  • Philosophy or Treatment Model
  • Ms. Klinger draws on a variety of modalities, including family systems, psychodynamic, feminist, cognitive, DBT and solution-oriented approaches. She believes in the fundamental worth and dignity of all individuals, and endeavor to help my clients connect to their awareness of their own worth and dignity. Ms. Klinger sees disordered eating as an enactment of conflicts about needing and deserving, of managing and tending to emotional pain. She views recovery as a process of healing and coming home to oneself.
  • Personal Side
  • I view therapy as a collaborative effort between therapist and client. I endeavor to make therapy a safe place for clients to speak openly, to be vulnerable, to share the things that are hard to let others see or know. I help my clients distinguish between the voice of the eating disorder and that of their true, core selves. I offer two therapy groups for women with eating and body image concerns: an anorexia/bulimia group for women dealing with restricting/bingeing/purging/compulsive exercise, and an overeaters group for women who eat compulsively/binge eat. There is magic in relating to others who share our struggles. Isolation and shame melt away, and group members have fellow travelers on the journey of recovery.
