Center for Healthy Eating and Activity Research
Behavioral Health Clinic Overview
TELE-MEDICINE NOW AVAILABLE!
At CHEAR, we believe the best weight for you is your weight when living a healthy, values-based life that you honestly, actively enjoy. We know there are numerous factors that lead to weight gain, many of which are due to biology/genetics and the environment. We believe that weight gain is not your fault and that weight is just a number and only one indicator of health. Your weight does not define you as a person.
Our goal is to help you create individually tailored healthy habits that last a lifetime. Our expert clinicians will work with you to identify individual factors leading to certain eating behaviors and teach you evidenced-based skills to manage these factors including:
- Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Family Based Therapy (FBT)
- Behavioral Weight Loss (BWL)
- Regulation of Cues (ROC)
- Parent Based Training
- And more!
The CHEAR Outpatient Clinic offers two levels of service: Outpatient and Intensive Outpatient (IOP). Every patient receives a 90-minute clinical assessment (i.e., intake) with our experienced and compassionate staff. Once the initial intake is complete, the clinician will discuss any relevant diagnosis, treatment recommendations (including level of care) and, if needed or requested, community referrals. An individualized treatment plan is developed for every patient to identify specific behaviors to target in order to improve their health and quality of life.
Areas of treatment include: binge eating, overeating, emotional eating, weight loss, bulimia and comorbid disorders (depression, anxiety).
We offer daytime and some evening appointments Monday – Friday
