Therapy for Healthy Habits and a Peaceful Mind
Dr. Debra Gill, NJ Psychologist
I provide individual therapy for adults, adolescents and pre-adolescents.
I also work with couples.
I tailor my treatment to your personal needs and preferences so that it will be both comfortable and effective. I use a combination of active approaches from my experience, certifications and training in:
My style is highly interactive and focused on making sure you gain something of value from every individual or group session we share. I will listen compassionately and ask questions to better understand your patterns, beliefs, and reactions. We will always approach your experiences with non-judgmental acceptance while developing a plan of action and goals that will move you forward.
Working with me, you'll learn how to observe your experiences with a sense of curiosity, acceptance and self-compassion. You'll soon be able to describe your thoughts, emotions, body sensations, and behavioral urges without criticizing yourself or using problematic behaviors to escape and avoid. In the realm of eating, you'll learn to fully enjoy pleasurable sensations in your mouth and to detect signals of hunger and fullness. Such mindful eating will make it easier to maintain a healthy weight and a positive relationship with food and your body.
I am a specialist in Eating Disorders, Healthy Weight Loss, and Obesity. I am continually improving my knowledge and skills through my involvement in the National Eating Disorders Association, the Binge Eating Disorder Association, and The Obesity Society. I treat:

Hi Debra! I am so happy to be graduating from therapy with my goals met! Can you believe I have not binged in a year?! I am slowly getting back to my healthiest weight and I’m enjoying my hiking and exercise classes! The work we did on my self-compassion was so important too. I can truly say I no longer waste time beating myself up or worrying about things that don’t go perfectly… Thanks again for everything.

The binge eating and purging was taking over my daughter’s life. Her struggle was affecting our relationship. I’m happy to report that she has her life back and I have my daughter back.
