Our clinicians are trained to provide trauma-informed therapy to survivors of sexual assault, childhood abuse, emotional abuse, domestic violence and other forms of relational trauma that have profound effects on human development and growth. Through our work together, you will begin to make sense of the parts of yourself that feel fragmented, untouchable. Your sleeplessness, anxiety, anger, exhaustion, panic and ways of providing comfort to your grieving heart will be attended to. On your own terms, we will partner with you while you create the foundation for the rest of your life.
EATING DISORDER TREATMENT
We provide specialized treatment for those seeking recovery from disordered eating, negative body image, binge eating disorder, bulimia, orthorexia. Guidance and education is also provided for those with general feelings of concern about the amount of energy and time spent on food or exercise. Through a combination of education, mind-body integration and DBT, skills development and warm, compassionate care, our clinicians look to guide patients towards a new path of recovery.
Our experience has shown that trauma recovery and eating disorder recovery often overlap. As such, our clinicians are highly trained and dedicated to carefully attending to the specific needs of patients in all aspects of recovery in order to help patients achieve a sense of balance and hope in their lives.
