Welcome to the Delta Clinic
Treatment for Eating, Feeding, and Weight Disorders
The goal of our clinic is to provide gold-standard, empirically-based treatment for eating, feeding and weight disorders to patients on a sliding scale, so that everyone can afford high quality treatment. We also believe in treating any additional concerns such as depression, anxiety disorders, emotion dysregulation or other concerns that might contribute to problematic eating behaviors. We'll work with you to identify a customized plan of action that can meet your specific needs and help you broadly improve your eating behaviors and quality of life.
Our outpatient treatment program is designed for individuals who suffer from eating, feeding or weight disorders and are medically stable for outpatient treatment. We see individuals who are struggling with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder, pica, rumination and weight management. Patients may have a variety of concerns that they seek treatment for, including:
- Food restriction: issues with restricting food intake, including strict rules about eating and fears about certain foods
- Binge eating: feeling out of control while eating and distressed about eating too much at one time
- Purging: making oneself vomit, abuse laxatives or diuretics, or using exercise to compensate for eating
- Excessive exercise: feeling compelled to exercise. Exercise gets in the way of one’s life, such as friendships and family. Have medical issues because of the exercise
- Body image concerns: intense worry about the way one looks or one’s body weight
- Rumination: struggling with food coming back up into the mouth repeatedly and then re-chewing, re-swallowing or spitting out the food (please note that this is different from esophageal reflux and other gastrointestinal conditions, which can be verified by physical examination or other testing)
- Pica: feeling compelled or having urges to eat non-nutritive, non-food substances, such as paper, cloth or dirt
- Weight management: struggling to lose or maintain weight
We also work with individuals who have recently stepped down from treatment in local residential treatment programs, partial hospitalization programs (PHP) and intensive outpatient programs (IOP). We work directly with adult, adolescent and child clients and also work with families to provide skills training and coaching for loved ones of child and adolescent patients. Our team is also available to provide individual skills coaching designed to improve the ability to manage emotions.
We offer psychological evaluations for individuals in the pre-operative assessment process for bariatric surgery. These evaluations are conducted by one of our mental health professionals at the DELTA Clinic to determine whether bariatric surgery is an appropriate treatment. Assessment includes psychiatric history, current psychological function, weight and dieting history, current eating behaviors and physical activity.
