Meredythe earned her Masters in Counseling Psychology from Chatham University and received specific training in mood and anxiety disorders and suicide prevention during her internship at WPIC’s STAR-Center. Before joining The Center for OCD and Anxiety, Meredythe worked in a variety of settings, including outpatient, intensive outpatient, schools, family-based, and mobile therapy.
As Brené Brown says, “we don’t want to be uncomfortable. We want a quick and dirty ‘how-to’ list for happiness. I don’t fit that bill. Never have. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to skip over the hard stuff, but it just doesn’t work. We don’t change, we don’t grow, and we don’t move forward without the work.” Meredythe helps to guide clients through this work with the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), & Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). She operates from a strengths-based perspective and works to integrate elements of positive psychology and other treatment modalities into her approach.
Meredythe understands how hard and scary it can be to engage in therapy but firmly believes in the process’s ability to alleviate suffering. She values each client’s uniqueness and wants to help folks develop the self-awareness and skills needed to go from surviving to thriving!
In Meredythe’s free time, she enjoys spending time with her dog, family, and friends & exploring new hobbies. She values being a life-long-learner and never wants to stop trying new things.
