About

Bio

I am Dr. Susie and I am a clinical psychologist currently holding a professional license in Florida. I had a private practice in Boca Raton, FL from 1991-2005 and in Cincinnati, Ohio since 2003. My current office location is in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. As a clinical investigator I conducted Field Trials in Routine Clinical Practice Settings.for the DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth edition.) My book, "It's Not About the Weight: Attacking Eating Disorders From the Inside Out" , was published in March, 2007. Recently I contributed to <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://www.amazon.com
