Meg (she/her) is an associate therapist under the supervision of Dr. Chia-Ying Chou (PSY30161). She graduated from Columbia University School of Social Work in May 2022, receiving her Master of Social Work in Advanced Clinical Practice. Meg received her meditation teaching certification from the Nalanda Institute in NYC, where she studied (and is forever a student of) Tibetan Buddhist-based meditation.
Meg has an integrative and transpersonal approach to therapy, using mindfulness-based and compassion-focused modalities to incorporate the mind, body, and soul. Meg puts an emphasis on inner child healing, attachment trauma, and building an awareness around thought patterns and behaviors that are no longer serving us. Meg believes in the power of acceptance and uncovering our own inner guidance. She works with individuals who are experiencing anxiety, depression, loss, life transitions, or an overall sense of just feeling lost.
Outside of work, Meg enjoys practicing meditation and contemplative practices, and spending time in nature with her dog Alfie.

Words from Meg about her approach:
I don’t think of “healing” as a synonym for “fixing.” Rather, I view healing as a daily practice of awareness that allows us to uncover blockages that keep us from remembering our inherent wholeness. I believe that we all carry deep inner wisdom of how to heal ourselves, and my job as a therapist is to support you and guide you in your healing journey, knowing that you’re the expert of your own experience. I approach therapy through a lens of loving acceptance, so that we can notice what is unfolding with compassion for our past, present and future selves
