Stephanie Diamond, PhD
is a licensed psychologist and certified eating disorder specialist and approved supervisor (CEDS-S). Dr. Diamond received her doctorate in counseling psychology from the University of Miami and has a master’s degree in the same discipline from McGill University in Montreal, Canada. Prior to opening her practice, Dr. Diamond served as Clinical Director of a residential treatment program at Oliver-Pyatt Centers, where she worked for nearly seven years, helping women recover from eating disorders and other complex psychiatric illness. She currently works with varied individuals and families in her practice. She is known for her psychodynamic understanding of her patients, her capacity to deeply connect with those she works with, and her direct, yet warm, therapeutic style. Dr. Diamond's patients tend to be people who are stuck in patterns/relationships/ways of thinking that are holding them back but are afraid to change/don't know how/are unconsciously perpetuating patterns. She helps people to gain insight, clarity, and new ways of thinking and new skills, so that they can find truth, freedom, and become their best selves. Her goal is to help each of her patients develop increased self-awareness, while encouraging growth, efficacy, empowerment, and profound healing.
Dr. Diamond is a member of the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP) Miami Chapter, serving as the Certification Chair. She has presented nationally on the topic of self-compassion, and on a myriad of themes related to the residential treatment of eating disorders at various conferences, including IAEDP, the Multi-Service Eating Disorders Association (MEDA), the Eating Disorder Coalition of Tennessee (EDCT), Binge Eating Disorder Association (BEDA), and the Association for Size Diversity and Health (ASDAH).
