"I have known Meg since she began her clinical training as an intern in college mental health. She is a consummate professional and authentic human being. As a former Professor, Meg changed careers in order to reach young adults in a deeper and more meaningful way. This unique and broad skill set really enhances her capacity to truly understand the college student experience. She embodies that wonderful combination of intelligence and skill while also remaining REAL. I would recommend her without hesitation."- Jean Russell, LICSW • December 2019
"Meg is a compassionate, caring, and authentic individual. She is a dedicated therapist and shows a genuine concern for all of her patients."- Colleague • February 2016
She made me feel at ease and didn't force the next appointment."
Meg is amazing! She is understanding, patient, and she an avid listener. Her comfort with sharing personal experiences also helped make me feel more comfortable talking with her, particularly her experience as a caregiver and dealing with anxiety."
Meg was an incredible source of support throughout our work together. She provided a safe space for me to show up as I am, and always met me where I was with patience and compassion. Meg helped me to challenge longstanding narratives and thought patterns. Her understanding of the psychodynamic approach helped to facilitate lasting growth and transcendence, for which I am incredibly grateful."
Before seeing Meg, I didn’t really feel like therapy was helpful for me. Now I see her every week and found that my mood and life has significantly improved! She is extremely understanding and patient and really helps me sort out what I’m thinking. Now I want to go to therapy as much as possible!"
