Meet Lauren

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in working with me. I am a calm, thoughtful, and containing therapist and yoga teacher who is passionate about my work. I specialize in the treatment of eating and body image problems, working with a mindfulness-based, anti-diet orientation. I have extensive experience working with eating disorders, body image issues, anxiety, depression, and trauma. 

In my private practice, I offer individual psychotherapy as well as yoga therapy for eating disorder recovery, trauma recovery, anxiety, depression, and stress management. I also offer periodic group therapy in collaboration with the Women's Therapy Centre Institute, using their pioneering Self-Attuned Eating Model.  Groups begin frequently throughout the year with various highly experienced therapists, so please visit their website for more information. 

In 2015, I created InBodied Yoga, a pro-recovery, body positive yoga practice committed to teaching students to approach self-care and movement with self-compassion.  I offer occasional classes at The Yoga Collective NYC and periodically offer an integrative workshop called "Yoga for Better Body Image" at yoga studios in New York City.

Finding the right treatment is primarily about fit. I encourage you to contact me to explore whether I can be of service, and to discuss your potential treatment plan. I often work with other clinicians and welcome a collaborative, team-based approach to treatment.
