Not currently accepting patients

Hi there, I'm Meghan!

Hi! My name is Meghan Gallagher, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with over 15 years of experience. I am currently working via telehealth throughout New York State. I work with adults and specialize in anxiety, depression, stress, and loss. My holistic practice is client and strength-based focused, and I utilize a range of evidence-based interventions such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Mindfulness Interventions.

My approach

My therapeutic approach is very specific to each client and what their needs and goals are. I focus on their individual strengths and create a safe space to explore various frameworks to see what best suits each individual. I commonly use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused Brief Therapy.

My focus

I work with adults of all ages as they navigate various life stressors and transitions. We work on building skills, improving support systems, and developing self-care and mindfulness practices. I assist my clients in developing a better outlook on life and improving relationships.

My communication style

My communication style is friendly and personable. I listen without judgment and strive to create a strong therapeutic relationship where the client feels comfortable exploring their emotions, experiences, and perspectives.

My journey to mental healthcare

I have always loved getting to know people. I also have a desire to make a positive impact on the lives of others.

My goals for you

My approach to goal setting with clients is working together to determine what you would like to accomplish. Each goal is client-centered, supportive, realistic, and achievable. We'll work together in selecting meaningful goals.

My first session with you

In our first session, my goal is to create a safe place for you to be able to describe how you are feeling and what brought you to therapy. I hope to build a connection and really listen to how you are currently experiencing your life. We'll then work together to make a plan on how to move forward.
