Compassionate Care for Eating Disorders

Our Mission is to provide a space for empowered healing from eating disorders, and other food, body image, weight and related concerns. We believe that full recovery from eating disorders is possible.

How We're Different

Our holistic approach to treatment is based on yogic philosophies integrated within evidence-based behavioral and psychodynamic therapies. We offer treatment that is responsive to the latest research, while acknowledging that each client is more than a diagnosis and may need more than traditional manualized treatments. In the spirit of healing and engaging a whole recovery, we encourage involvement from family, friends, and partners in your treatment. Successful healing from an eating disorder means more than just stopping behaviors -- it means being back in your life in a connected way, including the relationships that are most important to you.

When There's Help, There's Hope

Our Philosophy is based on the understanding that eating disorders and related food & body image issues are multidimensional. We acknowledge brain-based biological and neurological components as contributors along with physiological, psychological/emotional, behavioral, social, relational, familial, and spiritual factors. With this philosophy in mind, we offer an integrated approach to treatment designed to support a complete recovery. Our Values are expressed in our treatment model as well as how we run our business. Living a valued life means being connected to other people and the greater world. It means honesty, integrity, and the ability to take responsibility for oneself. It means making conscious efforts every day to live in a place of compassion and open-heartedness. It means believing in the sunny warmth of a new day, while accepting that sometimes we all have to live in the grey.
