Meet the Team
Megan A Gallagher, CRC, LMHC, Owner
Megan Gallagher graduated Summa Cum Laude from Humboldt State University in Arcata, CA, with a Bachelors Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. Her primary areas of study were Psychology, Leadership, and Communications. She then completed her Masters in Rehabilitation Counseling* at Salve Regina University in Newport, RI. She is a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor which means she is professionally trained to help people with any type of disability (physical, behavioral, mental health, developmental, etc) become more integrated into society and reach the highest level of self-sufficiency and the greatest degree of happiness possible. She is also a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in both RI and MA.
Megan specializes in behavior modification (regardless of the cause), trauma, and employment/vocational concerns. She is trained in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) which is recognized as an evidence-based treatment for psychological trauma and depression by the SAMHSA National Registry of Evidence Based Programs and Practices (NREPP). Megan believes in treating each client as a whole person and not just a diagnosis.
Megan opened Here to There Counseling in 2016, where she continues to see both individuals and couples that want to not only strengthen the skills needed to live a happy life but are also looking to learn how to enjoy their journey.
In 2019, Megan then decided to expand her services into coaching and personal empowerment (which can be done with clients anywhere in the world), and Here to There Wellness was born. It is through HTW that she can reach more people by not only offering online coaching services but also by providing numerous online programs that are meant to simulate actual in-person coaching sessions. Megan created the Root to Fruit program by taking the top issues discussed in her treatment room and outlining ways to reach success.
