Our Philosophy 

We operate from a holistic perspective that recognizes the entire person -- not just the eating disorder. We understand that eating disorders are not just about the food and the way you feel about your body. Our multidimensional, trans-diagnostic approach treats all of the problems you may struggle with,  including trauma, substance abuse, family/relationship problems, perfectionism/people pleasing, anxiety, depression, and the thoughts and beliefs that may be preventing you from living your best life.  

  • Providing evidence-based care that is informed by current research 

  • Fostering an inclusive, safe and welcoming environment that respects people of all faiths, backgrounds, abilities, and bodies

 

  • Prioritizing the health, safety and progress of the people we work with by collaborating with Primary Care Physicians, Psychiatrists, and Registered Dietitian

  • Health At Every Size® Principles:

  1. Weight Inclusivity: Accept and respect the inherent diversity of body shapes and sizes and reject the idealizing or pathologizing of specific weights.


  2. Health Enhancement: Support health policies that improve and equalize access to information and services, and personal practices that improve human well-being, including attention to individual physical, economic, social, spiritual, emotional, and other needs.

     


  3. Respectful Care: Acknowledge our biases, and work to end weight discrimination, weight stigma, and weight bias. Provide information and services from an understanding that socio-economic status, race, gender, sexual orientation, age, and other identities impact weight stigma, and support environments that address these inequities.

     


  4. Eating for Well-being: Promote flexible, individualized eating based on hunger, satiety, nutritional needs, and pleasure, rather than any externally regulated eating plan focused on weight control.

     

  5. Life-Enhancing Movement: Support physical activities that allow people of all sizes, abilities, and interests to engage in enjoyable movement, to the degree that they choose.
