Susan Reib, LMSW

Psychotherapist & Group Therapist

Susan 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, where she is a staff therapist. Previously, she worked at Monte Nido Manhattan’s Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient program as a group therapist.

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.
