Megan Lawler, MSW, LCSW

Owner and Clinical Director

Having worked in the field of mental health for many years, Megan opened Harmony Counseling to fuel her passion for helping families work through the obstacles that are preventing them from growing, communicating and strengthening. Whether your family is dealing with anxiety, OCD, trauma, communication challenges, parent-child conflict, or navigating neurodivergence, Megan supports and guides you in your journey of developing tools that will significantly improve the quality of your life and find harmony in your home.

Megan is also passionate about teaching and supporting the growth of other clinicians.  She has created Harmony Counseling on the foundation of a "Teaching Practice", where she directly supervises, educates and trains less seasoned clinicians in the development and honing of their own clinical strengths and styles - all rooted in holistic family work.

Megan graduated from the University of Scranton in 1994 and received her MSW from Marywood University in 1997.

Megan’s family systems therapy background is the foundation of her clinical work. Her experience and clinical success are rooted in the idea that to effect change in relationship or the behavior of others, one must first change how they show up. “Parents are the biggest influence in the lives of their children, but not with what they tell them, but with what they model for them.” With experience in areas of chronic mental illness, adolescent residential treatment, family therapy and groups, couples work, as well as expertise in living with and advocating for families managing ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorders, Megan’s kind, holistic and direct approach (along with a healthy dose of humor) will allow you to see how capable and strong your family is.

Megan is also trained in SPACE (Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions), a clinical intervention focusing on work with parents. By intentionally and strategically reducing their own accommodations of their child or teen’s anxiety and OCD, families see the anxiety decrease significantly.

In her spare time, Megan enjoys reading, attending concerts, and spending time with her husband and two sons (when they are home from college). She also loves to golf and is learning to play pickleball.
