Eating Disorders We Treat at Our St. Paul–Como Location

Our St. Paul–Como location offers specialized treatment for a wide spectrum of eating disorders. For individuals battling anorexia nervosa, characterized by an intense fear of gaining weight and a skewed self-perception, we have comprehensive treatment plans to guide you toward healing.

Our expertise also extends to treating bulimia nervosa, where individuals experience cycles of overeating followed by behaviors like self-induced vomiting or excessive exercise to counteract weight gain.

For those struggling with binge eating disorder, marked by excessive eating and feelings of loss of control, our St. Paul clinic provides the necessary support and guidance.

We also cater to individuals dealing with compulsive overeating, where frequent episodes of excessive eating occur, often not linked to actual hunger.

Furthermore, our clinic addresses conditions like OSFED (Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder) and ARFID (Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder). If you’re uncertain or have queries about your specific situation, we’re here to help. Reach out to us, and let us guide you.
