Eating Disorders

Disordered eating and body image concerns are problems that impact millions of individuals around the world. Eating disorders are serious psychiatric disorders that have many co-occurring issues (i.e., depression, anxiety, perfectionism, etc.) and related medical complications. The continuum of disordered eating treated at CHH ranges from compulsive exercise, continuous dieting, and emotional eating to diagnoses such as Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge-Eating Disorder, and Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified.

Many who experience eating disorders identify with feelings of shame, hopelessness, and frustration with prior treatment. Adolescents are often unaware that the problem exists, and many parents experience worry and confusion about the next step for their child. All too often, these variables lead to ambivalence towards recovery and reluctance towards treatment. The clinicians at CHH believe that eating disorders ought to be taken seriously and treated with the most cutting edge approaches. Our approach to treatment has been proven effective with a breadth of scientific research.

We treat most eating disorders with Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy-Enhanced (CBT-E) and components of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). For a specific sub-type of adolescents with Anorexia Nervosa, we utilize principles of Family-Based Treatment (FBT) or “The Maudsley Method.” Our treatment plans provide clients with a scientific rationale, targeted goals, collaboration, and individuality. Our mission to empower individuals to regain control over disordered eating and live a fulfilled, healthy life shines through the treatment provided at CHH.
