Hi, I'm Stephanie!

Child & Eating Disorder Therapist in Westchester, NY​

EMDR Trained Therapist

Do you or your child/teen:

  • Struggle with a poor body image or low self esteem?

  • Constantly avoid eating or engage in binging or purging?

  • Believe that no one understands how you feel?

  • Need strategies to help with anxiety and challenging behaviors?

 

I help clients (children, teens, and adults) find relief from anxiety, learn positive coping skills, develop a healthy relationship with food, and overcome negative core beliefs.

I use humor and honesty to help you or your child feel heard, validated and safe to explore barriers that are keeping you stuck. Our work together will help you overcome these barriers so you can live a more true-to-self life. 

In our collaborative work together, you can expect to:

  • Work through challenges related to earlier life experiences

  • Develop insight and coping tools to help decrease anxiety

  • Learn strategies to improve behavior

  • Develop a healthy body image and relationship with food

  • Overcome traumatic memories and embrace a new beginning

My approach includes a combination of

 

Life can be difficult at times and no one needs to go through challenges alone. I believe in a “person first; therapist and client second” work approach to allow therapy to be a comfortable and open process.
