Megan McDavid, LCSW, MEd, CST
I am very comfortable discussing sensitive topics and provide both individual therapy and couples therapy. I have extensive experience working with people from diverse backgrounds and belief systems. It’s important to me that that therapy is a space for all people to feel safe and accepted. I specialize in sexuality issues and working with LGBQI, Trans*/GNC, kinky, and poly-identified clients. I also work with many heterosexual and monogamous clients. My approach fosters a space where you can be unapologetically YOU. My perspective is sex-positive and uses a harm reduction lens. It is important to me that we find what works for you, so I truly value your feedback in the therapeutic process.
I have training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Insight-oriented psychotherapy. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in both Oregon and New York State. I am certified as a Sex Therapist through AASECT (American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists) and a member of WPATH (World Professional Association for Transgender Health). Formerly, I served as a staff therapist at various non-profit clinics specializing in LGBTQ and sexuality issues as well as substance use concerns. I received my Master’s Degree in Social Work at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College in New York City and a Master’s Degree in Education with a specialization in Human Sexuality and Sex Therapy from Widener University in Pennsylvania. I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Playwriting from New York University.
I am a native of Colorado and spent 15 years living in New York City prior to settling in Portland.
