Meg hopes to embody the words of Michele Rosenthal in her work with trauma survivors, “Trauma creates change you don’t choose. Healing is about creating change you do choose.” Meg has expertise in the following modalities: Exposure and Response Prevention (Ex/RP) therapy which is highly effective at treating Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and anxiety.
