Megan Bayles Bartley, MAMFT, LMFT
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Every therapist is different. Plain and simple. If you’ve been to one therapist, you’ve been to one therapist.
As the Founding Director of Louisville Mindfulness Center, mindfulness and meditation are a big part of my practice. I have found this approach calming and centering for clients who feel “scattered” or “overthink” things. This is a simple and straightforward approach that does wonders for individuals and couples dealing with anger, depression, anxiety, and relationship issues. It gives you tools for your toolbox so you are prepared to handle challenging situations as they arise.
For the last few years, I’ve been honored to be named one of Three Best Rated’s Best Marriage Counselor’s in Louisville. Currently, I enjoy working with individuals (and couples) where one of the partners in the relationship refuses to go to therapy or one person is choosing to pursue therapy at this time with the possibility of both people coming in at some point.
I love working with individuals dealing with anxiety, are easily irritable and frustrated, or have been told they have anger issues.
If you are a couple dealing with infidelity and trust issues, I recommend you see our therapist Chris Davis! That is his specialty!
I was born in California, grew up in Seattle and graduated from the University of Washington. After living in Tucson, Arizona for a bit, I decided to get my Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. Upon graduation, I moved to Austin, Texas for 11 years before moving back to Louisville in 2014.
I have loved living all across the United States and have been lucky enough to travel the world. I love meeting new people and exploring new cultures. When I’m not working on my practice, my media contributions, attending a public speaking event or a board meeting, you’ll find me being silly with my family, reading (a lot!), practicing yoga (a little), and being creative (always!).
Besides seeing clients in my private practice I also contribute to the media, such as Today’s Woman magazine and do public speaking. I am a former board member of GLOW, Greater Louisville Outstanding Women, which supports Louisville’s ‘best of the best’ women in business.
I am a published author of a fun and silly book for parents to read to kiddos at bedtime called “Don’t Go To Sleep.” It is a method I created when my daughter was 4 years-old that worked wonderfully. Essentially it is a guided meditation that helps parents calm down and relax just as much as kiddos! My hope is that it will work just as well for other families as much as it did for ours. So far the feedback has been very positive! Give it a try! It’s available on Amazon: HERE.
