Tzivie Pill is a clinical social worker and therapist specializing in eating disorders, perinatal mental health, body image, career and family dynamics.
She is an active ally and advocate to the fat positive community; giving talks, writing blogs and administering groups to give a voice to every person no matter what body size. Tzivie believes inaction to critical social movements is detrimental as being against them, so Tzivie uses her voice, privilege and resources to be inclusive and ally with the black, LGBTQ and persons with disability communities.
Before becoming a therapist, Tzivie spent a decade working as an accountant and financial manager, and draws on this to help her clients that are feeling unfulfilled in their professional and personal relationships quiet their inner-critics using relational and psychodynamic approaches. In her work with eating disorder and body image clients, Tzivie practices using a Health at Every Size approach, which she believes is best aligned with helping her clients realize their true needs for positive self-perception and self-confidence, as well as holistic mental and physical health and wellbeing.
If you feel like you have been living for other peoples’ expectations and have lost touch with your own self; if you find that you spend more time surviving than thriving—Tzivie can help you unpack aspects of your life that feel burdensome, or may not be working. She will support you as you discover how to bring more authenticity, contentment, and joy into your everyday experiences, relationships, interactions.
Tzivie received her MSW from the Wurzweiler School of Social Work in New York, is a certified Eating Psychology Counselor, and received her BA in Accounting from Queens College. She lives in Atlanta GA with her husband, Shlomo, and is a mother to three children.
