Specializing in the treatment of eating disorders, anxiety and mood disorders, and trauma

Meet Dr. Fassihi

For much of my 20-year career, I have been working as an eating disorders specialist.  It is important to understand that eating disorders are not just about the food, so an eating disorders specialist must understand a variety of related and underlying issues, including trauma, depression, anxiety, and relationship difficulties.

 

Many people with eating disorders have a history of traumatic experiences, but I also believe that the eating disorder is itself a traumatic experience that disrupts lives.  People with eating disorders are often very accomplished because they are so hard-working and caring, but I always find myself wondering, what more could their life hold for them in recovery? How much more could they enjoy their accomplishments and their lives?

Recovery takes time. The first step is assessment of what level of care and resources are needed.  The good news is that with your hard work and the support you deserve, you can recover.

What I treat

eating disorders

It is extremely difficult to break free from an eating disorder.  Support from a multidisciplinary team and the important people in your life can sustain you on the journey to recovery.  

anxiety/mood disorders

Most people with eating disorders also experience anxiety and/or depression.  The eating disorder is often a way of coping with overwhelming emotions.

Trauma

In order to effectively treat trauma, it is essential for a therapist to work on self-knowledge, mindfulness and compassion for self and others.

Let us help you get on the path to recovery.
