Research in the field of eating disorders is advancing quickly. However, there is a great deal of misinformation out there. I am committed to sharing accurate and current information about eating disorders to help others.
As a clinical psychologist, Lauren Muhlheim, PsyD, FAED, CEDS-S specializes in providing evidence-based cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy for a variety of problems experienced by adults and adolescents, including depression, anxiety, stress, and eating disorders. She is licensed in New York and California and provides teletherapy in both states as well as in person therapy at Eating Disorder Therapy LA, the group practice she directs in Los Angeles.
