Susan Reib, LMSW
Susan Reib is a New York based therapist specializing in the treatment of eating disorders and co-occurring mental health concerns. She has extensive experience providing individual, family, and group therapy in PHP, IOP and outpatient levels of care. She earned her Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College. She received a certificate in the integrated treatment of eating disorders from the Center for the Study of Anorexia and Bulimia, a division of the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy.
Susan’s approach is collaborative and supportive with an emphasis on emotional healing and personal growth. She knows firsthand that struggling with an eating disorder can consume a person’s life. She understands that eating disorders are about complex issues — “everything else in life” other than the food — and that they are a way of coping with what we are unable to express through words. Utilizing psychodynamic interventions and behavioral techniques such as CBT, DBT and mindfulness, Susan helps her clients to access and express their emotions, find relief from symptoms, cultivate self-compassion as part of the healing process, and become motivated to engage in life more fully.
