About Therapy
Therapy provides an opportunity to gain insight into personal thoughts, beliefs, actions, emotions, and patterns that can lead to growth and acceptance. I believe individuals are resilient and have the intrinsic ability to make and sustain changes that lead to greater personal satisfaction. I approach therapy collaboratively guided by my conviction that individuals have within them what they need to thrive, and my role is to guide them to meet their potential. I invest time and energy understanding the individual needs and goals of those who choose to work with me.

Personal-Educational Background

My husband and I have been married for ten years and have lived in Fayette County for the past eleven years. We are the proud parents of six: five rescue dogs and one rescue cat. I am originally from Birmingham, AL. I graduated from Auburn University with a Bachelor of Social Work degree and The University of Alabama with a Master of Social Work degree in 1995.

I am committed to personal and professional growth. I am a certified Imago Relationship Therapist and have post graduate training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Training and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction strategies. I strive to empower my patients by sharing researched based information regarding issues they are facing. I enjoy working in concert with my patients and with their physicians or other health care providers.

Professional Background
For the past seventeen years, I have worked in a variety of social service settings.  I have worked as a social worker in home health care, nursing homes, psychiatric hospitals, and juvenile justice settings. I also worked in elementary and high school settings as a special education teacher for seven years. For the past five and one half years, I have worked in community mental health care, and most currently, private practice.

I am excited to announce that Meghan Harbin, LMSW,  will now be working at Mindful Alternatives!

Meghan has an extensive background in helping adolescents and families deal with the impact of trauma. Meghan has experience working with adolescents and families within the legal circuit, foster care system, hospitals, schools, and mental health arenas. Meg continues to be inspired  assisting children and their families in recognizing their brilliance and drawing upon their strengths as they thrive within their personal lives and communities.
