Conditions Treated

Eating Disorders

Eating disorders occur when an individual’s relationship with food spirals out of control and symptoms usually start sometime in late childhood and early adolescence. Eating disorders can have a significant impact on a child or adolescents mental and physical health and although serious, they are treatable.

Some common symptoms include:
  • Restricting food intake
  • Binging and purging
  • Abuse of laxatives and/or diuretics
  • Excessive exercise
  • Binging in private
  • Distorted body image and/or intense fear of gaining weight
  • Social isolation

At Union Square Practice, we provide a compassionate and individualized approach that often includes a combination of psychotherapy, meal support, medication, and parental guidance. Most treatment of eating disorders requires a team approach and we maintain close collaboration with other members of the treatment team.
