TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY:

I work with adult patients with eating disorders in a multidisciplinary setting (ie: therapist, MD, Psychiatrist). I use our first session to assess the patient and to establish an ongoing relationship. I work at the pace of the patient and make slow, gradual nutrition changes. I feel you can recover from an eating disorder. I define recovery as separating emotions from food and establishing a healthy relationship with food that is non-harming to the body.
