Eating Disorders

Eating Disorders, including anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder, are serious disorders that are associated with numerous medical problems. If you see us for an eating disorder you should also be followed by a physician. The Academy for Eating Disorders has published guidelines for medical doctors treating eating disorders. You can download these guidelines and bring them to your medical doctor if he/she is not an eating disorder specialist. If additional services are needed we can provide some referrals to other professionals.

Sometimes clients need more support for their eating disorder than can be provided through outpatient therapy. If we feel that a higher level of care is warranted we will provide referrals. Dr. Muhlheim maintains connections to many different treatment centers locally as well as nationwide.

Eating Disorder Therapy LA provides cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to adults and older adolescents with eating disorders and family based treatment (Maudsley model) to children and adolescents with eating disorders. We also provide nutritional counseling and groups focusing on nutrition and yoga/movement.
