Eating & Weight
Many people overeat or don’t eat enough, especially when they are stressed or dealing with difficult emotions. Dr. Gupta specializes in helping adults who binge eat, purge, and/or engage in emotional eating.
She has been teaching a comprehensive course on Eating Disorders at Barnard College, Columbia University since 2012.
How can therapy help with eating and weight problems?
Numerous research studies have shown that cognitive behavior therapy is the treatment of choice for binge eating and bulimia. The therapy involves a problem-solving approach to identity and reduce patterns that lead to overeating or purging. It’s structured and collaborative, meaning you’ll work together with Dr. Gupta to identify realistic goals and strategies to get there.
Our first priority is to help improve the eating patterns that led you to seek therapy. As you feel more confident about your improvements, we can focus on other factors that may have been related to difficulties with eating.
