As a previous clinical director of an partial hospitalization eating disorder unit, and having myself fully recovered from many years ago, I am keenly aware of the magnitude of successes and failures one feels when they are faced with this disorder. It can take over your life, spinning you our of control and physically threatening your health for years to come. But there is help. With Cognitive/Behavioral Therapy, DBT, Mindfulness and weekly goal setting, your life can be in control again.

I work with the dynamics of eating disorders if and only if I can have a medical doctor or psychiatrist working with the patient too in case there is need for hospitalization. I have to take this attitude here because when one's weight drops too low, as in anorexia nervosa, even one glass of orange juice can kill one. Look at Karen Carpenter. For this I need medical cooperation.
