Treating adults and teens ages 16 and over, we intentionally keep our group size small in order to ensure the most intensive support possible, addressing all eating disorders from a non-diet, evidence based and trauma-informed approach.

"My time at Willa truly changed & saved my life. Entering a treatment program brings up many different emotions and the team at Willa did an incredible job making me feel as comfortable and supported as possible. They did not shy away from questions I would ask along the way and they ensured I felt like an active part in my own recovery. This made me feel so empowered. I knew I was in a safe space to share what I was going through and work through what came up for me. The space is so beautiful and comfortable which made the time spent there a bit easier, as well. The Willa team advocated and cared for me as a whole individual. They were not only focused on what brought me through the door. I cannot thank the team at Willa enough for what their program has given me: more life & more freedom."

Our Levels of Care

Day Treatment
(Partial Hospitalization Program - PHP)

Comprehensive individual care and group therapy 5 days per week, Monday-Friday from 8:30am - 3:30pm. PHP is considered a step-down from the residential level of care, while still offering a highly structured, individualized therapeutic environment where clients are able to practice their coping skills & recovery strategies at home in between program hours.

Each day consists of evidence-based psychoeducational and process groups, while offering various somatic & mind-body therapy and skills-based groups. 

Clients are seen weekly by their Primary Therapist, Registered Dietitian, Psychiatrist and Program Physician.

Meal support is an integral part of treatment, offered during 2 meals and 1 snack each day, followed by evening and weekend meal planning.

Intensive Outpatient Program

Designed to be a continuation of care after completion of PHP, our IOP consists of 4 hours of treatment 3-5 days per week, Monday-Friday.

Clients have the opportunity to choose our morning IOP from 8:30am-12:00pm, or afternoon IOP from 11:45am-3:30pm.

Clients are supported through 1-2 meals & 1 snack daily and will participate in the same programming as PHP clients, including evidence-based psychoeducational groups, process groups, as well as various somatic & mind-body therapy and skills-based groups. 

Clients will continue to see their Primary Therapist, Registered Dietitian and Registered Nurse weekly, as well as receive ongoing psychiatric care and medical oversight as needed.
