15 years of experience

Welcome to my profile! I'm Megan Hay, a compassionate and experienced Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) dedicated to empowering individuals facing challenges related to domestic violence, chronic illness, and LGBTQ+. With over 15 years of clinical experience, I provide a safe and supportive environment where clients can explore their emotions, heal from trauma, and work towards positive change. My therapeutic approach is holistic, client-centered, and culturally sensitive, recognizing the unique experiences and identities of each person I work with. I strive to create a therapeutic alliance built on trust, empathy, and mutual respect, fostering a collaborative partnership in the healing journey.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

During the first session, I conduct an initial assessment to gather more information about your mental health, emotional well-being, and relevant factors contributing to their current situation.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

In my professional practice, I have successfully guided countless individuals and families through the complex process of coping with the profound emotions of grief, chronic illness, depression, anxiety, parenting, behavioral/academic issues, divorce, and low self-esteem. I worked for multiple years with children and my clients often say I am relatable and show empathy.

About Megan Hay

My treatment methods

Trauma-Focused CBT

I use trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) that aims to help individuals process traumatic experiences, manage symptoms, and develop healthy coping mechanisms. I involve structured and a phased approach, addressing the impact of trauma on various domains of an individual's life.

Acceptance and commitment (ACT)

I employ ACT techniques that work collaboratively with clients to develop psychological flexibility—the ability to adapt to changing situational demands while pursuing meaningful goals.


Strength-Based is an approach I use that focuses on an individual's strengths, resources, and capacities rather than solely on their problems or deficits.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I integrate CBT into my practice, by working with clients to identify and challenge their negative thought patterns, develop coping strategies, and set and achieve specific goals.


Attachment-based therapy is a therapeutic approach I utilize that focuses on the impact of early relationships and attachments on an individual's emotional and psychological well-being. This type of therapy is rooted in attachment theory, which suggests that early relationships, especially with primary caregivers, shape a person's expectations, relationships, and overall mental health.
