Clare A. Stadlen, LCSW, CEDS


Clare is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist (CEDS), with over two decades of professional experience in counseling and psychotherapy. She began her career in New York City where she obtained her Bachelor’s Degree from The New School for Social Research and her Master’s Degree from Columbia University.

Clare has worked extensively with women, men, adolescent girls, and college and graduate students. She gained comprehensive experience in the treatment of trauma and eating disorders while working at the Renfrew Center, an internationally renowned residential treatment center.  She continues to attend conferences and trainings regularly and has a particular interest in studying the intersection of mind-body experience and the new research into the brain and it’s generative (and re-generative) responses to attachment and interpersonal relationships. Clare also has a background in art and enjoys incorporating creative arts in the therapeutic process.

Clare is bilingual and has enjoyed the opportunity to provide therapy in both English and Spanish. She has lectured at high schools, universities, and international conferences on the subjects of body image, therapeutic modalities, and diversity in eating disorder treatment. Clare has been in private practice in North Carolina since 2001. She loves her work as a psychotherapist and as a supervisor for new social workers seeking licensure and professionals seeking eating disorder training.


Clare’s clinical orientation begins with recognition of the “continuity of being” – a concept rooted in Object Relations Theory, though also embraced and expressed in many therapeutic models. In practice, Clare’s approach incorporates a variety of theoretical schools, including Ego Psychology, Object Relations, Gestalt, Analytical, Cognitive-Behavioral, Family Systems, Feminist Psychoanalytic, Relational, Expressive Arts Therapies, Somatic (body-oriented approaches) and Mindfulness.

Having worked with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship issues and struggles with food, weight, body image, and disordered eating, Clare recognizes that all mental health symptoms are in place for reasons. Clare utilizes the psychotherapy work to uncover those reasons and discover more effective means of caring for Self. Exploring family dynamics, life experiences, personal beliefs, and both conscious and unconscious aspects of Self are all part of the therapeutic process. Working with Clare involves engaging with conscious and unconscious material which surfaces in the psychotherapy room as well as bringing attention to body sensations, feelings, thoughts and behavior patterns, developing insights, and strategizing solutions.

Clare’s Hours:

Monday through Thursday: 10am – 6pm
