Due to the unique nature of problematic eating and a child who struggles with food, body image and weight concerns, our first session consists of an in-depth, 90- to 120-minute assessment of current and historical eating and activity-related behaviors, co-occurring mental health concerns and history, medical history and family history.
We will then collaborate on an individualized treatment plan which often includes a family therapy component. For some children and teens, we may recommend collaboration with a dietician, psychiatrist and/or physician. In addition, appropriateness of outpatient treatment will be assessed, and depending on the severity of your child’s symptoms, a higher level of care may be recommended.
In addition to those with eating disorders, we also treat children and teens who struggle with depression, anxiety disorders, and trauma-related concerns.
