Specialized Treatment of Eating Disorders
What is an Eating Disorder?
Eating Disorders (ED) are associated with a change in eating behaviors and often an intense fear of gaining weight. It is the most deadly mental health disorder. Eating Disorders commonly occur with depression, anxiety, OCD and trauma. People diagnosed with ED are four times more likely to have substance abuse disorders. Due to these co-occurrences, unique personal ED behaviors, and the high death rate, comprehensive assessment is crucial.

Eating Disorder Services
Our providers are highly collaborative and work with each individual client and their treatment team, (such as primary care doctors, medication providers and dietitians) to asses, create and implement an individualized plan toward recovery and health. This may involve varying levels of care from individual therapy, to intensive outpatient programs, to a combination of services designed to best address the needs of the client.
Intensive Outpatient Programs
Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) are a group-based, more intensive form of treatment for individuals who need more support than weekly individual therapy or are transferring out of higher level of care (residential care or hospitalization). Through this group, participants will receive education, skills teaching, meal support, nutrition education, somatic resourcing, spiritual guidance, and movement therapies specifically designed for those with eating disorders.
Family-Based Treatment (FBT) is the leading evidence-based approach to help families with adolescents struggling with eating disorders. The aim of FBT is to equip parents with the tools to help their loved one recover and return to normal life.
Nutrition counseling is essential in the treatment of eating disorders. Our team of Registered & Licensed Dietitians (RDN, LD) support and assist individuals in meeting nutritional goals and progressing in recovery by way of education, supportive groups and individual sessions. Clients learn to incorporate a new, balanced approach to eating that promotes a healthy mind-body connection.
