After gathering information about your history and goals, we tailor a plan to help you develop healthy eating habits. We realize that not every patient responds to every type of therapy. Our doctors and therapists identify the best method to improve your relationship with food.
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Combines advances in cognitive-behavioral treatment with mindfulness-based approaches. This helps you learn to be more aware and accepting of ongoing joyous and aversive experiences so that life becomes more vital from moment to moment. We’ll also help you develop problem-solving and meal-planning skills and explain the importance of food diaries.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
Emphasizes how you experience and respond to your emotions. You’ll learn how to keep your emotions in check, become more mindful, and improve your interpersonal skills. The goal of this therapy is to reduce the symptoms that trigger your eating disorder.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
We encourage you to notice and accept unwelcome thoughts and feelings that contribute to disordered eating rather than trying to control or block them. We also work with you to help you identify your personal values so you can find greater meaning in life.
Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy
Builds on what is known about physiological changes that occur with the experience of traumatic life events. By helping you to activate the restorative branch of your nervous system in the presence of aversive remembrances, you will be taught to more fully experience the full range of emotions rather than being closed off due to past traumatic events.
We help you build and maintain quality relationships with family members, friends and co-workers, all of who help to reduce the symptoms of your eating disorders.
Family-Based Eating Disorder Treatment
We believe it’s important to involve your social support network in your treatment. Your family members will be part of the support team that helps you restore your health.
Group Eating Disorder Treatment
Group support can be invaluable in regaining your footing, whether you or your loved one is struggling with an eating disorder. We offer several ongoing skill-focused group treatments. Some are geared for adults and adolescents with eating disorders, and others for parents and spouses of patients.
Essential to restoring healthy eating habits, nutrition therapy starts with a one-on-one evaluation with a registered dietitian who assesses your current eating habits and designs a program tailored to your specific needs. We design meal plans to establish a healthy and balanced diet, taking into account your preferences, schedule, and metabolic needs.
Food and Mood Program
Understanding how certain foods affect your mood and emotions can help you make better food choices. We help you increase your awareness of the complex interaction between foods and mood through the use of cell phone apps and biological measurements, such as your blood sugar and stress hormone levels.
We are at the forefront of care for this newly recognized eating problem, where children and adults severely restrict the types of food they eat or reject foods on the basis of taste, texture, or sensory quality. This eating pattern can lead to inadequate nutrition, family conflict, and social isolation. If you are affected by selective eating, you will learn skills that help you manage fears of necessary foods.
