Guest Bio

Megan Numbers, MA, LPC, is a military spouse, grew up in a military family, and has 2 military kids of her own. She has a private practice near Fort Bragg, NC specializing in working with military children. Her passion for working with military children grew as she embarked on her dream of becoming a play therapist and being a counselor educator. Megan quickly realized that there were limited resources for military kids that both illuminated the challenges they faced and provided concrete interventions to help them through military-related struggles. She saw a need for a resource and started developing this book series that is loosely based on military kids she knows.
