Megan Tarshis, LCSW, is a stress management expert. She graduated from Smith College School for Social Work in 2005, where she learned how past circumstances impact current thoughts, feelings, and actions. She completed two internships, the first at Ridgeview Institute, an in and outpatient treatment facility, and the second at the Emory University Counseling Center. She went on to complete a fellowship at Emory University, where she focused on her primary areas of interest - coping styles, adjustment, and stress management.
After graduating from Smith, she continued to work at Ridgeview Institute, where she ran therapy groups, worked with families, and provided education. She also continued to work at the Emory University Counseling Center, where she worked with a wide range of symptoms, including stress, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, and others.
