“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 leads PBH’s Child, Teen, & Family Clinic, where she hopes to expand high-quality and evidence-based services for youth while fostering a supportive community for clinicians. She has worked at different levels of care with youth struggling with a variety of presenting problems, and she has specialized training in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) as well as evidence-based treatments for eating disorders, such as family-based treatment (FBT). In addition to her work at PBH, Dr. Egan is an adjunct faculty member at Stanford University School of Medicine, where she serves as an external supervisor for the psychology internship program.
