Megan Celestina, M.A.
Hello! I’m Megan Celestina and I was Elevate Counseling's Clinical Intern through July 2020. I'm awaiting my state licensure and will return to Elevate to work with clients in September.
I'm passionate about empowering others to recognize their strengths and abilities using reason, humor, creativity, and unconditional positive regard. I find myself using Cognitive-Behavioral and Constructivist techniques with clients. I believe that clients are the experts of their own lives. If I've provided a safe space for you to share and process your thoughts and feelings, then I feel fulfilled in my role. I look forward to meeting you!
My experience includes:
- Anger Management
- Cognitive distortions and core beliefs
- Career Counseling
- CBT skills
- Expressive arts therapy
- Grief & loss
- Group Therapy
- Mindfulness and deep breathing
- Narrative therapy
I plan to graduate with a Master's in Counseling from Arizona State University in May 2020. I completed my Bachelor's in Psychology in Cincinnati, Ohio at Xavier University graduating Magna Cum Laude.
My long-term goals are to become licensed in Arizona as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and work in private practice. I look forward to this opportunity to develop my skills and grow as a counselor with you!
