Bio

Dr. Weise is a graduate of the Counseling Psychology Program at the University of Pittsburgh.  His doctoral training was primarily in psychodynamic and developmental models of psychology. He did his Internship at the Counseling Center at SUNY at Buffalo.  While in graduate school, he was a Teaching Fellow and taught Social Psychology and Introduction to Personality courses at the University of Pittsburgh.  He became a therapist in the Partial Hospitalization Program at Northern/Southwest Communities MH/MR doing individual and group therapy.  He later worked as a therapist at the Counseling and Student Development Center at Carnegie-Mellon University.

From 1993 to 1995, Dr. Weise was a Senior Research Associate for the Center for Overcoming Problem Eating at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic (WPIC), where he was involved in studies of anorexia and bulimia.  Preferring clinical work over doing research, he became a clinician and then Program Coordinator at the Eating Disorders Clinic at WPIC, where he did individual, family and group therapy in both the outpatient and Day Treatment programs.  At WPIC, Dr. Weise was trained in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).  Through these and other professional development experiences, eating disorders has become one of his specialty areas of practice. 

Dr Weise has been working full-time in private practice since 1999, during which he completed Level I and Level 2 training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).  His EMDR experience led to a greater appreciation of mind-body approaches and energy psychology.  His interest in Jungian psychology has informed his use of dreams and the healing functions of the psyche.  He respects Eastern wisdom and Western science.  He is devoted to helping others get past psychological and physical blocks so they can reach their fullest potential. 

Over the last fifteen years, Dr. Weise has given numerous lectures and seminars on the treatment of eating disorders. He has also given seminars and talks on mind-body wellness. 

His interest in mind/body/spiritual development led to his practice of Traditional Martial Arts, for which he is an Instructor.  He has written and played music in local bands.  He enjoys living and working in a multi-cultural community.  He now lives in Pittsburgh with his wife and two children.
