Meghan Gowan is a pre-doctoral psychology intern from William James College, where she is working toward obtaining her Psy.D. with a concentration in Global Mental Health. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology and sociology from Keene State College, and her Master of Arts degree in clinical mental health counseling with a trauma specialization from Lesley University.
Meghan embraces an authentic, warm and collaborative style in her therapeutic approach. Her objective is to create a safe, nonjudgmental and supportive space that helps to facilitate growth, insight and healing.
Meghan’s clinical experience has been characterized by a broad diversity of settings and populations. Having had opportunities to provide individual and group psychotherapy to children, adolescents, adults and families has given Meghan exposure to a spectrum of levels of care, presenting concerns, diagnoses, developmental stages, and cultural backgrounds.
Meghan is committed to taking a flexible and integrative stance toward therapy, drawing on elements of strength-based, relational, mindfulness-based and psychodynamic perspectives, in addition to more behaviorally-oriented and values-based approaches, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
