New Eating Disorder Clinic Opens in Stevensville

Treating Women with Eating Disorders

Southwestern Medical Clinic Counseling recently opened a new satellite location focused primarily on diagnosing and treating women with eating disorders. Southwestern Nutritional Wellness, located within Well of Grace Ministries at 5707 Red Arrow Highway in Stevensville, offers clients individual therapy sessions as well as access to a registered dietitian and healthcare providers, all of whom have advanced training in treating eating disorders. Clients participate in psychoeducational and group therapy, as well as learn about appropriate nutrition,hands-on preparation of meals, and meal planning.

“We are pleased to open a new satellite location focused primarily on treating eating disorders as it serves to meet a critical mental health need in our community,” said Marcia Wiinamaki, PsyD, Director of Southwestern Medical Clinic Counseling. “Prior to this, clients had limited local resources or access to a comprehensive outpatient treatment program for eating disorders.”
