Name/Practice Name: Susan Ice
Credentials: MD, adult and adolescent psychiatrist
191 Presidential Blvd., Suite 113
Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004
Working with people with eating disorders since: 1985
Specialties and Populations Served: Adolescents and adults, cis-gender and transgender individuals who have eating disorders or disordered eating, and their families.
Treatment approach and additional information: I have spent most of my career (32 out of 40 years) treating eating disorders. While my approach is eclectic and practical, suited to the specific needs of the particular individual seeking my help, I draw on years of experience in outpatient and inpatient settings, working with a variety of other disciplines as part of a team. My foundation is my psychodynamic and narrative psychotherapy background, supplemented by various cognitive, behavioral and experiential strategies. I believe an adolescent with an eating disorder cannot be successfully treated without the family, and so my approach to this younger age group relies heavily on family theory and therapy. And finally, I rely on psychotherapy and medication to treat psychiatric disorders that are often co-occurring.
