Meghan Rooney, Psy.D.
Dr. Rooney believes that through a combination of nutrition and evidence-based psychology, individuals with chronic pain can go from feeling helpless to back in charge of their health and well-being!
Prior to CPR, Dr. Rooney, a 12 year employee of the Veterans Affairs hospital, was a founder and clinical coordinator for the Veteran’s Integrative Pain Clinic at the McGuire Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) in Richmond, VA, which offers veterans nutritional, psychological, and medical interventions for chronic pain. This program has been deemed a best practice nationally.
She is very excited to bring this incredible program to members of the Richmond community with CPR!
