We believe that eating disorder symptoms have been useful to a person in some way. This may sound strange, but whether they have helped disguise unhappy feelings, reduce intense bouts of anxiety or relieve the frustration of feeling out of control, the symptoms have worked to temporarily disguise inner conflict, even if at a great cost. We work with clients to develop new ways of coping with those intense emotions, without resorting to self-destructive behaviors. We recognize that it is rarely the case that an individual comes in with “just” an eating disorder. We often treat co-occurring depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, self-injury and substance abuse. Our eating disorder treatment programs are comprehensive and include interventions for complex situations.
