Professional statement

Leslie Bloch is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker providing evidence-based care to clients across the lifespan from her office in Brooklyn Heights, NY. An eating disorder specialist, Leslie brings both the latest research and compassionate support to skillfully treat clients who are struggling with disordered eating habits and negative self-image. In addition to helping individuals and families find new balance in their connection to food, their bodies, and each other, Leslie works with a wide range of clients navigating the challenges of anxiety, depression, and life transitions.

Leslie’s approach is grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a skills-based modality that looks at how thoughts, behaviors, and feelings are interconnected in order to create actionable and long-lasting change. A student of mindfulness, Leslie also helps clients to build their own meditative practices and find moments of peace and reflection despite the daily stressors of life in the city.

Leslie is an advocate for science and self-compassion, helping clients build a kinder relationship to their body and inner self. She welcomes new client to her office, accessible by the 2/3/4/5 train from Borough Hall or the R train at Court St.
