Welcome to Metro Behavioral Health Associates
For the Treatment of Eating Disorders, Depression, Anxiety & More
It is our privilege to serve patients and families throughout Westchester County, NYC and the surrounding tri-state area to treat, educate and offer support every step of the way on one’s courageous journey to improved mental and physical health.
Over the course of treatment, in part by learning how to become more sensitive and compassionate with oneself and with loved ones, it is quite possible to learn new ways of coping that do not require hurting one’s body or managing the medical risks associated with all forms of eating disorders. It is no longer necessary to endure the mental fatigue and confusion of the constant self-criticism to which you have become so accustomed and which has become so emotionally costly to you and those who are important to you.
As is often the case in the treatment of all forms of eating disorders, a TEAM APPROACH is always the best chance at recovery. At Metro Behavioral Health Associates, this can be easily facilitated in collaboration with carefully chosen nutritionists, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, physicians, etc, whether on our own team or in collaboration with existing health professionals who may already be in place. When needed, our experts can also provide much needed assistance in finding and choosing the best facility for residential or inpatient care if it is deemed necessary.
Drawing on a variety of approaches, our comprehensive approach may include cognitive behavioral therapy, process and support groups, family and/or individual psychotherapy sessions, music or art therapy, meal support therapy, nutrition education for patients and families with highly individualized, manageable meal planning, EMDR to reduce the effects of trauma, Hypnotherapy in certain cases as an adjunct to other therapies, the use of the Maudsley Approach for children and adolescents with specific forms of disordered eating, medical monitoring and much more.
The entire process starts with an COMPREHENSIVE PSYCHOSOCIAL EVALUATION, approximately 90 minutes in length. Then, depending on what we recommend and what you choose to do, we will collaborate together to form an individually designed treatment plan.
Together, we can help you face the ultimate irony: having developed an eating disorder as some means to control certain aspects of your life, when in fact now those very habits and behaviors are now controlling your every thought and action.
