Eating Disorders Treatment

I provide comprehensive care for people recovering from all types of eating disorders: anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, and obesity. The treatment can include individual psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, and group psychotherapy for both women and
men. Because eating disorders can affect many aspects of physical health, I also work closely with both primary care doctors and nutritionists.
Eating disorders have become epidemic in our society, yet it can be very difficult to find the right treatment to get well. Many psychiatrists do not have the specific training to work with people suffering from anorexia or bulimia, and even those with this specialty can be difficult to locate. One important service I provide is giving direction to find and to start the right type of treatment quickly. At these times, an initial consultation may be right to help someone begin a path towards recovery.
