Meghan McCracken CSWA
I hold a Masters degree in Clinical Social Work from Rutgers University. I have six years of experience working in death and dying. I have experience in counseling individuals, children, and families in a variety of settings. Meghan is under the supervision of Alberta Torres, LCSW.
Individual, Family and Couples counseling.
Although my education and background is versed in various theoretical foundations, I do not hold fast to any one specific theory or method and greatly align with a person-centered Humanistic and Existential approach honoring each client as a unique individual with their own personal experiences and needs. I strive to provide a non-judgmental, safe space in order to establish trust and rapport in every therapy session. It is imperative for every single individual to feel seen and heard by me. I believe in the mind-body connection, trauma-informed care and utilizing your creative mind to establish coping skills and self-care strategies. I promote healing by carefully listening and reflecting key questions when necessary. I am currently working in one of Portland's finest elementary schools for Western Psychological & Counseling Services on the school-based team. I often use CBT, DBT, child-centered play therapy, and art therapy when working with students.
