Announcement icon To maintain safe social distancing, I am seeing patients online on a HIPAA compliant platform. Our Encourage Trauma IOP is also online.
Many people with eating disorders have a history of traumatic experiences, but I also believe that the eating disorder is a traumatic experience itself. When we treat eating disorders, we are treating trauma. People with eating disorders are often very accomplished because they are so hard-working and caring, but I always find myself wondering, what more could their life hold for them in recovery? How much more could they enjoy their accomplishments and their lives? In addition to my family/individual work with eating disorders, we offer an intensive outpatient program for trauma, promoting safety and support form trauma therapy.
I have treated eating disorders in inpatient and outpatient settings for more than 20 years and can assess the level of care and resources you need. It is important to address any other issues you may have such as personality disorders, mood disorders, anxiety and trauma. I provide treatment for these issues, whether or not an eating disorder is present.
I have worked with eating disorders as a clinician/advocate since 2000 and stay up to date on the latest research and best practices. Recovery takes time. People with eating disorders are full of beautiful potential, but trapped in dangerous behaviors, torturous thoughts The good news is that with your hard work and the support you deserve, you can recover.

Our groups provide patients with a supportive milieu to learn how to replace self-destructive coping behaviors with effective strategies, freeing them to directly address their trauma. enCOURAGE offers focused treatment for co-occurring diagnoses such as PTSD, mood disorders, anxiety and other mental health issues related to underlying trauma. We work closely with patients and their therapists to build safety and trust in this difficult process.
