Melissa Gerson


I’ve dedicated my career to treating eating disorders, having helped thousands of adults, adolescents, children and their families battle these conditions. As the Founder and Director of Columbus Park Center for eating disorders, I am on the front line, providing thorough assessment and guiding patients in the most effective and efficient approach to eating disorder treatment. My personal therapeutic style is empathic, genuine and direct. In addition to extensive training and experience treating adult eating disorders, as a Certified Family Based Treatment (“Maudsley”) therapist, I am skilled at treating children and adolescents in their home environments, regularly avoiding the disruption of hospitalization. The most important factor in a successful treatment is the working relationship between therapist and client. Columbus Park is a team of therapists with the clinical experience, training and therapeutic tools to help our clients achieve the best treatment outcomes.
