Meg Batterson, LCSW, holds a Masters of Science degree in Social Work from Columbia University, a certificate of completion in relationally based treatment modalities from the Relational Center and is licensed as an LCSW in New York State. She works with individuals and couples, adolescents and adults struggling with a wide range of issues including, but not limited to, anxiety, depression, mood disorders, grief, creative blocks, life transitions, eating issues, relationship difficulties, isolation, work/family/school stress and wellness. Before Meg began work as a psychotherapist she worked as a professional modern dancer. She values the mind/body connection as a resource which, when accessed, has the potential to help people move into experiences of greater vitality, novelty, more satisfying relations with themselves and others, and loosen the grip of unwanted behavioral and emotional patterns. She brings to her work a scientific rigor combined with a practical, creative, here and now artistic sensibility. Meg believes strongly in the healing power of relationship, community and creativity to facilitate well-being and growth. Her work has been greatly influenced by mindfulnes, interpersonal neurobiology, evolutionary psychology, phenomenology and gestalt theories. In addition to counseling, Meg offers wellness consultations and private and group sessions in stress reduction.
