I’m Dr. Megan Carney (you can call me Megan) and I help people who are worried there might be something wrong with themselves or their child. I provide an individualized evaluation to meet your needs and answer your most pressing questions. I’ve been helping people answer questions about themselves and their children since 2012 and have taught many others how to do the same.
I know it is not easy finding someone you trust to share deep, personal things about yourself. You should know that I only share information with your permission or when required by law. There is little that you could say that will shock me so please, don’t hold back on my account! I also know you don’t live under a rock somewhere which means the world and your experiences effect you - I want us to think about how those things impact what is going on with you. And while I might not know exactly how it feels to have lived your life, I can tell you that your feelings are valid and let you know if what you’re experiencing is a common response or not (spoiler alert, usually it is common). I know there is not just one way to be and we each have to face our own struggles the best way we can.
You deserve the relief that comes with feeling heard, knowing answers, and having a plan for how to get better. If you are interested in learning how we can answer your questions and stop feeling hopeless, schedule your free 15 minute call here now to find out how ! If you don’t see a time that works for call me at 208-843-3149 and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
Need to know a little more about me first? I’m a licensed psychologist with a PhD in School Psychology from the University of Missouri. While my degree is in school psychology, I completed a lot of training with counseling and clinical psychology folks and consider myself well-rounded when it comes to psychology. My training and passions are heavily focused on the impact of bad or scary experiences (you might call it trauma), emotional and behavioral problems such as anxiety and anger outbursts, and being a culturally competent and empathic professional. I’ve been learning Spanish since middle school and became fluent while studying abroad and living with a host family in Valdivia, Chile. The large majority of evaluations I’ve done have a question about trauma or negative life experiences and their impact. I’m passionate about making sure people aren’t getting the wrong diagnosis because someone overlooked trauma, culture, or context. I’m also picky about using the right tests for the right person. I’m honest, but nice about it. I love doing evaluations for immigration purposes and have testified in immigration court. Maybe I should be intimidated by court but I’m not, probably because I’m married to a passionate attorney. If you see me outside of the professional world I might be enjoying karaoke, biking, practicing yoga, running after my energetic kiddo, or just being a bit of an introverted nerd.
