Karen R. Koenig, M.Ed., LCSW (L), is a psychotherapist, blogger, educator, and expert on the psychology of eating, the why and how, not the what, of it. She has 30 years of experience teaching chronic dieters and overeaters how to become “normal” eaters. And, how to develop a positive relationship with food and their bodies.
Her education includes training at Boston University, Simmons College School of Social Work, and Adelphi University.
She is the author of seven books on eating and weight. Koenig teams up with Paige O’Mahoney to provide a cutting edge way for doctors and health care providers to treat high weight patients in a new book, “Helping Patients Outsmart Overeating: Psychological Strategies for Doctors and Health Care Providers” (January 12, 2017).
Paige O’Mahoney, M.D., CHWC (R), is the co-author, with eating disorders therapist Karen R. Koenig, M.Ed., LCSW, of Helping Patients Outsmart Overeating: Psychological Strategies for Doctors and Health Care Providers.
A health and wellness coach, certified Intuitive Eating counselor, retired pediatrician, author, and foodie, she helps men and women overcome overeating and create purposeful, satisfying lives.
