Staff Spotlight, Lacey Fischer

Tell us about yourself!

Hello! My name is Lacey Fischer, I am a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) at the Anna Westin House in St. Paul, Minnesota. 

I’ve been a nurse since 2004 and previously worked in a clinical family practice in a small rural town alongside one of the area’s busiest and most well-known providers until his retirement. (Fun fact: the doctor I worked with delivered me when I was born! I always joked, “Well, somebody had to grow up and be your boss!” He loved telling that story as much as I did. We are still good friends to this day.)

Introducing CARE IOP, Intensive Treatment for Binge Eating

Most people don’t realize that binge eating disorder (BED) is the most common eating disorder. In fact, BED is three times more prevalent in the U.S. than anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa combined. And in addition to the millions of Americans diagnosed with BED, many more are living with a pattern of binge eating or compulsive overeating, conditions often diagnosed as Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorders (OSFED).

Despite the prevalence of binge eating disorder and OSFED with a pattern of binge eating, few treatment options are specifically designed to address the unique needs of those affected. Treatment has traditionally been offered in mixed-diagnosis settings that serve people with all types of eating disorders. While these programs do provide an opportunity for intervention and growth, individuals with BED or OSFED with a pattern of binge eating often report feeling unseen, unheard, or misunderstood.

To address this reality, The Emily Program has introduced CARE IOP, a virtual intensive outpatient program specifically for people with binge eating disorder or OSFED with a pattern of binge eating. This stand-alone program is designed to address the unique needs of those struggling with these conditions and honor their diverse and intersectional experiences.

Staff Spotlight, Sam Green

Tell us about yourself!

Hello! My name is Sam. I am a phone intake therapist at The Emily Program. I am licensed as a clinical independent social worker and have been with The Emily Program for two years. I work remotely with clients seeking eating disorder care over the phone. I have worked in many different types of settings in my short career and have loved the experience the variety has provided me! My husband and I have a super cool pooch named Kevin. He is a French bulldog/miniature Australian shepherd mix who is stubborn, smart, and dapper. When I am not working, I enjoy hiking, riding my bike, reading, watching movies and documentaries, playing video games, and photography.
