Eating Disorders & Body Image

We live in an image-obsessed diet culture that’s in conflict with the ideal of body acceptance.

Our personal history and current circumstances, including pressure from family, friends and social media may contribute to stress, unease and anxiety when it comes to our bodies and eating behaviors.

Body image problems may potentially impact our self-esteem, social confidence and relationship intimacy. Food anxiety and disordered eating not only interfere with our physical health, but detract from our ability to enjoy our lives to the fullest.

If you are struggling with negative body image or disordered eating, you are not alone.

We understand how challenging it can be to foster a positive connection to your body and a mindful relationship to food.

We provide a warm and supportive environment in which you’ll feel safe to express yourself freely. We’re here to listen to your personal goals for treatment, and to help you achieve them.

Together, we’ll utilize the most up-to-date, scientifically proven strategies to bring about a more lovingly supportive relationship with your body and yourself.

Speciality areas include:

  • Body image concerns
  • Binge Eating Disorder (BED) & compulsive overeating
  • Emotional eating
  • Excessive exercising
  • Food restriction

In addition, we offer weekly treatment sessions for adolescents stepping down from intensive outpatient programs.

Whether or not you have been diagnosed with an eating disorder in the past, if you are ready to improve your relationship with food, your body image or yourself, we can help. Contact us (212) 362-4490 or email to schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation with a therapist.
