Dr. Megan Kain, PsyD Clinical Director
Don't let your struggle become your identity!
Dr. Kain’s current role as a licensed clinical psychologist is a function of her cumulative life experiences.

Dr. Kain attended the University of Michigan for her undergraduate degree in Psychology, and she received her Masters and PsyD in Clinical Psychology through Antioch University Santa Barbara. Drawing upon her education and training in these arenas, Dr. Kain has had a wide spectrum of stimulating clinical experiences: 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 where she conducted 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.

She is a lifelong advocate for progressive causes and is passionate about LGBTQ rights. Dr. Kain considers her role as Clinical Director with Overland an exciting platform to apply the experiential wisdom and tools accrued and to be able to contribute to a treatment team approach that fully meets the unique needs of our population, and to—overall—stoke hope.

Andrew Broz Partner/Director of Admissions
Life will always get messy…Suffering is optional
Andrew started his career in acting and modeling at a very young age in a small town in Pennsylvania. To further pursue his career, he moved to NYC at the age of 16 and was immediately working as an agent at Ford Model Agency. By age 25, Andrew relocated to Los Angeles to fulfill his role as the COO of Elite Model Management and went on to later fulfill roles such as casting director and consultant to clients such as Playboy, Vogue, Verizon, Target, Christian Dior, Lancôme, and dozens of others. He was living the "dream life” filled with money, travel, and glamour—yet, he was inexplicably unhappy. There were a few major earthquakes in Andrew’s life: losing a home and assets, experiencing a traumatic divorce, and, finally, experiencing a complete loss of identity. Andrew was spiritually starved, emotionally imbalanced, and was experiencing true dis-ease; he simply could not live like that anymore. Andrew finally took charge of his life by deciding to take on a specific course of study: the study of himself. To look inside and out and to understand his own emotions and psyche. Through the difficult yet treasured process, Andrew learned how to practice many skills that have helped him up until today. Andrew believes in taking a balanced and holistic approach to recovery, including physical, mental, and spiritual aspects.
