Balance Health & Healing is committed to providing specialized treatment for those struggling with eating disorders and associated concerns. As a private, specialized clinic, we have the ability to provide tailored services to those striving to find balance in all facets of their lives.

Balance Health & Healing strives to partner with those seeking peace, health and healing in their lives.

Balance Health & Healing recognizes that your concerns are unique and treatment must be tailored to your specific needs, concerns, and desires. Likewise, there are many aspects of eating concerns, and Balance Health & Healing provides specialized care for the unique concerns you may be facing, including body image concerns, subclinical eating concerns, anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge-eating disorder, avoidant/restrictive feeding intake disorder, body dysmorphia, unbalanced exercise, nutritional concerns, and eating concerns in sport.

In addition to providing specialized treatment for eating disorders, Balance Health & Healing provides comprehensive mental health treatment for a variety of presenting concerns, including depression, anxiety, relationship concerns, trauma, adoption issues, and spirituality concerns. We are passionate about helping individuals, couples, and families develop awareness about their needs, desires, and commitments, and to assist them in leading value-driven lives grounded in balance and health.
