Megan Griffith, M.S, LPC-Associate
Supervised by Jennifer Boswell, LPC-S
Hi, my name is Megan. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a minor in Communication Studies at Texas Tech University. Afterward, I attended The University of North Texas where I earned my Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling specializing in child and adolescent therapy.
After living all over the State of Texas, I decided to move back home to the great city of Houston to be near family. I enjoy being able to connect and spend time with family and love on my precious nieces and nephew whenever the opportunity presents itself.
I believe that social connection and having a space of safety and understanding is vital in our success in navigating the difficulties and challenges that life presents to us. I have experienced the value in this connection myself and feel that my purpose is to offer this connection to others.
I thoroughly enjoy working with individuals across the lifespan and creating a space to communicate and express their needs in a way that is comfortable and developmentally appropriate. I believe people are individualistic and will relate to and engage in therapy in different modalities which we will explore throughout our time together.
I primarily focus on child and adolescent therapy. When working with children, I work within their language of play due to the fact play is a child’s first language and way of communication. I believe through the process of play, children are able to express their feelings, emotions, thoughts and needs. From there, we are able to work toward growth, individual goals, and provide space for healing. When working with adolescents, I meet them where they are at and create an environment comfortable for them to process struggles, grow, and develop skills that are advantageous to their futures. Often, adolescents don’t feel heard and understood and it is my goal to provide a therapeutic environment that fosters trust to help them in their journey of healing.
I have previously provided counseling services at a Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Agency. I supported young children and adolescents who were impacted by trauma. Individuals are impacted by trauma in different ways and throughout the therapeutic process, I provided space that enabled healing, acceptance, connectedness, and behavior modifications?.
I also have experience in Child Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT). Throughout CPRT, I provided support for parents and training on various ways they can integrate aspects of play therapy skills into their daily lives to reduce power struggles and conflicts between the parent-child dyad.
I have provided services to individuals and groups, with concerns including, parenting, depression, anxiety, trauma, and self-esteem. If you have any questions about me or about counseling at our office, please free to contact me. I look forward to working with you soon!
