Meghan completed her bachelor’s degree in psychology at the University of Alabama with specialization in human development and family studies and earned a masters degree in clinical rehabilitation and mental health counseling from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Research and clinical observation in child development classrooms has equipped Meghan to understand the impact of childhood experiences on personal and relational development across the lifespan. Meghan’s experience also includes assisting with mental health stabilization and symptom improvement through an intensive-in-home program for adolescents and families. Additionally, Meghan has experience with high acuity adult clients being treated in inpatient psychiatric facilities for severe and persistent mental illnesses.

Meghan is passionate about seeking to understand individuals’ life experiences and how their unique stories have led them to where they are today. She understands and empathizes with the difficulties of navigating daily life and seeks to empower clients to reach their own goals. Meghan prioritizes a warm, non judgemental, and sometimes humorous therapeutic environment where clients can explore their internal and external experiences at their own pace. She is guided by a client-centered approach with components from evidence based therapies such as acceptance and commitment therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, and mindfulness based approaches.

In her free time, you can find Meghan going on walks with her dog, enjoying live music, and starting too many books at one time.

Meghan is under the supervision of Rebekah Jones, LPC, CPCS.
