Licensed Clinical Psychologist

One priority is your motivation to change in terms of pathological eating behaviors. I will work with you to increase and maintain that motivation. The hoped for outcome is a restoration to a healthy body weight, stabilizing accompanying symptoms and medical conditions of the eating disorder, reducing or eliminating negative behaviors including bingeing, purging, and compulsive exercise, building self-esteem and improving body image, learning new coping skills for dealing with stressful situations, learning nutrition and healthy, flexible eating habits, addressing underlying psychological problems, such as core low self-esteem, mood intolerance and interpersonal difficulties.

I offer a solution-focused approach that is tailored to each client’s specific needs, and is based on empirical research. I have an unusually high success rate – helping clients to achieve permanent recovery from eating disorders – from my years of experience and training in a variety of therapeutic methods. Each session is designed to address the specific concerns of the client, and is informed by my training in psychodynamic therapy, hypnosis, child and adolescent therapy, family therapy, psychology of women, feminist therapy, and men’s issues.

Jean Eljay, MS, PhD, CNLP, CH, AdvHC

Certified Advanced Hypnotist and NeuraLinguistic Programmer

Eating disorders are a broad spectrum of “too much” behaviors. They can stem from always seeing that image of that potato chip and not being able to say “no”. Or they may be much more serious. Indeed in my 20 year experience, eating problems are not usually related to food, but are related to unresolved or suppressed emotions. Using advanced techniques, we aim for a personal and confidential release of those emotional weights, freeing you to make healthier and ultimately beneficial choices.

If you are thinking about addressing an eating disorder, please consider contacting me. Eating disorders are different, but many have serious medical risks. I am not an alarmist and will work with you collaboratively to ensure you and I share goals for therapy. Since I worked for years in a research center's weight loss program for years, I receive many eating disorder referrals. Of course, losing weight is not what every case calls for, but regardless, many of the principles and knowledge required to lose weight, can also help people learn to accept gaining a little weight and even accepting themselves and how they look. I approach eating issues in a comprehensive or holistic manner.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Michael Barmak, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Woodbridge

I help clients with mild eating disorders that are not causing any medical complications. This might look like binge eating when you are anxious in order to stuff down feelings of heartbreak, loneliness or helplessness. I can help you learn how to manage these deep painful feelings rather than trying to avoid them by overeating. Once you learn that you can feel these difficult feelings than you no longer have to avoid them with food.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Gerald Schoenewolf, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychoanalyst

Within driving distance of Woodbridge

Over the years I have had a number of clients who suffer from anorexia or bulimia. Generally these are young women who are convinced that their misguided eating habits and distorted view of their body are necessary and "normal." Using a gentle but honest approach, I try to help them see the many ways they are hampering their health and their relationships through maintaining their disorder. In time, if they stick with my program, they work through the internal conflicts that underlie the eating disorder and begin to thrive in their personal and professional lives.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Jessica Allen, LCSW, ACT

Cognitive Behavioral Therapist

Within driving distance of Woodbridge

An eating disorder can be experienced as extreme emotions, attitudes, and behaviors surrounding weight and food. Eating disorders are serious emotional and physical problems that can have life-threatening consequences. CBT can be a useful way of learning how to cope with the urges and compensatory behaviors and understanding the negative thinking patterns that leads to feeling shame and guilt around weight. Together, we will work on changing your thinking and behaviors around eating to help alleviate the negative feelings.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Carolyn AlRoy, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Woodbridge

If you have struggled unsuccessfully with weight loss, I will help you by looking at all the things that have gotten in your way of healthy weight loss. We will look at family, friends, and romantic relationships in your life, and what you learned about food and your body. We will uncover fears you may have that have to do with relationships and dating. If you are anorexic or bulimic I can work with you if you are not struggling with a life threatening situation. Recovered anorexics or bulimics who have more work to do in therapy to clarify the issues entrenched in their behavior, and emotional triggers for unhealthy behavior.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Annie Block Pearl, M.S.

Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Woodbridge

Eating disorders reflect a disordered approach to our own nourishment. In my practice I have found that this disorder develops as an early coping strategy to help deal with a disorder in the family system. In our work together we will untangle the contributing factors and develop a more supportive vision and approach to getting what you need in your life. Concurrently, we will work holistically to insure that you get the nutrition of body, mind and spirit that is your birthright.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Annee Ackerman, Ph.D.

Psychologist

Within driving distance of Woodbridge

Eating disorders go beyond a desire to be thin that gets out of hand. Underlying the struggle with weight and the distorted, overly negative view of one’s appearance is, very often, a desperate need to feel in control. And this need comes from having had experiences of feeling frighteningly out of control of your body, your life, your decisions. Therapy can help you to identify and resolve the deeper issue underlying restricting and binge-purging behaviors. This process of self-understanding is, itself, empowering and will give you a new sense of agency and control over your life as you develop healthier eating behaviors.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Konstantin Lukin, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Woodbridge

Eating disorders are about more than just the food one eats. At the Lukin Center, our therapists work with clients to target the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors associated with eating. Clients often have thoughts about their body and the way they look, feel the need to control their caloric intake in order to be perfect, or create a number of rituals surrounding food. Our therapists use cognitive behavioral therapy, one of the best treatments for eating disorders, in order to treat the person and not just the disease.

Eating Disorder Counselor

H.C. Fall Willeboordse, LCSW-R

Fall Willeboordse, LCSW-R

Within driving distance of Woodbridge

Eating disorders are often an attempt at control in a life where something else is not working, out of control, and in desperate need of repair. I work with individuals who are struggling with forms of binge eating, bulimia, anorexia, restrictive eating, and exercise bulimia. These behaviors may have emerged from or overlap with depression, anxiety, grief and mourning. I work both in the here-and-now and explore any history that may have aided in the development of the destructive behavior. I encourage family sessions when appropriate to aid in recovery.
