Therapists Specializing in Body Image in New Jersey

Body image refers to how you think and feel about your body’s appearance, as well as how you think other people will perceive your body. Body image generally falls somewhere along a continuum, as you can feel different degrees of positivity or negativity towards your body that may change over time.

In reality, bodies come in all shapes and sizes and there is no one ‘normal’ body type. Unfortunately, however, we are exposed regularly to images of a ‘desired’ body type, which can lead to body dissatisfaction. For some, this can cause distress and may lead to various mental health challenges, such as anxiety, depression, body dysmorphia, or eating disorders. Many therapeutic approaches can help develop a more positive body image, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness practices, or acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).

To find the best approach for your needs, it can be helpful to discuss your options with one of the therapists in New Jersey below who specializes in body image. Therapists have been vetted by the Zencare team for clinically rigorous, quality care. Visit their profiles to watch an introductory video and book a free initial call to find a good fit!

I believe that we all behave the way we do and believe the things we do for reasons that were useful at one point in our life. Those ways of being, and ways of relating to others, often stop being helpful, however, and that's when I think therapy is useful - to understand the context of our actions and attitudes, so we can take control over them.

I also believe that every person exists in context, and understanding yourself can have positive impacts on all of your relationships - at work, at home, everywhere.

If you're considering therapy, chances are there are some things you'd like to change in your patterns of behavior or relationships. Understanding those things as part of a broader context will help you take charge and make changes, to feel in control of your choices, and to live the life you want.

A safe space where you don’t feel judged or oppressed and where you can be your true self can be hard to find. I hope to provide you with that ease, comfort, and safety you’ve been seeking, even if just once a week in the virtual therapy room.

As part of our time together, I’ll bring yoga and meditation into your therapy experience. We’ll begin each session with a personalized yoga practice, transition to talk therapy, and close with a guided meditation. I aspire for you to feel grounded, deactivated, and safe in your body by your own creation.

As a compassion-focused therapist, my primary goal is to help you develop a compassionate self while obtaining and practicing concrete skills that serve you from your day to day. When you’ve been oppressed by society, these things may feel nearly impossible, but this is where I come in - to support and guide you in this journey to freedom, joy, rest, and peace.

I believe that the therapist’s ability to listen to the patients, and to see their underlying issues is one of the most important aspects that contribute to the patients insight and growth in the therapeutic process.

I believe that patient’s symptoms can’t be seen and treated in isolation, and is always important to understand how and when the symptoms have emerged and developed in a persons’s life.

In my practice I offer a welcoming setting and provide a safe space for your problems or difficulties.

Psychotherapy is a clearing in a world that often overwhelms us and brings us pain and anguish, as well as joy and happy memories. Your psychotherapist's office is a safe place where you can stop, take your time, look, listen to yourself. A place to go when you feel stuck.

All of us humans have a problem to solve. It could be specific–a relationship, a job, a tormenting thought that won’t go away, trouble with food or drink, a death, a marriage. Or it could be more enigmatic – a vague feeling something is wrong, a heaviness of spirit, a blank in the mind. Or perhaps it is as simple, and as complex and universal, as the need to make sense of life.

But even when are clear about our problems, solutions are often illusive and harder to hold. Solutions cannot be ‘one-size-fits-all.’ Traversing life impasses requires, compassionate attention, steadfast effort, and care. Psychotherapy would give you a chance to delve into your complexity and depth and sufferings in the presence of another person—a professional in your corner, a witness whose presence makes your struggle bearable.

Psychotherapy is often open-ended: it may be short, long, or in-between. It is a process, a set of procedures, in which two people work hard together to understand the inner life of one of them. Think of psychotherapy as a particular kind of know-how–a knowing how to know yourself – that you can make your own and, when you are ready to go it alone, take along with you into the world.
