My name is Maghan and I am glad you are here. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Mental Health Service Provider designation LPC-MHSP. I have been working in the field of mental health for the past 6 years, with prior experience through volunteer work. I specialize in CBT as my 'go to' technique because if you can change your thinking, you can change your emotion, you can change your action. I also enjoy utilizing Art Therapy, Trauma Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy and finding what techniques will work best for you, as counseling is not 'one size fits all'. I believe there is a technique and skill that can provide the help and bring about the change you are looking for.
I received my Masters of Arts in Clinical Mental Health and my Bachelors in Arts in Psychology at UNC-Greensboro. I have experience in working with ages ranging from 3-90, helping client's with issues such as attention and impulse control, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, self-harm, suicidal ideation, relationship issues, managing expectations, developing discipline in daily life, setting life goals, self-esteem and self-image. In my 6 years of counseling, I have worked with individuals, couples and families, I have worked as a therapist within the foster care system in Nashville, TN. Working with children entering foster care and working with their biological family's and foster family's.
I believe we are all capable of change, that at times, we need a little bit of help to initiate that change. We all can use a listening ear, and someone who is objective. I want to help you enjoy life, to want change and growth, to build skills to manage what life may throw at you. I want you to feel that you have someone who is walking with you through your struggles/concerns and when you reach the other side of that struggle, know you are stronger.

Meghan is absolutely amazing. She asks questions that offer different perspectives and has helped me through so many issues. She makes it feel like I’m talking to a friend. We consistently meet once a week and she has a very flexible schedule. Sometimes I forget she has other clients because of how much she remembers about me!! I would recommend her to any of my friends or family.

I just adore Maghan! She's incredibly approachable and easy to talk to and I always feel refreshed and positive after our discussions. I appreciate that she really truly LISTENS to me. I don't feel any judgment on her part, and I have joked that it feels like having a friend I pay to talk with. As a therapist, she is the perfect balance of friendly and professional, and in our short time working together I already feel more self-confident. Thanks, Maghan!
