As one who has suffered and recovered from eating disorders, I know personally and professionally the challenges of recovering. I have weighed as little as 79 pounds and as much as over 200. Recovery is a journey of highs and lows, but the direction we move in in therapy remains steady. I use an individualized and collaborative approach to treatment. It is positive, supportive, and comprehensive. If I recovered, you can do.

Once you learn that you can feel these difficult feelings than you no longer have to avoid them with food.

Eating disorders are about more than just the food one eats. At the Lukin Center, our therapists work with clients to target the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors associated with eating. Clients often have thoughts about their body and the way they look, feel the need to control their caloric intake in order to be perfect, or create a number of rituals surrounding food. Our therapists use cognitive behavioral therapy, one of the best treatments for eating disorders, in order to treat the person and not just the disease.
