Megan Ford, PhD
Simply Therapeutic was founded on the idea that counseling and coaching services should be accessible to all, and that all deserve access to quality mental health services. It is truly that Simple! So if you are feeling anxious, depressed, cautious, or a little off balance...then Simply reach out and take a step towards mental well-being.
Dr. Ford's passion is the ardent advocating for mental health services to Arizona communities, and working to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness. As a passionate resident clinician, Dr. Ford encourages all to always consider that one's mental health be treated as important as one's physical health. MIND. BODY. SOUL. One cannot thrive without the other!
Dr. Ford's treatment approach is rather unique as she has fun loving animal assistants! Dr. Quinn aka 'Anxiety Cat' and Counselor Sol aka the 'Curiously Cautious Hedgehog'. Both assistants provide a unique experience for clients, and offer a calming presence. Dr. Quinn is a natural at sensing anxiety, and will often approach those with anxiety in a playful manner to help soothe the client. Counselor Sol is great with children, and teaches them it is okay to be curious and how to respectfully build boundaries. Lastly, Captain Jack, Dr. Ford's road trip companion is an ADHD sufferer, and he provides great examples on how to expend energy and how it can be really hard to concentrate sometimes! Captain Jack is a clinician in training, with boundless energy!
