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

Ariella Soffer, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical PhD Psychologist

Within driving distance of Staten Island

I work with people struggling with shame around their body, and those who are grappling with weight loss. These issues often involve an exploration of the complex feelings that one has about his or her body and the ways in which she/he wants it to change. I work with many postpartum and pregnant women around body and weight related struggles. When health concerns come into play, I often work collaboratively with other professionals to help people achieve physical health as they work on the psychological aspects of the work within therapy. Taking the first step towards therapy is often the hardest, and I invite you to schedule a consultation.

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

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within driving distance of Staten Island

While most eating disorder issues are treated by cognitive behavioral methodologies or specialized outpatient/inpatient programs, Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, PhD provide relief first and foremost for the brain of one suffering from an eating disorder----without giving them medication. We believe that the neural circuitries responsible for the compulsive behaviors with eating are not necessarily only a neurotransmitter issue but of overused neural networks that affect the harmonization, balance, and decisions of the whole brain. Contact kevin@kevinfleminphd.com or 877-606-6161 to learn more about this safe and effective alternative.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Konstantin Lukin, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Staten Island

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.

H.C. Fall Willeboordse, LCSW-R

Fall Willeboordse, LCSW-R

Within driving distance of Staten Island

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.

You will learn what food habits you have adopted over time and will explore the root for these habits. You will learn how your thoughts and emotions influence the eating behavior and will develop skills to help you heal. I do not work with severe cases of anorexia and bulimia or eating disorders stemming from abuse or trauma. I do work with disordered eating stemming from emotional stress.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Annee Ackerman, Ph.D.

Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Staten Island

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

John M. Montgomery, Ph.D.

John M. Montgomery

Within driving distance of Staten Island

Eating disorders, in the framework I use, are manifestations of deeper emotional issues that need to be resolved. I view eating disorders as true addictions that are deeply intertwined with true emotional addictions. In focusing on underlying emotional addictions, which can have extremely destructive repercussions in many domains, including eating patterns, I've been able to offer a great deal of help to people with eating disorders.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Patricia Schneider, Dr., Ph. D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Staten Island

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.
