Presenter: Megan Gibbard Kline, MSW, LICSW

Prior to launching a private practice, I gained twenty years of progressive experience working to prevent and end youth and young adult homelessness, including direct service, nonprofit leadership, county government-based system change, and national movement building. Providing therapy and clinical supervision in this chapter of my career is a long-awaited dream, one where I wholly commit myself to the realization of the depth dimension within myself and others. I received my Masters in Social Work from the University of Washington in 2004 and have held my LICSW since 2009. I identify as white, queer, cisgender, a student of the Christian contemplative tradition, and a mother. Woven into my work is a passion for children, my faith in the spark of love present in all people, and my own profound human vulnerability. I am committed to advancing justice in my community, both with my family and in my work. I spend as much time as possible on the Salish Sea with my family and our old sailboat.
