Meagan Lasecke, MS
Psychology Practicum Student
Meagan Lasecke graduated with a BS in psychology from Saint Mary’s College of California in 2019. She received her M.S. in Clinical Psychology from Palo Alto University (PAU) in 2022 and is a doctoral candidate in the clinical psychology PhD program at PAU. At PAU, she is a member of Dr. Eduardo Bunge’s research lab, the Children and Adolescents Psychotherapy and Technology (CAPT). In this lab, she has completed several projects and created an online training study for her dissertation which seeks to understand clinicians’ attitudes and perceptions on videoconference therapy with children and adolescents. At Stanford, she is working with Tracy (Vargo) Jordan, PhD, Lara Foland-Ross, PhD and Allan L. Reiss, M.D., as part of the Brains, Genes, and Puberty (BGAP) Study in the Center for Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences Research (CIBSR). As part of this study, Meagan administers and scores neuropsychological and psychodiagnostic assessments (telehealth and in-person) with children and their caregivers to investigate the development of brain and behavior in boys with and without Klinefelter Syndrome (KS). Through her participation in the Pediatric Behavioral Health emphasis at PAU, she has been providing teletherapy and in-person services to youth and families within outpatient clinics, hospitals, and school-based settings. Meagan’s professional aspiration is to become a pediatric psychologist supporting medically fragile children through consultation/liaison (C/L) services, brief assessment, and intervention within a multidisciplinary medical setting.
