Megan Tarshis graduated from Smith College School for Social Work in Northampton, MA, where she learned psychodynamic theory, understanding how past experiences can impact current thoughts, feelings and actions. As part of her graduate training, she completed two full-time internships in Atlanta, the first at Ridgeview Institute and the second at Emory University. She went on to complete a fellowship at the Emory University Counseling Center, where she focused on her primary interest of stress management and college adjustment.

After graduating from Smith, she continued to work at Ridgeview Institute, where she ran therapy groups, worked with families, and provided education. She also continued to work at the Emory University Counseling Center, where she worked with a wide range of symptoms, including stress, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, and others. For ten years, she developed and ran the Emory Stress Clinic, which supports students in learning stress management skills.

This unique combination of training has prepared her to help a wide range of people in her private practice. She believes everyone can benefit from participating in stress management and counseling.

She holds the professional license LCSW, Licensed Clinical Social Worker (CSW005492). She is associated with The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and The Clinical Social Work Association (CSWA).
