Megan Coral MS, LMFT
Megan Coral MS, LMFT, is a Northern Chapter member and currently serves as Secretary/Trasurer of the Chapter Board. We are pleased to present a short intro to Megan here. Thanks for joining the team, Megan!
My first introduction to therapy occurred when I was given the opportunity to observe group therapy at a bereavement center as part of a thanatology class (thanatology is the scientific study of death and the practices associated with it, including the study of the needs of the terminally ill and their families.) I declared psychology as a major in my first year of college and was unsure what career path to take after graduation. The director of the center was a LMFT and I found her approach to bereavement, which included treating individual members and the family unit together, fascinating.

The article also says "By 2020, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) predicts this occupation will grow by 41.2 percent, much faster than the average for all occupations." This is heartening news during difficult economic times and times in which health care providers are feeling the strain of so much change.
