When you or a loved one is struggling with disordered eating, it is difficult to know where to start in finding the support that will be most helpful. Understanding how challenging eating disorder treatment can be to navigate, Bucks ESC offers consultations that allow for unbiased recommendations for what your next best step would be! Consultations are helpful for those struggling with eating issues, exercise concerns, or body image concerns. Clients can be self-referred, or a client may be referred for consultation services by their current therapist, medical doctor, dietician, or any other member of the client’s support system.
Rachael McLaughlin, a Licensed Professional Therapist, completed her graduate training at a prominent eating disorder treatment facility, where she continued working at professionally prior to joining Bucks ESC in 2015. Having experience at all levels of care and in various roles, Rachael is committed to providing clients with clear and supportive recommendations regarding best-fits for treatment, including outpatient options in the area as well as treatment facilities both local and out-of-state. Rachael and Bucks ESC have wonderful working relationships with many treatment facilities, allowing for recommendations to be catered specifically to each client.
Consultations are two hours in length, allowing clients the time and space to share what they have been struggling with and what their goals are for the short and long term. The latter portion of the consultation will focus on recommendations, and a clinical summary can be provided if needed. There are also options for continued consultation services, as clients may want additional time to process what feels the most comfortable for them.
