Melissa works with anyone experiencing an eating disorder or disordered eating. This includes children, youth and adults who are experiencing Anorexia Nervosa (AN), Bulimia Nervosa (BN), Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID), and Other Specified Feeding or Eating Syndrome (OSFED). 

Melissa combines Family-Based Therapy (Maudsley approach) and Emotion-Focused Family Therapy to effectively restore weight , thus preventing the dangers of malnutrition.  Family Based Therapy has proven to be an effective model to prevent hospitalisation for youth with both anorexia and bulimia by assisting the parents in their efforts to help their child in recovery from an eating disorder. 

Once nutrition has been restored, Melissa will then support the individual and/or family in addressing other challenges - relationships, transitions, overcoming trauma, managing big emotions, and becoming an independent young person.

Adult services will be tailored to the needs of the individual.  Loved ones are always welcome in sessions.
