Megan McKernan, 

LCSW-C

Clinical Director/Therapist

Megan received her Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of Maryland, Baltimore in 2010. She then worked in the foster care setting for three years before starting her dream job as a therapist, all in various areas surrounding Washington, D.C. 


Specializing in Anxiety, Depression, and ADHD, Megan has treated clients of all ages and ethnicities, but especially adolescents and young adults who are Latino and/or Black/African American. Megan's overall passion is for mental health and for everyone to have equal access to mental health resources.


Clarity Wellness Solutions was born from that passion. With time and space given to the self, clarity is possible for all. We rarely take time for ourselves to process traumas. Everyone has their own trauma. What matters is how we deal with it.
