      About First Things First For Eating Disorders…

      First Things First is neither a Support Group nor is it a Therapy Group. First Things First is an Interactive Motivational Group for Positive Change. The focus in First Things First is to give attendees the mindset to adjust their convictions and behaviors strongly in favor of lasting recoveries.

      First Things First meetings are professionally led by William Skerker, a Manhattan therapist in private practice for 39 years. First Things First meetings are FREE of charge and are open ONLY to those with an eating disorder AND to supportive families and friends of eating disordered individuals.

      Future dates, last minute information, weather cancellations, and any changes will be posted on the First Things First Website

      All personal and group information is held in confidence by myself and Ellen Schieren, the CoAdministrator of First Things First.

      On a personal note, many people have reported that seeking an individual therapist has been a daunting experience fraught with time and expense. For persons that are seeking a therapist I offer a complimentary first consultation as a matter of course. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns regarding First Things First, or if you have questions about treatment or wish to set up a consultation.

      Always feel free to contact Ellen Schieren or myself for any questions, concerns, or information!
