About Dr. Wolosh

I am a licensed clinical psychologist who has been practicing for over 25 years.  After passing my doctoral qualifying exams "with distinction, "  I received my Ph.D. in clincial psychology from Vanderbilt University, Nashville Tennessee in 1988.  I completed my internship at the Rusk Institute for Rehabilitation Medicine at NYU. I later sought out advanced training in marital and family therapy at the Family Institute of Westchester  between the years of 1991 to 1994.

 


Over the years,  I have 
worked in a number of settings in the community including a day treatment program in Staten Island for children  and at the counseling center at Morristown Memorial Hospital. For the last 15 years I have been in full time private practice. In addition to seeing clients, I have spoken at many parent, school and community groups about various topics relating to child development, parenting and eating disorders. 

During the last 10 years I have developed a specialization in child and adolescent eating disorders. Stemming from my long standing interest in the power of families to help faciitate change, I became interested in the Maudsley or Family Based Treatment as a treatment option for helping childrena and teens recover from eating disorders . In 2011 I completed the training program for Family Based Treatment from the Training Institue for Child and Adolescent Eating Disorders.  Since that time I am priviledged to  have successfully worked with many families to help their children recover. In the process

I have also developed professional relationships with many physicians and other health care professionals who treat eating disorders. Having earned the confidence of this group of specialists, I recieve many referrals  from pediatiricans and adolescent medicine speicalists in the New York and New Jersey areas. Collaborating with these other medical specialists helps ensure that I am providing top level care for my clients and families.
