Meggan Hartman, M.A., is finishing her PhD in psychology and is currently working on her dissertation about Motherhood Identity. Meggan has trained with Angelique for just under 2 years and is trained in both Angelique's infant and toddler sleep methods. Anqelique’s multi-disciplinary, research based, and gentle methods aligns with Meggan’s philosophy of parenting. It meets a family wherever they are in their process and helps develop a collaborative plan to help the whole family get back to sleep. Meggan believes that when a family is well rested the transformation into familyhood is more creative, supported, peaceful, and joyous. Meggan is also a trained Lactation Educator and assists families who would like to continue to nurse at night while also making sleep changes.

Meggan spent 15 years of her career conducting wilderness self-discovery programs for youth and has a deep understanding of how the natural world can transform identity as well as how life experiences are the template for growth and change. Meggan worked for Outward Bound for eight years, where she was a trainer and program director for semester courses. While at Outward Bound she developed curriculum and ran character development workshops for teenagers, adults, and staff. She led international expeditions to Africa, Canada, Mexico, and Peru, as well as numerous adventure and skill-based trips across the United States.

Her interest in identity transformation lead her to graduate school where she obtained her Masters in Transpersonal Psychology. Subsequent training includes Somatic Psychology, Cross-Cultural Leadership with Angeles Arrien, Psychosynthesis, Expressive Arts Therapy, and Sand Tray Therapy.
Meggan also completed a two-year training at Child Therapy Institute of Marin, which gave her a deep understanding of family systems, play therapy, and a whole family approach to healing.

The unifying insight gleaned from her work in the wilderness, graduate school, Child Therapy Institute and other trainings is that identity transformation or formation is a slow maturational process. With supportive facilitation and guidance identities can be formed that are adaptable and responsive to a wide range of life scenarios.

The birth of her son put to test all of her training and life experiences, as she witnessed the anxiety and confusion that overwhelmed women as they began their journey into motherhood. She read all of the “how to” books and found she was becoming overwhelmed and guilt ridden about how to raise her child. She found plenty of dogmatic approaches, but none accounted for the nuances of her family life. She discovered that the most important journey into motherhood required her to find and trust her own intuition, i.e. develop a motherhood identity that was able to respond to her family’s needs and allowed for the development of her capacities.

She is delighted to be working with new parents helping their story unfold.

Meggan resides in Asheville, NC with her husband and two children and assists families around the country via phone/Skype and in home visits for families in North Carolina.
