Hi everyone! Have you ever felt like you are suffering alone in your eating disorder in San Diego, and you don’t know where to turn? One great resource is private practice eating disorder therapist Edie Stark, LCSW (Licensed Social Worker). Her office is in Bankers Hill, which is in central San Diego. Edie is an amazing, authentic, experienced eating disorder therapist—plus she’s also a good friend of mine, and I want you all to get to know how smart and wonderful she is! Given her central location, she works with a lot of college students who attend universities like San Diego State (SDSU), University of San Diego (USD), and Point Loma Nazarene University. She even works with students from University of California Los Angeles (UCLA). PLUS, she’s originally from New York and is a LCSW in that state, so she can provide virtual therapy (a.k.a. Telehealth) in the entire states of California and New York. All in all, an excellent eating disorder resource in San Diego and elsewhere!
