Dr. Kain attended the University of Michigan for her undergraduate degree in Psychology, and received her Masters and PsyD in Clinical Psychology through Antioch University Santa Barbara. Drawing upon her education and training in these arenas, Megan has had stimulating clinical experiences that encompass a wide spectrum of populations: outpatient level of care, in-patient psychiatric hospitalization, in-home therapy with victims of crime, consulting work to develop and enhance clinical programming at in-patient level of care, working with the Department of Child and Family Services conducting psychological assessments of child survivors of abuse as well as infants exposed in utero to illicit substances. Dr. Kain has had the distinct honor of working with nonprofits such as the Center for Health Justice to increase equal access of inmates in the Los Angeles County Jail system to quality mental health services as well as medical services. Most recently, she served as staff psychologist with the California Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections conducting crisis evaluation, mental health assessments, and individual therapy with men at the reception phase of incarceration. Currently, Dr. Kain serves as Clinical Director at Trauma and Wellness Center, an outpatient mental health clinic in Los Angeles.
