MD, PhD

Medical Director

Joe Croizer (he/him) serves as Medical Director for The Emily Program’s North Carolina eating disorder treatment centers. Joe brings a unique approach to his clinical work that he credits to his training as both a psychiatrist and a clinical psychologist.

Before joining The Emily Program (formerly Veritas Collaborative) team in 2017, Joe held faculty positions in the medical schools at Duke University and the University of North Carolina (UNC). While at UNC, Joe was the Medical Director of the UNC Center of Excellence for Eating Disorders. In this role, he treated clients at the inpatient, partial hospitalization, and outpatient levels of care, as well as participated in research examining new treatment approaches for clients with eating disorders.

Joe is a passionate advocate for the care of clients with eating disorders, inspired by his experience working with clients in extreme physical and emotional distress and walking with them through recovery. He is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and is board-certified in General and Child & Adolescent Psychiatry.

Consistent with his training in psychiatry and psychology, Joe approaches his clients with a deep appreciation for the connection between mind and body and the scope of the mental and physical impacts of eating disorders. Joe understands that recovering from an eating disorder requires sustained, gradual effort through inevitable emotional and physical struggles. He believes that multidisciplinary treatment can help clients overcome their struggles by addressing disordered patterns of thoughts and feelings and reconnecting them to their deeply held values and goals.
