Erika Jung, PhD
Dr. Erika Jung is a licensed psychologist (PSY30770) specializing in evidence-based treatment of eating disorders, disordered eating, and issues related to body image. Utilizing a Health at Every Size® perspective, she is committed to helping individuals, families, and communities heal from the harmful impact of diet culture. Her additional areas of clinical focus include depression, anxiety, trauma, sleep issues, and adjustment to life transitions. She has worked with adolescents and adults across the continuum of care utilizing techniques of cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused therapy. In addition to her clinical work conducting therapy with individuals and groups, she is also frequently consulted by other professionals regarding the treatment of eating disorders and the provision of size-inclusive services.
Dr. Jung's therapeutic style is active, collaborative, curious, and compassionate. What she finds most meaningful about being a therapist is the trust placed in the therapeutic relationship, and therefore she recognizes the importance of finding a therapist who is the right match for an individual's unique needs. She believes therapy is most effective when it provides a safe space for exploration of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors with openness and nonjudgment in order to make changes toward specific therapeutic goals.
Dr. Jung received her BA from Brown University. She earned her PhD in clinical psychology (health psychology focus) from Northwestern University. She completed her internship training at Stanford University Counseling and Psychological Services and her postdoctoral residency at Kaiser Permanente Redwood City. She is a staff psychologist at Kaiser Permanente Redwood City, where she is recognized as a Qualified Bilingual Service Provider (Spanish).
This provider does not currently work with individuals who are insured by Kaiser Permanente due to a conflict of interest.
