Dr. Cristina Castagnini

Cristina Castagnini, Ph.D., CEDS is a licensed psychologist and is recognized as a certified Eating Disorder Specialist by the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP). She graduated with honors, earning her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of California, Santa Cruz; her Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology (with emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy) from Pepperdine University; and her Doctoral Degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Southern California.

For the past 20 years, Dr. Castagnini has been treating patients with a variety of mental health diagnoses, supervising postdoctoral residents, and continuing to grow her private practice. After overcoming her own struggles with having an eating disorder, it was always her dream to focus solely on helping women overcome their struggles with food and body image, and to achieve a balanced life.

She feels fortunate that she is now able to do just that as, in October of 2019, after 15 years as the lead adult Eating Disorder Specialist at Kasier Permanente in Pleasanton, CA, Dr. Castagnini left to open the doors to her private practice full time in San Ramon, CA.

She is currently a member of the Academy for Eating Disorders (AED), the Center for Mindful Eating, the International Association for Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP), and is a Body Image Ambassador for the Body Image Movement (BIM).
