Registered Psychologist

Megan adopts a strengths-based approach to actively empower clients to work towards their goals, learning to use their assets to catalyze positive change in areas of challenge. Megan’s therapeutic work is grounded in cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT); however, she believes that all interventions should be tailored to respect the unique needs of each client.

Megan has a range of experience working with children, adolescents and families in a variety of contexts, including individual and group-based therapy at CASA, Child, Adolescent and Family Services; individual and group-based intervention for students attending Edmonton Public mental health schools; individual therapy for in-need children enrolled in the Boston public and private school systems; social skills intervention to support children and adolescent to successfully navigate the intricacies of social communication. She also has experience consulting and collaborating with a multidisciplinary team, including social workers, psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses and teachers. Megan is a fresh-face at Sojourn and is very excited to work in a new setting, with a new team!

In Megan’s spare-time, she enjoys keeping active and spending time with family and friends.
