AMY PERSHING, LMSW, ACSW, Clinical Director, Program Director, Bodywise
Pershing began her career treating the spectrum of eating and body image disorders at the Center for Eating Disorders (CED) in Ann Arbor, MI, in 1991. In 1993, she developed "Bodywise™," a comprehensive treatment program to serve a growing population of clients coming to the center with binge eating disorder (BED). Pershing became CED's clinical director in 1998.
In 2008, Pershing and Chevese Turner, CEO and founder of Binge Eating Disorder Association (BEDA), joined forces to found Pershing Turner Centers in Annapolis, Maryland. Pershing Turner Centers treat the full spectrum of eating disorders in adults and adolescents using a multidisciplinary "whole person" treatment approach to recovery.
Pershing has pioneered an integrated approach based on more than 28 years of clinical experience. This unique treatment approach incorporates a variety of clinical paradigms, including internal family systems (IFS) theory, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), mindfulness strategies, and a range of somatic trauma techniques. Her approach also integrates intuitive eating and movement and a "health at every size" philosophy. In addition, Pershing offers training and supervision to clinicians treating BED nationwide. She has developed two- and three-day Intensives for those in recovery, as well as "Hungerwise™," a 10-week program for ending chronic dieting and weight cycling.
Pershing lectures nationally and writes extensively on the treatment of BED and her own recovery journey for both professional and lay communities. She has been featured on numerous radio and television programs speaking about BED treatment and recovery, relapse prevention, weight stigma, and intuitive eating and movement. Pershing has also served on a variety of professional boards and currently serves as the 2013 Chair of the Binge Eating Disorder Association. She maintains a clinical practice at both centers.

Amy Pershing
Pershing founded Bodywise in 1993 in Ann Arbor, MI. The program developed from Pershing's work with hundreds of clients struggling with BED and related disorders, and discovering what approaches and interventions worked best. From this work, a program developed that is tailored to the unique recovery needs of every client. Pershing has recovered from BED herself, and knows how difficult it can be to find a program that addresses the complexity of this disorder. As a result, Pershing and Chevese Turner, CEO and Founder, The Binge Eating Disorder Association (BEDA), joined forces to open a second Bodywise office in Annapolis, MD.
