About me

Hello to you! I am a licensed clinical social worker in Pennsylvania with 17 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients presenting with a wide range of concerns including anxiety, mood issues, identity development, trauma, and struggle to find meaning and purpose, to name a few. I earned my Master of Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania in 2005, and I take seriously the importance of ongoing learning with regard to theory and practice of psychotherapy.

My therapy style is warm and engaging with a strengths-based and client-centered approach. I especially resonate with an understanding of human experience grounded in Humanist and Existentialist Theory and Therapy. In working with clients in the process of the support, growth, change, or healing that they are seeking, I incorporate strategies and techniques from a variety of approaches like Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness. I also value the incorporation of a social justice-oriented understanding of the ways that clients' concerns may be caused or effected by systemic oppression such as racism, homophobia, transphobia, misogyny, ablism, ageism, or any other ways that clients' identities may experience difficulty in the world.

I am a White, queer, able-bodied ciswoman (pronouns: she/her) of European descent, living and working in Pennsylvania which is the traditional land of the Lenni Lenape people.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Meghan Sullivan. 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 have been working with Meghan for over 2 years at this point and I highly recommend her. She has helped me work through and cope with a wide variety of issues and a long history of trauma, as well as helping me on my journey to discover myself and accept my identity. She pushes me to be true to myself and accept myself, and most importantly to give myself grace when I struggle with it. I am very confident in her expertise and skills and I think she is a great therapist for anyone, but especially those in the LGBTQ community.
