the most important thing in my life, so I also have a huge heart for Christian faith-based counseling.
While I enjoy working with all clientele, I have a special passion for working with couples, especially implementing Gottman method. I also specialize in working with women and postpartum issues. No matter where you are on your journey, I am excited to join you!
