Eating Disorder Treatment

Eating Disorder Treatment

Our collaborative eating disorder services are tailored to meet the treatment needs of clients struggling from Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Binge Eating Disorder. We offer a wide range of daytime and evening services including nutrition education, meal support groups, and mixed eating disorder open process groups. We aim to explore the emotional and behavioral triggers to disordered eating patterns in an effort to understand and manage them with healthy alternatives. We provide evidence-based treatments such as DBT and CBT, which have been shown to be effective in the treatment of Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating, and eating disordered behavior.

Individual Counseling: Counseling will take place once an assessment is completed to help inform the team of your history, current needs, and best treatment geared toward recovery. Using empirically supported treatment, individual counseling will explore current behavior and ways to sustain a healthy lifestyle.

Nutritional Counseling: During the initial nutrition assessment, our registered dietitian will collect comprehensive information including anthropometric data and eating disorder behaviors, and create an individualized meal plan based on each client’s nutrition needs and goals. Our registered dietitian will meet with clients weekly or bi-weekly to explore behaviors, provide nutrition education, and collaboratively set goals.

Mixed Eating Disorder Group: We provide weekly open process groups open to those struggling with an eating disorder. The 50 minute open process group will allow for discussion of a wide range of eating disorder topics. Such topics will include, but will not be limited to: body image, intimacy, motivation, eating disorder origins, and coping skills.

Meal Support: Our meal support groups consist of 40 minutes to complete a meal followed by a 20 minute processing session. They are offered on an individual or group basis and can be provided at the office or a local restaurant for either lunch or dinner. The processing session after the meal allows space to discuss goal-setting and challenges that were faced during the meal.

Grocery Shopping: Grocery shopping will take place at a grocery store or market with our registered dietitian. Prior to the grocery store visit, clients will work with our registered dietitian to create an individualized shopping list. While at the store or market, clients will learn how to navigate aisles, understand nutrition labels, and purchase foods necessary to incorporate variety and balance within their meals.
