Eating Disorder Recovery Services

Our Eating Disorder Services

Because each individual’s goals, history, and context are unique, our approach is integrative and client-centered. The term integrative may seem vague, but based on our clinical experience and learning, we do not believe adhering to one theory or approach is beneficial, nor is it effective.

Instead we collaborate with our clients to determine biological, psychological, and social influences on their struggles, which then informs treatment recommendations moving forward.

Individual and Couples Therapy

Our Eating Disorder Team offers individual, family, and couples therapy for children (10+), adolescents, and adults.


In addition to therapy, nutrition, and medical support, those seeking recovery find that having a psychiatry provider who also has ample knowledge of eating disorders is an integral part of their journey.


Psychedelic Assisted Therapy

Ketamine is a fast-acting, highly effective treatment for depression that has not responded to other treatments. Additionally, it shows promise in the treatment of PTSD, OCD and Eating Disorders. 

Comprehensive Evaluation and Psychological Assessment

Psychological assessment is a brief, intensive treatment model that can help identify emotional, learning, and attentional conditions that can contribute to an eating disorder. 


We believe an integrative approach that addresses the mind-body connection leads to sustainable recovery. Neurofeedback is an additional intervention that focuses on the ‘rewiring’ of the brain and Central Nervous System, leading to improvement in symptoms and behaviors
