Judy Scheel, PhD, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Boone
I am NC & NY Licensed, specializing in eating issues and the problems that accompany them: depression, self-harm, anxiety, substance use, sexual & physical trauma. With years of training and personal analysis I am solidly qualified to treat general issues, including anxiety & depression, relationship and family issues. In my eating disorder work, I coordinate with professionals who treat medical & nutritional issues. The goal of ALL treatment is to maintain a safe environment to explore psychological & interpersonal issues underlying conditions. In addition, symptoms, whether from an eating disorder or addictive issue, are addressed from a cognitive-behavioral approach toward symptom elimination and developing a healthy self-image.
Reducing my NY practice of years, I am privileged providing care to individuals & families in Boone. I maintain a general psychotherapy practice and treat eating disorders. Issues surrounding eating & body image are complex. Self-harm behaviors have underlying causes that go beyond preoccupation with food & body. Treatment requires addressing symptoms and understanding psychological & relational underpinnings.
A nationally recognized specialist in eating disorders with many years of clinical training in treating patients with psychological issues, my approach emphasizes the unique circumstances each person brings to treatment. Despite overlaps in symptoms among patients, there is no uniform treatment. Treatment requires a seasoned and trained professional versed in various approaches and understanding causation.
