Eating Disorders

The therapeutic course of treatment for any eating disorder plan involves a professional team of specialists. The three specialists that are involved include a physician, psychotherapist and a Registered Dietitian. Each person plays a unique roll along with the family to treat this disorder. The entire process is slow and painful for everyone involved. Progress depends upon the patient and team that are involved in the entire process. The specific Eating Disorders that I can assist with include:

  • Anorexia Nervosa
  • Bulimia Nervosa
  • Diabulemia
  • Compulsive Overeating
  • Compulsive Exercising
