I believe in a person’s ability to develop and grow, become autonomous and authentic. I utilize different techniques and approaches to meet my clients’ need in order to help them find success in therapy. Specifically, I utilize a combination of Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Family Dynamics and Person Centered Therapy to create a treatment outline that will best fit my clients’ needs. I have experience working with individuals, couples and families on issues related to addiction, infidelity and trust, self esteem, depression, anxiety, life changes, divorce, identifying goals, grief and loss as well as caregiver stress and elder adult issues and transitions.
I graduated from Centenary University in Hackettstown, NJ with a Master’s of Arts in Clinical Counseling. I also received a Master’s of Science in Addictions Counseling from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, AZ. Through my internships and post graduate work I have been involved with traditional outpatient care as well as higher levels of care such as Intensive Outpatient and Partial Hospitalization.
My approach is warm and interactive, I believe in asking thoughtful questions that cause clients to think and look deeper. I also inquire about my clients’ beliefs and background to get a better picture of who they are and what shaped them. It also allows me to be sensitive and respectful of cultural needs and differences.
I respond to messages between 8am-8pm Monday through Thursday, 8pm-6pm on Fridays, 8am-2pm on Saturdays, messages left on Sunday will be responded to on Monday morning.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Meghan Quinlan-Ilich. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
I love Meghan. She provides such unbiased, eagle eyed, advice and help. She also checks in on me when I forget to schedule appointments and I’m grateful for that bc sometimes it’s anxiety induced.
Meghan is also super professional and amicable and I got to say, my most favorite therapist to date.
Meghan is great. She is easy to talk to and gives things to explore or think about that I would never have thought of. So glad to have her.
It took awhile to find the right therapist for me, but meghan is the best and i am so glad i found her!
Meghan is incredibly intuitive, asks key questions that make me think and consider aspects of myself and my life in ways I hadn't thought about before. I can feel Meghan's genuine desire to help me and her knowledge on how to do so is clear by her input and suggestions.
I have been seeing Meghan Quinlan-Ilich for a few months and I highly recommend her! She is a great listener and has made it easy to build a trusting relationship. She asks the right questions and is great at keeping the conversation going!
Meghan is so easy to talk to and is very wise and opens your eyes to a lot. Definitely recommend for anyone especially a woman in their 20s!
Meghan is great at listening and asking the tough questions you wouldn’t think to ask. She’s kind, considerate and helpful. I’d highly recommend her. I felt the first session was very direct and helpful.
Meghan is wonderful. She is very attentive and catches on quickly, - not only to the issues but also to the potential underlying causes. It's only been a few weeks but I'm impressed with her level of support, as well as her approach to listening and offering practical advice to take on life's challenges.
She’s great. After just a few conversations, I felt like she grasped the very core of much of what I was describing/expressing- her ability to accurately summarize and conceptualize it was very impressive. I felt truly “seen” and understood. I appreciate that she did not allow me to mentally box myself in and has offered me lots of very helpful insight. I would highly recommend her as a counselor.
