Medical Expertise

Anorexia, Binge Eating, Depression, Bulimia, Excessive Exercise, Eating Disorders, Affective & Anxiety Disorders

Dr. Diane Klein received her undergraduate degree in Psychology from Harvard University, summa cum laude, and her medical degree from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where she also completed residency training in Psychiatry. Following a clinical research fellowship at Columbia University's Eating Disorders Research Center, Dr. Klein remained a faculty member until 2012. Over the course of her career she has received many prestigious grants and awards and given numerous invited talks. Dr. Klein's studies have focused largely on behavioral aspects of eating disorders, including problematic physical activity in people with anorexia nervosa. Her clinical work in the past 12 years spans the range of symptoms that people with eating, weight and shape concerns experience.

The Eating Disorders Program, led by Dr. Klein, offers specialized outpatient consultations and treatment to individuals with eating concerns including anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, "picky eating," and excessive exercise. Evaluations are comprehensive and include assessments of medical, nutritional, and psychological status. Dr. Klein works closely with other treating clinicians to develop a highly individualized plan of care for each patient. Patients may receive ongoing care at this site including medication management and psychotherapy, which may involve Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as well as more dynamically-oriented methods. Dr. Klein's approach takes into consideration the tremendous difficulty that individuals with eating concerns may experience trying to reduce symptom use, and the ambivalence often experienced toward recovery.

Dr. Klein also has extensive experience treating people without eating disorders who suffer from anxiety and mood symptoms, attention deficit symptoms, reproductive health issues, and relationship difficulties. Patients, family members and providers are welcome to call to inquire about setting up an appointment.
