Evidence-Based Treatment, Personalized Care
At The Emily Program, we combine our evidence-based treatment with personalized holistic care. We’ve found that effective eating disorder treatment requires awareness of the genetic, biological, psychological, social, and cultural impacts on each client.

- Dialectical Behavior Therapy
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- Yoga, art, meditation, and mindfulness therapy
- Recreation, gardening, cooking, dining out experiences
- LGBTQ or other sexuality support
- Trauma recovery
- Pregnancy support
- Chemical dependency substance use services
- Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)
- And more
Advancing eating disorder care and awareness
Our professional staff has extensive experience in treating and studying anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating, compulsive overeating, obesity, other specified feeding and eating disorders (OSFED). In addition to one-to-one and group care services, we actively partner in research projects, collaborating with the University of Minnesota, Argosy University, University of St. Thomas, Mayo Clinic, Hennepin County, and others.
Several staff members also have a personal experience with recovery, and their work often extends beyond caring for clients. Many are involved with prevention efforts that promote awareness of eating disorder causes and effects on families and our communities. We truly care.
“We think like people with eating disorders think,” says our Chief Executive Officer and Founder, Dirk Miller, Ph.D., L.P. “We are our clients. We know the changes people need to make to live through an eating disorder’s destructive patterns of thoughts and feelings. We know how to restore people to whole and happy lives.”
