Meg Kandros recognizes the value and the importance in helping individuals hold hope where they find it difficult to do so for themselves. Desiring her clients to be heard and seen during the therapeutic process, Meg believes that no one should travel his or her journey alone.
“When the emotions, memories, and pain are intense and you’re feeling vulnerable, it’s especially difficult to invite someone into your space. I pray my office is a safe place for my clients—a place where ‘hope builds on possibilities’,” says Meg.
In that environment of hope, Meg helps her clients find healing and growth. She has helped female adolescents, female adults, couples, and families heal emotionally in the midst of challenging personal circumstances. Meg’s practice and the people she serves are more than just a job for her; she finds guiding others in growth and restoration deeply satisfying and considers her work a gift.
Meg is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and holds a bachelor’s degree from Liberty University and a master’s degree from Trevecca Nazarene University. She is a member in the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy and the Tennessee Association of Marriage and Family Therapy. Prior to starting a private practice, Meg spent three years at Hope Clinic for Women where she served women facing the challenges of unplanned pregnancy and assisted them in making healthy life choices.
When she’s not in the office, Meg’s probably reading a book or enjoying the outdoors with her family. Favorite destinations for relaxation are Rosemary Beach or any cabin tucked away in the woods. Most likely wherever she is, she’s sipping from a mug. She admits she probably drinks too much coffee; but then again, she’s somewhat indebted to the hot beverage.
While working as a Starbucks barista, Meg and Micah Kandros met in 2006 when he ordered a strong cup with lots of cream and a little bit of sugar. Nine months later, they married. These days, she likes her coffee strong with a splash of cream, which keeps her fueled for chasing after her three rowdy boys, Augustine & Rivers and Malone.
