Megan Bartel

Welcome to Rising Hope! I'm Megan Bartel, an LCSW with a master’s degree from the University of South Dakota. I'm honored to be part of this compassionate team that supports you on your journey to healing and self-discovery.

With over a decade of experience in healthcare and leadership, coupled with my background in social work and psychology, I bring a unique blend of expertise and empathy to our sessions. My mission is simple: to provide you with the safety, support, and accountability you need to navigate through life's challenges and rediscover the true essence of who you are. Whether you're facing anxiety, depression, relationship conflicts, or any other challenge life throws your way, I'm here to walk with you.

In our therapy sessions, I integrate a variety of modalities tailored to meet your unique needs and preferences. From person-centered principles to mindfulness techniques and cognitive-behavioral therapy, I offer a holistic approach that empowers you to tap into your inner wisdom and strengths.

Drawing from cognitive, solution-focused, and narrative theories, I tailor techniques and interventions to meet your needs and goals. I aim to provide a supportive and judgment-free environment where you can thrive and find the clarity and resilience to overcome life's obstacles.

Currently based in Sioux Falls, SD, I offer in-person and telehealth services to accommodate your needs and preferences. When I'm not in the therapy room, I find joy in spending time with my family and friends, camping, and spending as much time outside as South Dakota weather allows.

Together, let's embark on a transformative journey toward healing and growth. Whether you're struggling with self-doubt, navigating a life transition, or simply feeling lost, I'm here to offer guidance, comfort, and unwavering support.

So, if you're ready to take that first step toward creating the life you truly desire, I invite you to reach out. Let's embark on this journey together, where I'll be that unwavering force of good by your side. Hope fuels us with the energy and courage to keep moving forward, and I'm here to help you find it.
