I take a biopsychosocial approach in helping patients to manage their eating disorders. This is reflecting the onset and maintenance of eating disorders which usually involve all these aspects. My training in psychodynamic psychotherapy and interpersonal therapy help me to provide a comprehensive assessment and treatment of patients with eating disorders. I strongly believe in a collaborative approach and invite input from family if the patient is agreeing.
