Megan L. Duncan Counseling PLLC
Megan was born and raised in Nebraska, with deep family roots and a part of her heart still there. From as early as she can remember, Megan has loved God and loved people. She is drawn to and sincerely interested in people’s stories and life experiences. Her unwavering faith and loving upbringing provided a solid foundation and passionate endurance to journey through and untangle life’s pain; her own life experiences brought her to a place which desires to help others do the same.
Megan has loved Colorado since she was a child and has felt blessed to call it home for 16 years. Megan is an active Christian, wife, mother, grandmother, counselor and friend. In her free time she loves to worship, date her husband, travel (to the mountains and the beach), read, walk and spend time with loved ones. She received her Bachelors of Science in Psychology from University of Phoenix in 2014, and recently graduated from Colorado Christian University with her Master of Arts in Counseling. Megan feels privileged to have spent her internship at Restoration Counseling of Northern Colorado under the direct supervision of Chris Bruno.
Megan’s interests and areas of focus for further study include marriage and couples, family dynamics, intimate relationships and sexual issues, domestic violence and abuse, trauma, grief and loss, anxiety, depression and addiction. Megan’s therapeutic approach is collaborative and integrative. She believes in the exploration process of a client’s narrative and personal story. Megan continues to research and study neuroscience, mindfulness and DBT. Megan’s prayer is to remain connected to the Holy Spirit, allowing His work to be accomplished through her time with clients.
Both counselors are trained in EMDR therapy (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing).
This is a technique that simply allows traumas and events in life that are stuck to be processed.
After just a few sessions of EMDR, many clients are amazed how their anxiety, panic, or depression feels significantly less.
Soul HEALth Story
The idea for Soul HEALth Counseling Center began to form in the hearts and minds of two strangers’ years ago. When Audra and Megan began graduate school, they instantly connected over age, children and interests in love and marriage. Through the years, the friendship has proven to be a divine intervention. Their bond has strengthened each other personally, professionally, and spiritually. With similar passions and desires, Soul HEALth Counseling Center was born!
Both Audra and Megan have experienced life, all the ups, downs, ins and outs, filled with joy, pain, love, and sorrow. They agree they would not be where they are today without God’s enduring love and direction, along with love and support from loved ones. These relationships are at the very core of human existence and a very important part of individual and collective journeys. Strong, healthy relationships make the journey tolerable and worthwhile. SoulHEALth’s goal is to offer a comfortable and safe environment for you to come and explore, untangle, learn, and heal those areas that have been a burden for far too long. Our passion is to support your exploration process, assist in the untangling and unraveling of painful areas, while you learn more about yourself and your relationships, all in an effort to heal and restore your soul.

Relationships are made and lost.
It is in these moments of life that we learn how to cope and deal with the known and unknown events that are inevitable. As you look back on your life, you can distinguish defining moments. Seek those that help you see a little clearer or from a deeper, sometimes different, perspective. A favorite book is Anatomy of the Soul by Curt Thompson, M.D. and in it he says:
“If you allow yourself to be known by God, you invite a different and frankly more terrifying experience. You are now in a position of vulnerability. If you permit others to know you, they can make their own assessment of your worth. They can react to you. You give them power to be affected by you or to reject you. In essence, you must –must- trust another with yourself…
To be known is to be pursued, examined, and shaken. To be known is to be loved and to have hopes and even demands placed on you. It is to risk, not only the furniture in your home being rearranged, but your floor plans being rewritten, your walls being demolished and reconstructed. To be known means that you allow your shame and guilt to be exposed-in order for them to be healed.”
Just like a physical gash needs to be cleaned, have salve rubbed into it, and a bandage put on, so do emotional wounds. Not one person walks this great earth and leaves without a mental or emotional wound. Too many times we do not want anyone to see it, so we put a smile on and face life head on, not allowing the world to see the hurt.
Our goal is to work on healing those wounds and allow the healing to take place in a safe and private setting as we work together to heal the wounds of your soul.
