She takes a creative approach to her work with children, adolescents, and families, incorporating elements of art, music, poetry, and play therapy in her clinical practice.

Dr. Meagan’s interest in helping others process difficult life experiences began at a very early age when she helped family members and friends process feelings about significant life issues. Storiez stems from Dr. Meagan’s own personal experiences with trauma, as well as her clinical work with children, adolescents, and families. During her free time, she enjoys making artwork, including mosaics, collage, and alcohol ink illustrations. She also enjoys traveling.

Creative Work

Dr. Meagan is a mixed media mosaic artist who works in alcohol ink, collage, and tempered glass. She creates layered artwork to express inner emotions, personal experiences, and elements of her life narrative. Her work has been featured in juried art shows sponsored by the Society of American Mosaic Artists, Philadelphia’s City Hall, Trenton Artworks, Wheaton Arts, and the Mosaic Society of Philadelphia. She exhibited her mixed media pieces in two solo art shows, “Reflections in Glass” at the University of Pennsylvania and “Ink and Glass, Trauma and Strength” at Jefferson University. She not only creates mixed media mosaics as an expressive tool to tell her story, but she also uses the creative arts to support trauma survivors in healing from their own experiences.
