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.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Annee Ackerman, Ph.D.

Psychologist

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.

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.

Within driving distance of Upper East Side Manhattan

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.

Clinical Psychologist

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.

Psychotherapist /Psychoanalyst

Within driving distance of Upper East Side Manhattan

Having a good relationship with food is a struggle for many people today and can be seen as a topic of interest on many covers of magazines and newspapers these days. Since we all need food to live having a food addiction or disorder is particularly difficult as it is not a substance you can throw away and never pick up again. I help people gain a better understanding and relationship of how food is fuel and pleasure and how to strike a good balance between our needs and desires.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Gerald Schoenewolf, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychoanalyst

Within driving distance of Upper East Side Manhattan

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.

Howard Rossen, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Our relationship with food has always been a complicated affair. It is an absolute necessity for life and yet, when we over or under indulge, this very life enhancing experience can become a nightmare. In a society that places a premium on being thin (can there really be something called a size 0?) our relationship with food has become a major source of anxiety and frustration for too many people. Refiguring our relationship to food is a difficult process that requires a supportive and respectful therapeutic environment. Many of my patients have gotten a clearer perspective on their eating habits and have learned to embrace this issue, embracing a healthier sense of self.

Our early caregiver’s attunement and responsiveness to our hunger shapes our trust in the world to value us and nurture us. Although we may mature and develop on many dimensions of personal effectiveness we may for many reasons remain blind to and cling to reactive patterns of eating that reflect outmoded and ineffective strategies for regulating our self esteem, our emotions, managing stress, preserving valued attachments, etc. Within the context of a secure therapy alliance we can observe, reflect on, put words to emotional hunger and neutralize your fears of healthy strategies to feed this hunger. Eating will then be put in perspective and cease to monopolize your time and energies at the ....
