Megan Herrington, LCPC

Megan earned her Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from Boston College where she focused her clinical training and research efforts on trauma recovery and approaching mental health with a social justice lens. She has a passion for meeting new people and doing her best to understand their experiences. She loves working with people of diverse backgrounds: culturally, racially, and in terms of sexual orientation and gender identity.

Megan found her start as a therapist by working with survivors of trauma at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. She has enjoyed working in a variety of settings since then, such as behavioral health hospitals, in inpatient, partial hospital and intensive outpatient levels of care, and an opiate detoxification clinic. Megan has also volunteered in high school and university settings, providing crisis intervention and facilitating groups.

Megan specializes in working with children, adolescents, and families and in providing trauma-informed care for individuals of all ages. Based on her experience working in psychiatric PHP and IOP programs, Megan is offering post-hospitalization care for children and adolescents transitioning back to school. Megan also enjoys working with personality disorders and mood disorders.

Megan takes an action-oriented approach in her work and draws from a variety of techniques, such as CBT, DBT and ACT. She is flexible in her working style and sees each client as an individual, yet also a participant in a broader cultural context, where symptoms can be seen as rational reactions to environmental stress. Megan also utilizes the mind-body connection in her work and emphasizes the role that health behaviors play in mental health.

Megan is happy to be offering virtual counseling sessions as well as in-person therapy.
