About Me


Eating disorder specialist Dr Deah Schwartz has more than 20 years experience using therapeutic arts, music, drama and recreation activities in a variety of clinical and educational settings with clients ranging in age from 5 to 80+.

She has a Doctorate in Education, a BA in Theater, an MS in Therapeutic Recreation, and an MA in Creative Arts Education. Deah is a Nationally Certified Recreation Therapist and was a lecturer at San Francisco State University for 10 years, preparing students for careers in Recreation Therapy.

Having studied theater at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York City and as a member of Actors’ Equity, Deah has a unique combination of experience as a performer, teacher and clinician. This background, coupled with her fervent belief in size acceptance, has led to her passionate involvement in the “LEFTOVERS Workbook/DVD set,” and she hopes that it will provide assistance in defining one’s own standard of beauty and finding ways to make peace with one’s body.

In addition to being a co-author and original cast member of “LEFTOVERS: THE UPS AND DOWNS OF A COMPULSIVE EATER,” Deah is one of the co-founders of Education Through Therapeutic Arts (ETTA) and co-author of the LEFTOVERS Workbook/DVD set.
