The Collective

Our Collective Team Members work in the realm of eating disorder treatment and have come together to donate their time and services to our Treatment Access Program. Success applicants are paired with a Registered Dietitian and a therapist for outpatient eating disorder treatment free of cost.

All clinicians use a Health At Every Size® (HAES®) approach to recovery. You can learn more here!
