Welcome to Edgewood’s Personal Counseling Services! My name is Megan Cobb and I very much enjoy working with college students because of the energy on a college campus and the depth in therapeutic work. I have been a part of several college counseling centers and am thrilled to now be at Edgewood for its core values and community feel.
I received my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama, and my bachelor’s degree from the University of Oregon (majoring in psychology and sociology, minoring in women’s & gender studies). I see myself as a generalist who enjoys working with all types of students and presenting concerns. At the same time, my largest interest areas include relationship and family issues, anxiety disorders, trauma work, body image and disordered eating, women’s & gender issues, identity development, career development, and mindfulness.
I use a person-centered approach that views each student as the expert of their own personal journey, while also providing a safe and supportive environment to explore thoughts and emotions that may feel difficult to bring up. I enjoy helping students to identify life patterns (some of which may be helpful, others hindering), how those patterns may have come about, and empowering students to change the patterns they decide are no longer useful to them.
Outside of work, I enjoy being outdoors, going to community and cultural events, traveling, and spending time with friends and family.
