Megan Gewitz is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and therapist specializing in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Somatic Experiencing®, and several other trauma healing modalities. With over eleven years of experience working in mental health and substance abuse, her clinical areas of expertise include borderline personality disorder, addiction, eating disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), complex PTSD, and self-harm.
Megan is a member of the second cohort of the Linehan Institute’s Behavioral Tech Comprehensive Training for Independent Practitioners Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Intensive Training. She has also undergone training in the DBT Prolonged Exposure Protocol for PTSD, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, DBT for PTSD, as well as Somatic Experiencing®.
Megan’s style is warm, straightforward, and radically genuine. She was drawn to DBT and Somatic Experiencing® because these modalities blend Western psychotherapeutic techniques with Eastern contemplative concepts and practices. In addition to her clinical credentials, Megan is a certified Sivananda Yoga Teacher and has attended multiple trainings with Regena Thomashauer, or “Mama Gena,” on feminine empowerment and liberation. She was also privileged to take part in a silent meditation retreat with the creator of DBT, Marsha Linehan. For several years, Megan designed and ran a yoga and mindfulness-based process group as part of her therapy practice. She often incorporates yoga postures into her work with clients and firmly believes in the power of mindfulness, yoga, and Eastern meditative practices to bring about emotional healing.
Megan aims to provide quality, specialized treatment at a reasonable rate, with the goal of making effective treatment available to all who need it. As a graduate of Fordham University School of Social Work, she currently serves as a private practitioner focusing on comprehensive DBT—particularly DBT via telehealth—and Somatic Experiencing® work. Her clients describe her as sincere, dedicated, and caring. Outside of her therapy practice, Megan loves exercising and practicing yoga—especially on yoga retreats around the world! She feels most at peace on long scooter rides across the rice paddy fields in Bali, one of her favorite places in the world.
I am so grateful to have gone through the journey with Megan and to come out a free individual. I have the clarity to now heal the wounds that so heavily weighed me down. Not only do I notice an improvement, but I was able to reconnect important relationships and hear responses like ‘You are calmer’ & ‘You have matured’.
“The wound is the place where the light enters you.”
