Megan Brannan, PhD-
I am a Counseling Psychologist and Certified Eating Disorders Specialist who is licensed in the state of Texas (no. 36670) and practices in the Houston area. I earned my M.A. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Missouri at Columbia in 2004 and went on to earn my PhD from the University of North Texas Counseling Psychology Doctoral Program, an American Psychological Association (APA)-accredited program.
I provide individual, couple, group, and family therapy services to adolescents and adults. In addition to providing evidence-based (i.e., scientifically supported) psychotherapies to address a broad range of emotional and relational difficulties (e.g., depression, relational challenges, adjustment to change, stress management), I also specialize in:
I advanced my expertise in these areas through my predoctoral training experiences at the University of North Texas Psychology Clinic, the UNT Counseling and Testing Center, and the UT-Dallas Student Counseling Center. Moreover, I completed my Predoctoral Internship at Purdue University’s Counseling and Psychological Services, specializing in the treatment of eating disorders. After graduating from UNT, I completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Delaware’s Center for Counseling and Student Development with a concentration in body image and disordered eating concerns. Following my postdoctoral fellowship, I served as the Eating Disorder Treatment Specialist at University Counseling Services at Virginia Commonwealth University. I returned to Texas in 2013 in order to be closer to family and served as a staff psychologist at the University of Houston’s Counseling and Psychological Services before joining the staff at Houston Eating Disorder Center as a primary therapist. Houston Eating Disorder Center became Eating Recovery Center of Houston in June of 2015, where I worked as a primary therapist until September 2016 when I left to focus on private practice.
Currently, I am a member of the Houston Eating Disorders Specialists organization, the International Association for Eating Disorders Professionals, the Academy for Eating Disorders, and the American Psychological Association.
I am married and have two fur babies named Pickles and Happy. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, entertaining, being outdoors, traveling with my husband, and spending time with friends and family.
