Jacob Pine is a licensed Clinical Social Worker in private practice in Manhattan.  He grew up in New York City, and did his undergraduate studies at The Johns Hopkins University and The Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore.  He earned his Masters degree in social work from Fordham University, and received his certificate in the integrated treatment of eating disorders from the Center for the Study of Anorexia and Bulimia, a division of the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy, a psychoanalytic training institute in Manhattan.

After college, Jacob had a long and successful career as a chef in and around NYC.  He became interested in understanding more deeply the relationships people have with food and diet.  He returned to school and began a new career.  His love and study of music, and his appreciation and knowledge of food permeate the work he does. He believes in addressing the issues at hand and treating people individually and with respect and understanding.  He is well-versed in a wide variety of theories and techniques, and uses them as indicated by both scientific research and professional experience.
