Clinical Psychologist

223 Bloomfield Street, suite 107, Hoboken, New Jersey 07030

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.

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.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

352 7th Avenue, Suite 1201, New York, New York 10001

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.

Licensed Psychologist

19 West 34th St., Penthouse, New York, New York 10001

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 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.

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.

Holistic Psychologist, Author, Focalizer

Eating disorders are initially attempts at self-medication for a troubled soul. Initially, the activity relieves the pain when there didn’t seem to be another option or resource. This pain relief becomes a disorder when a person develops an inner compulsion (unnoticed at first), which begins to negatively impact other areas of life. By this point, an insidious denial creeps in to protect the behavior and the chaos, both inner and outer, now runs your life. For the ED resolution, clearly one shoe does not fit all. In addition to illuminating the healing landscape for you, our focus in working together is to relieve present suffering and pave the way for the most graceful movement possible.

Gerald Schoenewolf, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychoanalyst

207 East 15th Street, New York, New York 10003

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.

Jessica Allen, LCSW, ACT

Cognitive Behavioral Therapist

125 E 23rd Street, New York, New York 10010

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.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

260 Madison Ave. Ste. 8047, New York, New York 10016

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.

Annie Block Pearl, M.S.

Psychotherapist

185 Madison Avenue, 15th Floor Office #1, New York, New York 10016

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.

Joan Warren, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

280 Madison Avenue Suite 208, New York City, New York 10016

Treating eating disorders requires that we examine other contributing painful factors besides food itself. Problems with self image, maintaining control, especially in transitional life stages, family relations and past trauma may trigger difficulty in regulating eating habits. I have specific professional training and personal experience in dealing with the role eating plays in our daily existence. I offer understanding and support for your struggle to maintain healthy habits while feeling pressured.

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.
