Therapist, LMSW   Lakewood Township, NJ


Esther Bursztyn is a Licensed Social Worker, currently working at Empower Health Center in Lakewood, New Jersey. She specializes in the treatment of eating disorders, trauma disorders, and borderline personality disorder. Esther has received intensive training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy by Behavioral Tech and in Dialectical Behavior Therapy-Prolonged Exposure by Melanie Harned, PhD. She also receives ongoing supervision and training in the treatment of eating disorders through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals. Esther has a wealth of experience in the treatment of eating disorders, women's trauma, and group facilitation.

Eating disorders require specialized care, informed by evidence-based research, strong training, and collaboration with other eating disorder professionals. Esther’s approach to eating disorder care is based on a Health At Every Size perspective, wherein she helps her clients learn to eat intuitively, improve body image, and reduce focus on weight and size.

Despite the overwhelming hopelessness that may overcome individuals living with longstanding eating disorders, trauma, and/or BPD, Esther believes in each person’s ability to make tremendous life changes. The treatments she utilizes, such as DBT and exposure therapies, are treatments that work, and can help YOU move towards a life worth living.
