Arlene B. Englander
Arlene B. Englander, LCSW, MBA, has been a licensed psychotherapist for over twenty five years. She trained at Columbia University and is currently in private practice in North Palm Beach, Florida where she specializes in treating persons coping with eating disorders, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, grief and stress (personal and work-related). Love Your Food® is her non–dieting, psychologically-oriented program for compulsive overeaters in which clients learn to eat whatever they like, but stop just at the point of satisfaction without overeating.
Ms. Englander developed many of her theories about stress management while working at Cancer Care, Inc. where she counseled thousands of patients and families dealing with advanced cancer. She subsequently developed stress management programs for use in hospitals, law firms, and other settings. As Director of Community Education at the Holliswood Hospital, a private psychiatric hospital in New York City, which was renowned for its eating disorders program, her responsibilities included the production of educational seminars, often attended by audiences of as many as 500 professionals, including psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, psychiatric nurses and guidance counselors.
Aside from her professional training and experience, Ms. Englander is also personally familiar with the issue of eating disorders, as she is a former compulsive overeater.

My Treatment Philosophy:
I believe that psychotherapy is a collaborative process in which I work with clients to help them better understand themselves and others as they work to achieve their goals. By becoming more aware of our thoughts, feelings and actions, we can all become more compassionate towards ourselves, as well as gain greater control of ourselves and our lives. I love helping clients feel better about themselves and their world. Best of all is seeing a client “graduate out”, happier, more confident, and able to carry what we’ve learned together forward.
REACHING OUT FOR HELP IS A SIGN OF STRENGTH..
