Megan McCarthy is a temporary licensed psychologist under the Arizona Board of Psychological Examiners. She is under direct supervision, until she completes her postdoctoral training hours and passes the EPPP. Dr. McCarthy is excited to have returned to Arizona to again practice in her home state.
Dr. McCarthy's passion is the ardent advocating for mental health services to Arizona communities, and working to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness. As a passionate resident clinician, Dr. McCarthy encourages all to always consider that one's mental health be treated as important as one's physical health. MIND. BODY. SOUL. One cannot thrive without the other!
Dr. McCarthy's treatment approach is rather unique as she has fun loving animal assistants! Dr. Quinn aka 'Anxiety Cat' and Counselor Sol aka the 'Curiously Cautious Hedgehog'. Both assistants provide a unique experience for clients, and offer a calming presence. Dr. Quinn is a natural at sensing anxiety, and will often approach those with anxiety in a gentle manner to help soothe the client. Counselor Sol is great with children, and teaches them it is okay to be curious and how to respectfully build boundaries.
