Child and Adolescent Eating Disorders

Childhood and Adolescent eating disorders are serious illnesses that threaten your child's medical safety and the precious development of their sense of self. Early detection is critical. Along with my practice associate, Amanda Pashelinsky, LMHC, I strive to provide research-informed, compassionate care to the children, adolescents and parents who enter our doors. We collaborate with medical doctors, psychiatrists, and schools to ensure that your child's treatment is well coordinated and you feel effectively supported by your multidisciplinary team.

The First step…

Assessment is the first, most important way to determine whether or not your child has an eating disorder. This entails coming in with your child or teen to discuss your concerns, ask questions, receive a diagnosis for your child, and learn about what treatment options are available. If you have any concerns about your child’s eating or exercise behavior, relationship with food or body image, regardless of your child’s size, please do not hesitate to inquire.


If your child has an eating disorder…

Family-Based Treatment (FBT) is an early intervention designed to empower parents to play an active role in their child's recovery process. It is considered the gold standard of treatment for youngsters struggling with Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and sub-threshold eating disorders. It offers a safe alternative to a disrupting inpatient hospitalization or day treatment program and has an evidence base to back it up as the first-line treatment approach for youngsters with eating disorders.
