Maegan Tanner

Hey there, I'm Maegan (she/hers) and I'm in my last year of my Master's degree (Marriage and Family Therapy) at the University of San Francisco. I also earned my BA in Sociology from UC Santa Cruz. I'm a lover of the ocean and the mountains, camping, reading a good novel in front of a cozy fire, and cooking for others. During this upcoming year I'm excited to explore supporting our students and their families, as we are all still moving through COVID and attempting to regain pieces of "normalcy". I'm also pumped to learn effective interventions and approaches in therapy with youth.
