Zoë Bisbing, LCSW
My approach to therapy values the authentic relationship between therapist and client as an essential ingredient to a safe and healing environment. I bring equal parts compassion, current knowledge of relevant research and theory, and curiosity to the work. I am collaborative, goal-oriented, and always willing to meet you where you are. At all times I want our work to feel meaningful to you.
In my general practice, I work with individuals, couples, and families struggling with stress and anxiety; relationship problems; life and career transitions; and infertility, pregnancy, and postpartum issues. I also have a specialization in the treatment of eating disorders, with a sub-specialty in child and adolescent eating disorders. I am passionate about eating disorder prevention and early intervention.
I have worked with adults, adolescents, and children across a wide range of treatment settings, including the inpatient unit of New York Presbyterian Hospital-Payne Whitney Westchester, where I provided individual, group, and family therapy.
I hold a Master of Social Work from New York University, a Bachelor of Arts from Smith College, and a certification in Family-Based Treatment from the Institute for Child and Adolescent Eating Disorders. I have also completed additional training in CBT-E through the Centre for Research on Eating Disorders at Oxford.
Prior to my career as a therapist, I worked professionally in the performing arts, both on and off stage. I deeply appreciate when my current vocation allows me to bridge my past and present; working with individuals facing the challenges any life or career transition may bring is both challenging and greatly rewarding.
A native New Yorker, I live in Manhattan with my husband and two young sons.
