Dr. Meghan Clifford (she/her) is a neuropsychologist and therapist. She works with children, adolescents, and adults. Those who work with Dr. Meghan are often experiencing the impacts of their complex medical, psychological, and social histories or are looking for support to adjust to different challenges in their life.

A Note from Dr. Meghan:

I am passionate about helping those I work with to learn about their brain– what comes easy, what’s harder, and how different things in their life may have impacted how their brain has developed. I hope to help you understand ‘you’ a bit better– how you think, feel, and act, while lessening some of the shame you may have collected throughout your life. I aim to connect you with resources inside and outside of yourself so you can do the things you want with the incredible brain you have.

I have been honored to work with hundreds of clients from many walks of life throughout my career so far. I take seriously the importance of respecting cultural differences and continuing to learn so I can provide you with a judgment free space where you don’t have to explain yourself.

At the center of my practice, I hold the belief that those I am working with (and their caregivers) are doing the best they can with the resources they have. You will probably notice me using humor and sharing knowledge in our work together. I aim to be transparent and open while knowing that building a therapeutic relationship can take time and be difficult to develop given one’s past experiences. I don’t expect you to tell me everything, especially not all at once. I believe in the innate courage, strength, and wisdom that exist in each person. I’ve come to believe that a person’s past experiences and relationships can make it harder to hear and know their ‘real’ self. I hope to support you in finding your purpose, discovering what you love and value, and help you build a caring relationship with yourself and your body.

Dr. Clifford also works alongside Scout, a black lab, to provide animal assisted intervention services for both therapy and neuropsychological evaluations. She primarily operates out of an AIR Network modality and is also trained in DBT and CBT.
