About our counselor

Meredith Sommers (LPC, NCC) is a warm, empathetic and dedicated therapist eager to assist individuals in finding their ideal path along life’s journey. She believes and respects that each person has a unique story through which he or she makes sense of the world. Meeting people in whatever situation they feel stuck, Meredith is passionate about working together to bring hope and clear perspective to difficult situations, while also helping to strategize and implement solutions. She takes special interest in the areas of self-esteem, anxiety, depression, relational conflict, grief, and life adjustment issues, and enjoys supporting individuals who desire to remove the roadblocks that hinder healthy eating and fitness routines to support improved mood and overall life satisfaction.

 

Meredith obtained her Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration from the University of Mount Union in 2003. While working in business she discovered her real passion of equipping individuals and teams. In 2011, she earned a Master of Arts in Community Counseling from Regent University. She spent the initial part of her counseling career working in conjunction with the Department of Mental Health at Washington Hospital Center in Washington D.C.

 

When she is not working, Meredith looks forward to spending time with her husband and daughter, gardening, running, cooking/creating new recipes and continually learning. She finds joy in recognizing the hand of God in the everyday circumstances of life and delights in her personal relationship with Jesus. Meredith also values integrating faith and clinical skills into her work as a counselor.
