Hi! My name is Megan Hus (Formerly Megan Tredennick) and I am dually licensed in Connecticut as a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor.
My work starts with where you are, with understanding you and your environment and helping finding meaning behind challenges you may have faced or are trying to cope with right now. I can help to shape your goals into realistic and healthy steps and also provide you with a safe, comforting environment so you can begin more mindful-living.
My Training and Different Approaches.
I hold a Master's Degree from Fairfield University in Community Counseling and have been practicing for 8 years now. I tend to use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy with clients and also Mindfulness Based Approach to help break down the thoughts, feelings and behaviors which may be creating additional stress in your life.
I also integrate my training as an ADS: Auricular Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist. This is a holistic intervention used to reduce cravings/urges, withdrawal symptoms, but can also help reduce anxiety, help you sleep and teach an individual to find calmness within. It is also known as the NADA Protocol. In 2015, I was a National presenter in Cleveland, OH where I presented on a study I completed on the use of acupuncture with addiction and anxiety.
I am also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which is a therapy approach that can help reduce the impact of trauma in your life whether it be a history of abuse, relationship struggles or different memories that may be holding you back. EMDR works by desensitize triggers which can be linked to difficult memories or in regards to substance use.
