I recently had the opportunity to e-meet Stacey Rosenfeld, PhD, who is the author of “Does Every Woman Have an Eating Disorder: Challenging Our Nation’s Fixation with Food and Weight.” She is a clinical psychologist who specializes in eating disorders and body image issues. Dr. Rosenfeld was formerly a staff psychologist at Columbia University Medical Center in New York City and at the UCLA Counseling Center in Los Angeles. She was excited to interview me to learn more regarding a patient’s perspective on recovery. In addition, she published the interview on her blog, Every Woman has an Eating Disorder, which has just been named a top eating disorder blog of 2015 by Healthline. Please stay tuned for her answers to my questions… from a PhD’s perspective!
