Gina Scarano-Osika, PhD
Psychologist in Private Practice and at North East Center of Excellence in Eating Disorders

How did you get started in your career? 
I focused on research in the beginning, published a few journal articles and became well versed in evidence-based treatment for eating disorders. I began work at a private practice in 1994 and five years later moved closer to home and opened my own practice with my husband, a child psychologist. Now I am an out-patient provider for the North East Center of Excellence in Eating Disorders, which is an in-patient hospital affiliated with Strong Memorial and NY Presbyterian. I also do mental health evaluations for people seeking gastric bypass surgery at Albany medical Center or Ellis Hospital.

What advice would you give to someone new to the field? 
Read contemporary research articles about the mind-body connection and consult with a specialist in the field. Treat the patient until you find something that works.
