The Treatment Team Approach
Collaboration with a patient's treatment team is the gold standard in eating disorder treatment. With the patient's written permission, I collaborate closely with other providers (Pediatricians, General Practitioners, Psychiatrists, Registered Dietitians, etc.) to ensure the individual's safety and progress.
Supervision and Consultation Services
I provide clinical supervision to therapists who are pursuing their CEDS credential, as well as to licensed clinicians who wish to better understand the specifics of providing quality treatment to people with eating disorders.
In addition, I provide shorter-term consultation to professionals who have specific questions about available resources, differential diagnosis, and other issues related to providing care to their current patients.
Pre-licensed professionals and students may also seek supervision with me to explore general topics related to providing therapy such as practice and theory, issues related to countertransference and use of self, professional development, and applying treatment modalities. I am SIFI certified and have experience providing supervision to graduate and undergraduate students from NYU, Columbia, Dominican, Rutgers, Ramapo College, and Fordham.
For Outreach Professionals
I pride myself on developing close professional relationships with hospitals and treatment centers nationwide. I welcome the opportunity to meet you and learn about your programs so that I may provide up to date information to families and individuals who are seeking a higher level of care for eating disorder, substance abuse, and mental health treatment.
When I provide a referral or recommendation for a specific treatment center or therapeutic program, it is imperative that I understand the program's approach, philosophy and policies, as well as logistics such as the populations and insurances accepted, so that I can make the best possible recommendation. I welcome the opportunity to visit your program so that I may see it firsthand.
