Eating Disorder Specialized Treatment
Leah is a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist (CEDS) through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP), and has been specializing in the treatment of eating disorders for the majority of her career. Leah regularly treats clients with all types of eating disorders and disordered eating, regardless of specific symptoms presentation and severity, and utilizes a Health At Every Size (HAES) approach. Leah has experience treating clients at all levels of acuity, and if a client is not appropriate for outpatient treatment, Leah will do everything in her power to assist each client, and their family, in finding appropriate resources for their needs.
Leah actively collaborates with all providers necessary for the comprehensive care of each client. For client's with eating disorders, Leah will regularly be in contact with each client's dietitian, physician, and psychiatrist if applicable. If a client does not have a treatment team at time of assessment, Leah would be happy to assist in providing recommendations for trusted and competent referrals.
In addition to individual and family therapy, when appropriate Leah can support clients with exposure and response prevention, as well as therapeutic meals (in collaboration with client's dietitian) to provide real time support, as needed.
