About Our Eating Disorders Team

Our providers are all hired because they come to EBTCS with graduate and/or postgraduate specialist training in eating disorder treatment. Once at EBTCS, they receive further specialist training, including at least one year of supervision by experts in treating eating disorders. All our staff-level providers are certified in Family-Based Treatment, which is the gold-standard treatment for Anorexia Nervosa with youth. Additionally, our therapists receive extensive training in other evidence-based treatments that may co-occur with eating disorders, including anxiety, trauma, and many others. All of our providers attend regular, ongoing trainings to stay up-to-date on the latest developments in evidence-based care and value a science-based approach to treatment that is tailored to the needs of every individual and family.
