ALIZAH K. LOWELL
Psychotherapist, Clinical Social Worker, Psychoanalyst
Whether you are looking to better understand yourself & your relationships or get assistance in navigating through a particular issue or period of change, therapy can be an invaluable tool. I welcome you to look around my website and contact me to begin the process.
I am a licensed clinical social worker in New York and New Jersey. I have been working with individuals, couples, families and groups for over a decade in different settings ranging from non-profit organizations to specialized hospital units. I have expertise and specialize in the treatment of eating disorders and body image disturbance. In my New York City and Northern New Jersey private therapy practice locations, I offer individual psychotherapy and psychoanalysis as well as couples therapy. I also provide supervision and consultation to clinicians in the field.
I received my Bachelor of Science in Liberal Arts with honors from Washington University in St. Louis and my Master of Science in Social Work from Columbia University. I completed my psychoanalytic training at the William Alanson White Institute of Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis and Psychology.

I see a diverse clientele seeking psychotherapy for a variety of reasons, including:
Couples Counseling and Family Therapy
Couples and families can benefit from therapy to develop a better understanding of their dynamics of relating to one another, make changes to problematic patterns, work on communication skills, or manage crises and transitions.
Groups can be a rich setting to learn about yourself and how you relate with others. They offer a unique opportunity to identify relational patterns and make changes in your life. Contact me to find out more about the groups I am currently facilitating.
In addition to my clinical work, I also provide individual and group supervision to clinicians working in various settings.
I am certified through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP) as an approved supervisor for those seeking certification as an eating disorder specialist (CEDS). I have extensive experience supervising trainees in different mental health disciplines as well as therapists in private practice. My goal is to help each therapist I work with build on their own strengths and skills, remove barriers impeding their work and develop their unique style as a clinician.
I provide consultation and workshops on eating disorders, body image, family assessment and family work, among other topics.
