at the out-patient level of care.

We are a devoted and enthusiastic team of therapists and dietitians, dedicated both to our work and to our own self care. We believe that healing happens when we are most connected to ourselves and to each other, and strive to create warm, compassionate, and safe spaces for our clients to find their way back home to their own bodies.

We believe that all humans embody the right to feel at home in their bodies, exactly as they are, in peace. ACED is fully HAES-aligned, liberation-focused, anti-oppressive, and inclusive. We understand that eating disorders are a social justice issue.

We deeply value the autonomy of our clients and one another, which we define as the sovereign right each human has to their own body and life.

We hope you will join us. Reach out anytime for a phone consultation, or to ask any questions.
