About

Amy Pershing is the Clinical Director at the Center for Eating Disorders and Founding Director of "Bodywise(tm)," a comprehensive treatment program for binge eating disorder (BED). Pershing lectures internationally on the treatment of BED and her own recovery journey and has been featured on numerous radio and television programs speaking about BED treatment and recovery. Pershing has also served on a variety of professional boards and is the Past Chair of the Binge Eating Disorder Association.

Bodywise is specifically for recovery from binge eating disorder. The program helps people develop new patterns with food, and better ways to cope with the underlying issues that drive binge eating. Binge eaters rarely recover alone; Bodywise provides interventions needed to begin to put food back into perspective. Please visit: www.thebodywiseprogram.com
