Sarah Meehan Licensed Psychotherapist New York City.jpg

I am an experienced psychotherapist who is dedicated to living an embodied life – a life in which I make contact with both my internal and the external reality by way of felt experience.

I am interested in developing a therapeutic relationship with my patients in which we collaboratively take up the project of developing and then deepening a wakeful consciousness of their truth, in other words their reality; the truth of what has happened to them in their life and how this reality has formed them into the person they are today.

I work with people on a deep level, where the impact has the opportunity to make profound and lasting positive change at a person’s core; profound and lasting changes in their overall experience of themselves and in their relationship to themselves, to others, and to their life.

I have always been drawn to embodiment practices and the immediacy of felt experience.


From a young age I pursued in a serious and dedicated way the art of dance. Later in my life I was drawn to Yoga.  As a psychotherapist I am now involved in the study and practice of somatic psychotherapies.

My dedication to truth, embodiment, felt experience and the power of relationship greatly inform and guide my work as psychotherapist.


I am dedicated to deepening and expanding the progressive and effective ways in which I serve my clients.

Professional Bio:

Sarah treats mental health conditions outside the box through body-oriented psychotherapy—an approach that combines traditional psychotherapy with therapeutic physical interventions.

Integrating these two modalities generates emotional release and facilitates psychological healing at the deepest levels.

As a licensed psychotherapist, she approaches the complexities of emotional wounds from an integrated perspective. She is most profoundly influenced by bioenergetics, psychodynamic, psychoanalytic and relational theories.

She is uniquely equipped to help her patients work through past traumas on a core level. She received her Masters in Clinical Social Work from Columbia University, a certification in the integrated treatment of Eating Disorders from the Center for the Study of Anorexia and Bulimia, and continues her somatic psychotherapy training in Bioenergetic Analysis at the New York Society for Bioenergetic Analysis.

She is also on faculty and a clinical supervisor at The Center for the Study Of Anorexia and Bulimia.
