“Relationship, relationship, relationship!”
Harin’s bias is that relationships are the most essential aspect of therapy.
It’s where you first obtain the blueprint for who you are and who you strive to become.
Through them, you learn all the nuances of connection and disconnection with body, self and others.
They provide the interface between self and other and the founation for how one operates in the world.
They are the source of one’s greatest joy and one’s deepest suffering.
Harin believes and empirical evidence supports that growth and change happen within the therapeutic relationship and sometimes,
“It just ain’t easy!”
So, with 30 plus years of experience, she builds trusting relationships and creates a safe space where she encourages and challenges individuals, couples, families, and groups to discover, to understand and to practice new behaviors, take risks and stay curious. With great skill and patience, Harin seems to intuitively know when to push forward and when to pull back. With creativity and flexibility, she models mindfulness and helps her clients to integrate mind, body and spirit.
Harin is a nationally recognized authority on the prevention and treatment of eating and body image disorders. She is the creator and was the director of “Body Balance”, an innovative treatment program for large women at the Renfrew Center of Philadelphia.
