Psychology Doctoral Intern

Education

MS, Mental Health Counseling, University at Albany
BS, Psychology and Sociology, Tufts University

Professional Interests

Megan has experience working with culturally diverse young adults in both hospital and college settings. Clinical areas of interest include working with student athletes, stress and anxiety management, navigating the transition to college, first onset of mental illness, and group therapy. Research interests include barriers to seeking mental health treatment, the impact of race-related stress, and cultural competence. 

Approach to Therapy

Megan believes that a strong therapeutic relationship is paramount in therapy and works hard to make clients feel comfortable when they attend counseling. Her work is informed by cognitive behavioral, interpersonal, and psychodynamic approaches to therapy and she allows the needs of each client to inform the approach to treatment. Megan seeks to recognize the ways in which cultural experiences and systems of oppression influence one’s experience in treatment and in the world. 

Approach to Wellness

Megan enjoys playing softball and volleyball, watching sports (especially the Yankees and Giants), taking walks with her energetic rescue dog Bruce, and her favorite guilty pleasure, watching Bravo.
