Tony Paulson, PhD, Psychologist in Sacramento
The path to your recovery can be steep and full of obstacles. You might feel like you can't take another step or the obstacles are too large. I can assure you that you will not walk this path alone. You will be given guidance, comfort and motivation to keep you moving toward recovery. In the 20 years I have treated people suffering from eating disorders I have witnessed many reclaim their lives from ED and live the life they were meant to have. Don't let another day go by trapped by your eating disorder.
The services I offer are tailored to your specific needs. You receive specialized treatment while continuing with your day-to-day activities including work or school. In addition, I offer families a variety of services including education classes, support groups, and supervised family meals.
I co-authored "Why She Feels Fat: Understanding Your Loved One's Eating Disorder and How You Can Help" to help families understand their loved one's eating disorder and how they can help. I am also certified in Family Based Treatment (see Most insurances accepted.
