Meagan Rivenburgh, LMHC, CASAC

Meagan is a licensed mental health and addictions counselor who, in addition to providing psychotherapy, assists our practice with community outreach, collaboration, and training. Meagan strongly believes the interaction of personal identity, family, community, and career can lead to challenges in multiple life-areas when one aspect becomes particularly stressful. Meagan enjoys assisting individuals and families to identify those aspects of self that have already proven to be successful for each of us, and to discover new ways to apply these to challenging patterns that may no longer be as effective for our goals. Meagan takes a client-centered, integrated approach that often emphasizes psychodynamic and family-systems theories.

Having lived and worked in various parts of the United States, she currently resides in the Albany, New York area. Through her experience personally and professionally, she knows first-hand the challenges of developing and maintaining an alliance in counseling when life and work get in the way and strongly believes in flexibility and accessibility. Having worked with multiple age groups in multiple treatment settings, she has developed a passion for aiding individuals and families with identifying and obtaining personalized supports, services, and resources to increase enjoyment and fulfillment. Meagan believes that counseling can provide an avenue of self-discovery that goes beyond the alleviation of symptoms providing pathways to thrive.

In addition to Meagan’s work with our practice, she enjoys working with other helping professionals to build upon their own strengths in their work and personal lives. In her spare time Meagan enjoys traveling, outdoor activities, and spending time with friends, family, and two very cool miniature schnauzers.
