Eating & Weight

Overeating, emotional eating, mindless eating, and binge eating are common experiences that often cause frustration and guilt. Dr. Gupta specializes in helping adults make lasting changes to daily eating habits by focusing on concrete behavioral techniques, identifying related emotional patterns, reducing self-criticism, and serving as a coach and therapist simultaneously

She has been teaching a comprehensive course on Eating Disorders at Barnard College, Columbia University since 2012. Prior to that, she trained in the Eating Disorder Program at Weill Cornell / New York Presbyterian hospital.

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.
