Eating disorders are serious problems that can lead to many medical complications and are linked with other mental health concerns, such as depression, anxiety and substance abuse. Due to the shame many people experience when suffering from an eating disorder, they may be reluctant to seek help. For children and adolescents, parents may suspect something is wrong but are uncertain of where to turn or what to do. Seeking professional help is an important first step to recovery and will help achieve a lifetime of good mental and physical health.
Our first priority in treating clients is to develop a treatment plan guided by scientifically-determined first-line treatments for eating disorders while simultaneously tailoring the plan to the individual's unique situation. We involve physicians, dieticians, and psychiatrists, as needed, in our multidisciplinary approach. We collaborate with a network of physicians to help manage medical complications. Our clinicians have received extensive training in evidence-based treatments for eating disorders, including cognitive behavioral therapy, family-based treatment (i.e., Maudsley approach), interpersonal psychotherapy, dialectical behavioral skills, adolescent-focused therapy, and specialist supportive clinical management.
