ALIZAH K. LOWELL
Psychotherapist, Clinical Social Worker, Psychoanalyst
We all have ways of coping with life's stressors & our emotions–some are useful, while others need to be updated & improved upon.
Whether you are looking to better understand yourself and your relationships, get assistance in navigating through a particular issue or period of change, or get help in managing depression or anxiety, therapy can be and invaluable tool.
I am a licensed clinical social worker in New York and New Jersey. I have been working with individuals, couples and families for over a decade in different settings ranging from non-profit organizations to specialized hospital units. My experience includes individual psychotherapy, family therapy, couples counseling and group work. I have expertise and specialize in the treatment of eating disorders. In my New York City and Northern New Jersey private therapy practices, I offer short-term goal directed psychotherapy as well as longer-term psychotherapy. 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 have completed the Certificate Program in Psychoanalysis at the William Alanson White Institute of Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis and Psychology.

I see a diverse clientele seeking short-term or longer-term 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 and patterns of relating to one another, 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 provide consultation and workshops on family assessment and family work, eating disorders, body image, among other topics.
