Meg Blattner, PhD
Online Therapy & Parenting Support
Welcome to Beacon Psychological Services
Are irritability, worry, anger, sadness, or emotional ups and downs getting in your way of enjoying life? At times, past relationships or past events can prevent us from living in the present. Difficult emotional reactions or uncontrollable worries interfere with our ability to work, be in relationships, take care of responsibilities, and parent. You can find peace. Therapy provides a safe and caring setting for you to work through these issues and reach resolution. Together we will develop your strengths so you can move forward with calm and confidence in the face of stress.
Free Phone Consultation
Call today for a free 15 minute phone consultation. Fit with your therapist is important. A simple phone call can give you a sense of if you would like to work together. I can answer your questions and help you figure out what service might be best for you.
I offer both individual and group therapy, entirely online. I am passionate about working with women, especially mothers. I enjoy providing therapy for pregnant women and new mothers. I specialize in birth trauma, perinatal mood and anxiety issues. I use evidence-based treatments and adhere to the highest standards of care in the industry. If you’ve tried therapy before and feel like you didn’t make progress or keep circling back to the same issues, I’d love to help you break that cycle. Relief is possible and I would love to help you get there.
Parenting support services (including parent coaching and parent consultation) focus on supporting either your child or your relationship with your child. Parent coaching can be even more effective than individual child behavior therapy. There is no one-size fits all parenting solution. My primary focus is on you and your relationship with your child (ren). You will make decisions that enhance that relationship. Together we will make a plan that brings out your strengths as a parent and fits your family’s needs, values, and goals.
Rather than feeling chronically chaotic, imagine feeling confidently calm as you parent through stress with purpose and joy.
Be the parent you always hoped you could be.
Parent in the present rather than parenting like your past.

Are irritability, worry, anger, sadness, or emotional ups and downs getting in your way of enjoying life? I offer individual therapy for a range of presenting concerns including anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, and overwhelming stress.
Did you have a traumatic birth? Are you experiencing symptoms of PTSD? I offer evidence-based treatment for postpartum PTSD including Prolonged Exposure Therapy and Narrative Therapy.
Are sadness and irritability preventing you from enjoying your baby? Do you feel disconnected from your baby or like a “bad mom”? You are not alone and you don’t have to keep feeling this way.
Do your worries feel uncontrollable? Are you pregnant or have you recently had a new baby? Maybe your worries are keeping you from sleeping? Learn more about perinatal anxiety. I would love to help your worries become manageable so you can enjoy parenthood.
Sometimes having a group setting for therapy can help you feel less alone in your struggles. Learn more about online group therapy. I have a few upcoming groups, but if you desire a group around a specific issue (e.g. pregnancy after loss, adoptive parents, etc.) please let me know and I would be happy to talk about options for creating a specialty group to meet your needs.
Is your child experiencing behavior, mood, sleep, social or emotional problems? Are you caught in a cycle of arguing, yelling, or consequences that do not result in change? The plethora of parenting books and online information can feel overwhelming. I am here for you and we will get through this together. Let’s focus on solutions that maximize your strengths as a parent and fit your family.
