The CHEAR outpatient clinic provides evidence-based behavioral and mental health services for children, adolescents and adults. Our clinicians specialize in a wide variety of eating and weight-related disorders including binge eating, weight loss/management, gastroenterology problems, picky eating, as well as eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia. Treatment is available in an individual or a family setting and typically takes place once a week. We take some forms of insurance as well as having an affordable sliding scale fee for those whose insurance will not cover treatment at CHEAR.
Every family/individual receives a 90-minute clinical assessment (i.e., intake) in person at our office. At the end of this session, the clinician will discuss any relevant diagnoses, treatment recommendations and, if needed or requested, community referrals. An individualized treatment plan is then created to identify specific behaviors or emotions that people wish to change in order to reduce their suffering and improve their health and quality of life.
Areas of treatment include: restricting/dieting, purging, anxiety, emotion dysregulation, bingeing, excessive exercise, depression, and obesity/weight loss.
These behaviors can be a part of a number of diagnoses that we work with, including: Anorexia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, Bulimia Nervosa, Major Depressive Disorder, Avoidance Restrictive Food Intake Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
