Carrie Wasterlain, LMSW
Carrie Wasterlain, LMSW is a licensed master social worker who has spent the last four years working as both a clinician and administrator in the field of eating disorders. Carrie received her undergraduate education in public policy and visual arts at Duke University, and went on to earn a Masters Degree in clinical social work from NYU’s Silver School of Social Work. Carrie also holds a postgraduate certificate from NYU in Advanced Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, as well as specialized training in dialectical-behavioral therapy (DBT) and cognitive processing therapy (CPT) for trauma. Carrie has worked as both a primary therapist, intake specialist and program coordinator at the residential, day treatment and outpatient levels of care, receiving the majority of her training at Monte Nido’s Manhattan Partial and Intensive Outpatient programs. Her passion for helping each client heal their relationship with food and their body stems from her belief that self-worth and contentment can only be built from within and should be separated from body size or eating habits. In addition to serving as the Assistant Admissions Director, Carrie also leads BALANCE’s Emotional Eater’s group and assists with DTP and IOP programming. She is dedicated to fostering a non-judgmental and supportive environment in which those seeking support feel equipped with the space and guidance needed to move forward in their recovery. Carrie has worked with numerous clients and families, and understands the unique challenges that seeking eating disorder treatment can bring. She is passionate about helping clients and their families feel as comfortable and confident as possible as they pursue the path to recovery. In addition to her work at Monte Nido and BALANCE, Carrie has volunteered for the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) and served as a meal coach for Eating Disorder Recovery Specialists.
