“I specialize in treating children, adolescents, and families with a variety of concerns, including depression, anxiety, non-suicidal self-injury, suicidal ideation, emotion dysregulation, eating disorders, and disruptive behavior disorders. I am committed to delivering evidence-based treatments that are developmentally appropriate and approachable, and I tailor my interventions to fit the individual needs of each client. Some modalities I utilize include cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and motivational interviewing. My therapeutic approach is empathic, intuitive, and authentic, and I am passionate about empowering youth and families to find freedom from emotional suffering through both acceptance and change.”
Dr. Egan received her Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology from Baylor University, where she cultivated a cognitive-behavioral, evidence-based approach to treatment with children and adolescents. She completed her predoctoral internship at Alexian Brothers Behavioral Health Hospital in the Chicago area and worked with youth struggling with a variety of presenting problems at the outpatient, intensive outpatient, and partial hospitalization levels of treatment. After receiving her doctorate in 2019, she completed her postdoctoral fellowship in Clinical Child Psychology at Stanford University School of Medicine, where she received intensive training in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) as well as evidence-based treatments for eating disorders, such as family-based treatment (FBT).
