Number of patients with eating disorders you treat annually: 1-5
EDUCATION, TRAINING, and EXPERTISE: I have a bachelors degree from Stanford University and a Master in Social Work from UC Berkeley. I have had extensive private supervision and classes from psychodynamic clinicians.
I do believe it is possible to recover from an eating disorder. I define recovery as an ability to eat meals without being preoccupied about losing or gaining weight, developing a healthy relationship with one’s body, an ability to understand and be aware of stressors that can contribute to self-destructive eating behaviors. An ability to utilize tools developed in treatment to prevent a relapse to previous self-destructive behaviors.
