About Me

Megan Piscitelle, LCSWA, MSW

They/them pronouns

I graduated from Western Carolina University with my Master's of Social Work in May of 2022. Before that, I spent several years working in harm reduction and community mental health.  

I was diagnosed with autism later in life, and figuring out this part of myself gave me context I'd never had before. Discovering my gender identity was another important part of the puzzle. I'm honored and excited to be in a position to work with others along their journey, and offer them the kind of support that I often lacked when I was younger.

As a non-binary, neurodivergent therapist,  I hope to provide an affirming space that allows my clients to accept all parts of themselves, and celebrate their identities.I specialize in working with young adults, including college students and young professionals, who are queer-identified and/or neurodivergent. 

 I love learning about new therapeutic techniques, the nervous system, and exploring new research, but I know that there is no one-size-fits all approach to therapy. The most important thing for me is to offer empathy, validation, and acknowledgement that you are the expert on yourself! We will work together at your own pace, building a relationship that feels safe and supportive.

I bring a social justice lens to my work, which means naming in sessions many of the ways this world makes it harder to thrive. I welcome the hard things you might carry into our time together but also humor, creativity, or any other way you need to show up on a given day.

In my spare time you might find me hanging out with my cat, Juniper, playing Dungeons and Dragons or Zelda, hiking, or doing improv.
