Initial Diagnostic Evaluation and Consultation
Utilizing evidence-based therapy is important to our team, as these treatments show the most convincing data and evidence that they help individuals improve and overcome their mental health struggles. We recognize that eating disorders are not typically as “black-and-white” as the categories we use to describe them, and many of the patients we see often fall just outside of those categories.
Due to the unique nature of problematic eating and the individual who struggles with food, body image and weight concerns, our first session consists of an in-depth, 90-120 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 may consist of collaboration with a dietician, psychiatrist and/or physician. In addition, appropriateness of outpatient treatment will be assessed, and depending on the severity of you or your child’s symptoms, a higher level of care may be recommended.
In addition to those with eating disorders, we also treat individuals who struggle with depression, anxiety disorders, and pre- and post-bariatric surgery support.
