Women’s Eating Disorder Treatment

We offer holistic, evidence-based treatment for women with eating disorders. Our goal is to help you achieve wellness in body, mind and spirit as you loosen the hold your eating disorder has maintained over your life.

Treatment for Eating Disorders

Our women’s eating disorder program offers a safe, nurturing haven where you’ll receive specialized care from trained eating disorders experts. You’ll address underlying issues that contribute to your illness, learn self-acceptance and healthy coping skills, and change your relationship with food from a way to cope and control to a means for nourishing the body and mind.

Our experienced treatment team includes a medical director who specializes in treating eating disorders, a dietitian who has worked with people with eating disorders for over 20 years, and master’s level clinicians. You’ll receive meal time support and nutritional counseling and engage in body image work, trauma-focused therapies, mindfulness, adventure therapies, and real-word recovery experiences like grocery shopping and dining out.

Our treatment approach is comprehensive and multilayered, which helps us customize care to meet your specific needs. Some of the therapies we offer include:

  • Individual, group and family therapy
  • Nutrition counseling
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • Psychiatric care
  • Trauma-focused counseling
  • Experiential therapies
  • Body image counseling
  • Eating disorder support groups
  • Mindfulness training and other mind/body holistic practices

Types of Eating Disorders

There are four categories of eating disorders. We treat individuals struggling with all four of these types of eating disorders.

Anorexia Nervosa

  • Low calorie consumption that leads to progressive and continuous weight loss
  • Extremely poor nutrition that causes additional health troubles
  • Obsessive concern with being overweight that has no connection to reality
  • Compulsive exercise and calorie counting
  • Strong denial that anything is wrong no matter how much weight has been lost

Bulimia Nervosa

  • Binging on large quantities of food on a regular basis
  • Purging after binging, using laxatives, chemicals or other techniques to provoke vomiting or diarrhea
  • Compulsive exercise and dieting
  • Shame and guilt over binging episodes, without any changes in behavior

Binge Eating Disorder

  • Periodic episodes of binging not accompanied by purging
  • Hiding binging behavior from family and friends
  • Shame, guilt and embarrassment, without changes in behavior
  • Fluctuations in weight with a long-term tendency to become overweight

Unspecified Eating Disorders

  • Less severe or life-altering versions of anorexia or bulimia
  • Partial manifestation of symptoms associated with anorexia, bulimia or binge eating (purging with no binging, night binging, etc.)

Without treatment, each type of eating disorder can cause serious health problems.
