Meg Goodman

Coach & Mentor

Meg (they/she) had the privilege of growing up on a small island in the Pacific Northwest of the US where they spent their growing up years playing in nature. Meg moved to Aotearoa in 2011 and deeply resonates with holistic approaches to wellbeing such as Te Whare Tapa Whā. Meg has worked in a diversity of roles within the public health sector and currently is managing a new youth mental health service across Te Tau Ihu (Top of the South Island). Meg is an active researcher and has completed studies on media representations of consensual non-monogamy in Aotearoa, as well as rainbow youth experiences of accessing mental health services in the Nelson/Tasman region. Meg is passionate about supporting people in the queer and polyamorous/CNM alternative relationship structure communities (and is a member of these communities herself) and applies an intersectional lens to understanding experiences of distress and trauma. Meg enjoys working with and resourcing gender-diverse humans, and exploring ways to enhance gender euphoria. In her work with individuals and relationships, she takes a strength-based approach and utilises evidence-based best-practice tools such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to help people thrive. Meg is in the process of completing her studies in clinical psychology and will be a registered clinical psychologist in 2025.


Meg works with people aged 16+, individuals, whānau (families), and couples/triads/polycules. Meg brings creativity, curiosity, and unconditional positive regard to the people they work with. Meg feels it is a privilege to walk alongside people on their life journey and to bear witness to their growth and development. In their spare time, Meg enjoys tramping, hunting, and fly fishing with her two young children, playing roller derby, and creating art in the forms of painting and pottery.
