Tom Seguin, PLMHP
Tom Seguin, PLMHP has experience with a therapy style called Parent Child Interaction Therapy. The focus is to help not just create a safe, predictable and loving discipline system for children, but to actually build positive interactions between the parent and child that encourages emotional safety and support.
With teens Tom has a passion for working with young men. He finds that working with teen men means being able to help them to channel anger into self advocacy and learn how to help them “save face” in arguments by learning social skills and language skills. He knows that when depression and anxiety keep men from functioning their best – the frustration can lead to anger and isolation. Tom gives young men a place to be able to get help and be their optimal self.
“Parenting is certainly part of treating teens,” he says. Often parents are worried that the greater functioning of the family will be left out of equation when treating depression and anxiety for teens. He has experience working with the whole family structure. Tom notes, “Even if the goal for the family is to get through dinner without a fight, or to get out of the house in the morning on time – those stresses matter to both the parent and the teen / pre-teen.” He currently takes Medicaid and Blue Cross Blue Shield and has affordable payment-at-time-of-service rates.

Megan Ross, PLMHP
Megan Ross, MA, PLMHP has been working with adolescents, youth and families since 2008. It is this passion for helping youth and families that motivated her to obtain her Masters of Counseling degree from Doane College in 2011. Since then, she has worked with youth on issues such as healthy sexuality, trauma recovery from abuse / neglect, and supporting foster families as caregiver systems.
When asked about how she helps youth and families, Megan says “I believe as a therapist I have to start where my client is. When my youth clients believe that that my treatment plan is in their best interest, they become their own best self advocates.”
Megan has experience working on helping youth and families be successful at school. Sometimes that means just getting to school and feeling safe but often it means helping them be able to manage their anxiety and depression in and out of the school environment. Megan takes Blue Cross Blue Shield and Medicaid as well as very reasonable payment-at-time-of-service rates. Call 402-325-0117, ext 11 or book online!
