On the faculty at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and known for her pioneering work in the psychodynamic causes of disordered eating and body image issues, Fran Weiss is Senior Psychotherapy Consultant to the New York Obesity Nutrition Research Center at New York-Presbyterian Hospital in affiliation with Columbia University, College of Physicians & Surgeons, and Weill Cornell Medical College in Manhattan. Regarded as one of the top specialists in eating disorders, weight regulation and body image in the country, she is the creator of B.I.T.E. The Body Image Transformation Experience® Workshop.

She is also the Resource Specialist for the Center for Sleep Medicine at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center with a focus on anxiety, trauma, stress reduction strategies, mindfulness skills, sensorimotor therapy, and eating disorders.

Fran is on the Board of Directors of the International Board for Certification of Group Psychotherapists, American Group Psychotherapy Association (AGPA), and chairs its Standards Committee.

She trains, teaches and runs workshops nationally.

A New York State Licensed Psychotherapist, Certified Group Psychotherapist, and Board Certified Diplomat, Fran Weiss has also been acting as an effective "change agent" for her private client population for decades. She specializes in working with those struggling with ♦ eating dysregulation problems, ♦ diabetes, ♦ relationship and attachment issues, ♦ concern about professional career and future direction, ♦ balancing fast track with family, ♦ executive stress, ♦ false starts in finding a life partner, ♦ women's issues, ♦ anxiety issues and trauma, and ♦ life transitional changes and losses.

Meet Fran Weiss:

Fran’s client population is composed of high-functioning men and women who have attained professional direction and financial stability and those with great potential still struggling to achieve professional and financial goals. She works particularly well with those who are starting their careers and are encountering road blocks.

Looking at what is not working for you may take courage.  To that end Fran partners with you to learn to listen to and decode the meaning of your internal road blocks and to develop the skills necessary to refocus your energies in a new direction that makes sense to you and that you can be proud of.

Getting started or how it works:

Step One: We schedule two consultation sessions to review the problem and discuss treatment planning tailored to your individual needs, situation, and circumstances.

Step Two — Treatment Options:

Step Three — Optional: I may recommend collaboration with a member of the Treatment Team, or add your existing specialist to the treatment program.  Note: All members of the Treatment Team (internist, endocrinologist, sleep disorder specialist, nutritionist, diabetes specialist, psychopharmacologist, neuropsychological testing) are board certified and licensed within their specific specialty.
