    Therapist - Eating disorder specialist -

    yoga teacher

    I am an individual and family therapy with over a decade of experience. Formerly the Clinical Director of a leading eating disorder treatment center in Manhattan, I'm most known for being an "eating disorder expert," but I also specialize in the treatment of depression, anxiety, body image, and trauma.


    While I am a published author, international speaker, and educator, I am first, and foremost, a therapist, dedicated to helping people navigate life's challenges.


    My therapeutic approach is to blend science with true connection. My clients often say that I am "structured yet unconditionally supportive". You will find that therapies conducted at Healing on Hudson actually work, and you will walk out of session with both practical tools and perspective. You will learn that change is possible and your goals are achievable. I've seen it happen so often. It's possible for you.

    I received my Doctorate of Social Welfare from New York University, my Masters of Science in Social Work from Columbia University and my postgraduate certificate from the Center for the Study of Anorexia and Bulimia. My professional affiliations include NASW National Association of Social Workers and IAEDP International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals

    Finally, (still with me?!) I am an experienced yoga teacher. Learning how to implement yoga and meditation into your daily life can be a great addition to the work you do here at Healing on Hudson.
