Nazneen Meacham is a Licensed Professional Counselor with 15 years of experience treating a variety of psychological needs across multiple levels of care. Since completing her master’s degree in 2005, she went on to become a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania in 2010 and more recently New Jersey, and also achieved board certification in art therapy. She has worked in an in-patient psychiatric hospital providing group therapy and later provided clinical supervision, navigated patient and family concerns, and worked with patients in a 1:1 capacity as the Director of Counseling and Patient Advocate. During this time her dedication to providing quality personalized care, led her to pursue and complete her training in EMDR Therapy as an evidenced-based therapy. She continued her career by moving to an outpatient group practice in 2014 as a clinical therapist where she focused on her support for the LGBTQ community and also trauma treatment. In order to provide a more comprehensive and inclusive approach to care, she completed a post-masters certificate through Widener University in Transgender Mental Health. She now serves as Co-Director of the Gender and Sexuality Development Clinic at CHOP in Voorhees, NJ.
