Here at Northside Mental Health, we have many providers who specialize in eating disorders and disordered eating recovery. We offer individual and family therapy to women and men, as well as adolescents and children. Our therapists have expertise and significant experience in the treatment of bulimia, anorexia, binge eating disorder, and other patterns of disordered eating. Our providers believe that the best treatment approach for addressing eating concerns is team oriented. We have a registered dietician here on staff as well as a marriage and family therapist. We work with other providers, such as psychiatrists and primary care doctors in the community to round out the team, if necessary. Additionally, Northside offers other recovery-oriented services in addition to traditional therapy to boost support in the process of recovery. Group therapy, dietician facilitated restaurant outings, recovery coach services, and peer led support groups are just some of the additional services offered here. Ask your provider or check out our calendar of events to learn more and see when these other services are offered.

Therapy in a group setting can be a great way to supplement and boost the work someone is doing with his or her individual therapist. It can also be a great way to step into therapy if one is not so sure about the process. We offer a handful of groups with different issues of focus.
