My name is Meghan Gilbert and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Pennsylvania. I graduated from West Chester University of Pennsylvania in 2016 with a bachelor's degree in Social Work. I graduated from Widener University in 2017 with a master's degree in Social Work through their Advanced Standing Clinical Social Work program. I have been working in the mental health field for the past 8 years and I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of populations in the field. I have a lot of experiencing working with youth and people who struggle with managing anxiety, depression, stress, family challenges, trauma, and substance use. I have had the opportunity to work with people in different settings like inpatient and outpatient psychiatric care, community based treatment, schools , non-profit agencies, and occupational social work. I have had the opportunity to provide individual and group therapy, case management, consultations, and supervision to a diverse populations.
I generally practice from the cognitive behavioral and humanistic perspective to help people to evaluate their feelings and their circumstances in relation to the world around them and to help reconstruct their thinking in relation to their challenges and past trauma. Through the humanistic approach, I am able to view the whole person as an individual in relation to their problems and focus on their strengths or positive traits to help empower them to create change in their lives. I also provide solution-focused therapy to help people to strategize how to reach their goals and manage life's challenges in a health manner. I also implement the reality therapy approach that focuses on actively listening to clients and providing helpful feedback to help clients evaluate their emotions and to work towards realistic goals and behavioral changes.
At times it takes a lot of courage to reach out and ask for help. I commend you for taking the first step to make a change. I look forward to working with you.
