Megan received her undergraduate degree in Psychology with a minor in Women’s Study’s from Avila University.  She went on to obtain her Master’s in Counseling and Child and Adolescent Certificate from Avila University, completing course work in May of 2015.  She split her internship between counseling adolescents at an alternative school and working at Research Psychiatric Center.  She also worked with individuals with developmental disabilities in a group home for 5 years.  She is currently working towards state licensure under the supervision of David Robbins, M.A., Licensed Professional Counselor.

Megan has experience working with adults, adolescents, and families in the hospital setting.  She enjoys learning and teaching and views counseling as a way for individuals to teach their experiences and learn better skills to manage problems in their lives.  She also believes play is very important and works to bring an element of play into therapy.  She takes an eclectic approach to therapy, recognizing every person and situation is unique; however, she frequently uses CBT, DBT, skill building, and positive psychology in session.

When she is not in session, Megan can be found teaching or spending time with her family.  Some hobbies include most things fantasy and Sci-Fi and Megan loves to dress up and be goofy.  She is also a fan of the Renaissance Festival and can be found every year dressed up and enjoying shows.
