MEG ROWLEY, LMSW

Meg Rowley, LMSW, received her graduate degree from Columbia University School of Social Work, where she was intensively trained in the Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) training program and lab under Andre Ivanoff, Ph.D. She is part of the adherent treatment team at BHBA and co-facilitates Multi-family and Adolescent DBT skills classes. Meg is passionate and dedicated to the DBT modality which she believes combines the ideal balance between mindfulness and behavioral therapy, achieving optimal results. 

Meg has received training and supervision in Exposure and Response Prevention (Ex/RP) therapy which is highly effective at treating OCD, anxiety, suicidal behaviors, depression, and other problems involving severe emotional dysregulation. Additionally, she is trained and supervised in Dialectical Behavior Therapy Prolonged Exposure Protocol (DBT-PE), an evidence based treatment shown to reduce symptoms of trauma. Most recently, Meg received training in Radically Open DBT (RO-DBT) developed by Tom Lynch, a therapy created to help individuals with disorders of over-control. Meg is excited and passionate about having the opportunity to implement these trainings into her work with clients so that they may heal and fully engage in a life worth living. 

She received her Bachelor’s degree at Siena College in 2011 with a major in English, a double minor in creative arts and philosophy, and a theater certificate. She lived in Park City, Utah for the last six years. Meg worked at Peace House, a domestic violence shelter as the primary case manager. She was trained in motivational interviewing, which she utilized to help clients determine their goals and objectives after exiting the shelter. In her first year at Columbia she interned at the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office Witness Aid Services Unit where she worked as a Victim Services Advocate, providing counseling and navigation of the legal system. 

Additionally, she has co-facilitated Creating Connections, a peer support group focused on healthy relationships and identifying red flags in domestic violent relationships. She also helped facilitate Seeking Safety, an evidence based treatment treating substance abuse and PTSD, which she brought to inmates at Summit County Jail in Utah. 

When not working at BHBA, you can find Meg outside. She is an avid downhill skier and marathon runner. She enjoys hiking and camping and feels most comfortable sleeping under the stars with her dog Winston.
