Clinic Statement

Having worked with hundreds of clients with body image disturbances, we understand that each individual is unique and presents with their own complex history that cannot be addressed with a generic treatment plan. We approach treatment utilizing an integrative model and believe that it is imperative not only to address body image symptoms but also to identify underlying psychological, emotional, familial, and behavioral causes. Each client's care is personalized to meet his or her needs and to insure the best possible prognosis.




The Los Angeles Body Dysmorphic Disorder & Body Image Clinic was founded by Arie Winograd, LMFT. The concept behind the clinic was to bring together experts in the field of body image disturbance in order to improve the prognoses of patients who often present with severe, complicated, and chronic symptoms. We approach treatment utilizing a multi-modal model and believe it is imperative to address each patient's past and current symptoms, character structure, and other psychological components.
