*Not currently accepting clients
Megan is a 2011 graduate of the University of Iowa, where she earned her Master’s degree in Rehabilitation and Counselor Education. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Business from Cornell College. Megan completed her training and became a fully Licensed Mental Health Counselor in 2013.
Megan provides individual therapy to adolescents and adults. Her specialty areas include social anxiety, OCD, generalized anxiety, depression and substance abuse. Megan has extensive experience working with teens and adults with social anxiety, OCD and co-occurring disorders.
Continuing education and specialized training are important for professional counselors, and in 2019, Megan began to deepen her focus and training in cognitive behavioral therapy. Between 2019 and 2020, she completed two intensive 18 hour workshops: “Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Challenging Problems in Youth” and “Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Anxiety and Related Disorders” at the Beck Training Institute in Philadelphia. Additionally she completed several online workshops through the Beck Institute, including “Essentials of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy,” “Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Depression and Suicide,” and “Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Personality Disorders.”
In September 2020, she took the intensive 21 hour, three-day Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) training for OCD presented by the Behavioral Therapy Training Institute in Indianapolis. Currently, her goal is to become a certified cognitive behavioral therapist which combines rigorous training along with evaluation and supervision by leading experts in the field of cognitive behavioral therapy. While Megan prefers to use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in session she believes in the importance of incorporating other treatment modalities and interventions as appropriate for each individual client, which is why she also continues her learning by taking continuing education courses in other treatment modalities as well.
Megan was an adjunct professor at the University of Iowa in 2015. She is currently a member of the American Mental Health Counselors Association and the Iowa Mental Health Counselors Association. She is also available for public speaking on a variety of mental health and substance abuse issues.
In addition to expanding her own knowledge of counseling, she enjoys supervising individuals who are in their clinical programs or those who are provisionally licensed while they work towards full licensure. Please email Megan if you are interested in an internship opportunity or supervision.
