Support and education throughout the treatment process is provided by our experienced and caring staff, who believe that full recovery from an eating disorder is possible. We practice clinical excellence through established and empirically- validated therapeutic models.
Our philosophical framework utilizes Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to support our patients in achieving long-lasting behavior changes based on acceptance and mindfulness practices.
We also engage our patients in intensive shame resiliency and self-compassion work, trauma therapy grounded in attachment theory and movement therapy, skill building groups based on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and expressive therapies such as art, dance, and equine therapy.
Every patient is valued for her unique journey and individual needs, with whole-person care as the basis of every treatment plan.
"I will carry on with the knowledge that human connection has been and will continue to be an important part of my recovery and maintain good mental health."- A.S.
We believe that food and body mirror relationships with self and others, and that eating disorders are windows to the soul that often shed light on deeper struggles such as being born with a sensitive temperament, less-than-nurturing life events, or struggles with depression or anxiety. Our treatment goal is to provide the tools and therapeutic space for each woman to overcome her personal food and weight struggles for lasting recovery.
