What is your treatment approach for adults? Our approach is based on Dr. Fairburn's Enhanced Cognitive Behavioral Treatment and includes Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. We will work with you to implement behavioral changes including regular eating and systematic exposure to “forbidden” foods. We will help you create motivation for change, challenge distortions in the experience of shape and weight, and personal identity. We integrate mindfulness and acceptance techniques to help you regulate emotions and disengage from eating-disordered thoughts. Gradual and systematic exposure to feared foods will ultimately lead to a reduction in anxiety about these foods.

What is your treatment approach for children/adolescents? We treat children and adolescents with eating disorders using Family-Based Treatment (FBT).
