Maegan is passionate about connection and creating safe, compassionate spaces for others; She’s an advocate and a survivor.
Maegan is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Waco, Texas, and was nominated by her friend, Denise. Denise says, “I've known Maegan all her life. I've watched her grow, seen her succeed, seen her struggle, and fight for her life. Maegan is a breast cancer survivor, diagnosed at the young adult age of 26, three weeks prior to getting married. Through her diagnosis, treatment, post-treatment, and survivorship (5 years now!), she has not only advocated for herself but others. She shares her experiences so others won't feel alone. She shares her experiences to educate those supporting these individuals so they can understand what the person is going through and how to better support them. She has blogged, been interviewed for articles and podcasts, even repelled off a building to raise breast cancer awareness, and takes her personal experience into her work to help her counsel others.”
Maegan tailors therapy sessions to meet the unique needs and goals of each individual. Denise says, “As a therapist, she specializes in trauma, PTSD, grief, breast cancer, boundaries, difficult relationships, gender identity, and sexuality. Prior to going into private practice, she has been a social worker in hospitals, at a residential home for teenagers, and with people exiting the prison system. As she has said herself, she respects people, everyone is worthy of dignity and respect.”
We celebrate Maegan for “the accepting, loving, and compassionate human being she is!”
