Consulting & Coaching:
I coach commuter couples who are deciding whether to super commute, embarking on one, or looking for strategies to navigate this lifestyle as a whole. I offer consulting services to companies looking to improve employee wellness or aid in the goals of employee retention and recruitment for their road warriors.  PLEASE NOTE: Coaching and consulting are two services that do not involve the diagnosis and/or treatment of a mental health disorder. They are not a substitute for counseling, mental health care, or substance abuse treatment.

A supportive, informative workshop can be tailored for those who are “left behind” as a forum to gather information, tips, and connect with others. Mommy and Me groups, book clubs, community education, and ECFE are just a few of the possible audiences.

I have developed a workshop for mental health professions where they will learn why super commuting has become more common, the impact on relationships and related challenges that arise, and specific interventions to support their super commuter clients.

I am available to speak to employees, management, and human resources departments on the topic of super commuting and managing the stress of frequent business travel.  Participants will learn about the rise of super commuting, how this arrangement could attract quality employees who might not otherwise consider a position far from home, management considerations, and specific benefits as well as challenges inherent in this lifestyle and tips for reducing the related stress. Another popular talk focuses on reducing perfectionism and overwhelm.


“I had the pleasure of having Megan speak to procurement, human resources and travel management executives at a seminar on Road Warrior (and Super Commuter) wellness, attrition rate and productivity.  On an agenda that included management consultants and senior executives from health care and start up companies, Megan’s talk was the most genuine and credible.  Supported by both personal experience and research, Megan highlighted the many challenges endured by super commuters and offered solutions to help improve super commuter productivity and quality of life.  I continue to receive requests for her presentation and book and can’t wait to have her as the keynote at our next event.”

Bradford Karl, District Sales Manager, Delta Air Lines

“Megan provides a unique and personal understanding of a topic that corporations may not know to pay attention to with their employees. Super commuters was a phrase that was unknown to me until I met Megan, even though my company has super commuters in its workforce. Megan presented at one of my professional organizational health groups and her conversational style and her depth of knowledge, from both personal experience and the latest studies on the topic, provided an exceptional learning experience about super commuters and their realities, and best practices on making it work.” Lisa Dau, MA, CEAP, LP, Senior MEAP Manager- Medtronic

“Megan was invited to speak at our Hazelden Clinical Connections event, a forum to bring together mental health and addiction professionals for learning and sharing best practices. Her presentation about super commuters was well prepared and filled with useful information. The audience was very engaged and enjoyed learning about her innovative work in this emerging area. I hope to bring her back to speak again soon!” Joel E. Cycenas, M. Div. Hazelden Outreach Manager – Center City

“Thank you so much for speaking to Women@GT – the women’s group at Grant Thornton in the Minneapolis office. Your session on “Managing Stress for Women in the Corporate World” was very well received and the participants felt that you did an excellent job engaging the audience as well as providing excellent advice. We hope to have you back again soon! Grant Thornton LLP

“Megan was a wonderful keynote speaker for a TeamWomenMN luncheon and presented on the topic of “Three Mottos for Combating Perfectionism.” She shared personal experiences, expert advice and practical techniques that were easy to put into action. The audience responded well to her and engaged in many questions on the topic.” Amy Sinclair, Executive Director, TeamWomenMN

“I left Megan’s super commuter presentation with a strong sense of hope for change within relationships that both strive and struggle within the framework of travel for work and career. Very interesting topic.” Brian Zirngible, LMFT MAMFT conference. Hello. Goodbye. Repeat. Helping Super Commuter Families Build Resilience and Stay Connected When a Career Keeps Them Apart

“Fantastic presentation!” Audience member at MAMFT conference Hello. Goodbye. Repeat. Helping Super Commuter Families Build Resilience and Stay Connected When a Career Keeps Them Apart

“Megan’s Bearce’s presentation was insightful and helpful! Her words really hit home. I couldn’t jot down her ideas and suggestions fast enough. The next day I ordered 4 of the books on her awesome resource page and I have already used some the strategies I learned from her session with my son. Thank you for giving me a tool chest to use with my child!” Kim Carlson, Director of Community Education, Buffalo- Hanover- Montrose Schools
