Is your child or teen struggling with an eating disorder? Or has "extreme picking eating", a fear of choking or vomiting? Are you unsure how to help or what to say to your child? Maybe you have tried everything and nothing is getting better. Or maybe your teen has been to an eating disorder treatment center and then upon returning home they slowly start struggling again. Whether your teen or child has an eating disorder or "extreme picky eating" or has already tried treatment I work collaboratively with you and your child to provide a path forward.
I partner with you, parents and caregivers, to help your child or teen. With my experience in treating eating disorders and your expertise in your family and child, we work together to help support your child's recovery from their eating disorder.
An eating disorder can make parenting feel impossible often leaving parents feeling stuck and even hopeless at times. With my 20-plus years of treating eating disorders, training in family-based treatment, and being a parent myself I invite you to reach out to me to discuss if family-based treatment is a good fit for your child and family.

Starting therapy for the treatment of an eating disorder often feels scary and overwhelming. During our initial sessions, I try my best to get to know your child and family. Parents appreciate being included in the treatment process. Most families report that they feel relief that they are getting help for their child's eating disorder and feel more confident in the path forward.

I would highly recommend Alison as a therapist and counselor, both as a nutritionist and psychotherapist. In dealing with food issues and eating disorders, it's important to have someone who is skilled in both areas, which Alison is.

I use Family-based treatment (FBT) when working with children and teens which empowers parents/caregivers to help their loved one recover from an eating disorder. Additionally, I help clients and families create a treatment team (doctor, dietitian, and/or psychiatrist if needed) that I stay in frequent contact with to ensure the highest quality of care.
