Providing state-of-the-art treatment for eating disorders in an intimate, personalized setting
We believe that the best treatment for an eating disorder involves a team of professionals providing a combination of approaches. Although the eating behavior is only a symptom of an underlying emotional conflict, it does need to be directly addressed as new, healthier coping mechanisms are being learned.
Because we are a small practice attempting to keep administrative costs low, we do not employ a secretary. Therefore one of our therapists will respond to your first telephone call, generally within 24-48 hours. After a telephone conversation to discuss your concerns and answer your questions a first appointment will be scheduled with a therapist.
I received my BA from Dordt College in 1975 and my MSW from Western Michigan University in 1984. My early years as a social worker were spent in child welfare; just after graduate school I treated my first individual with an eating disorder and soon began pursuing this as a specialty.
