The CAPS Eating Disorder Team is comprised of clinicians with experience and interest in the complexities of eating disorders. Our team is multidisciplinary to provide evidence-based care for our students. Since eating disorders have serious medical complications, we coordinate care closely with medical providers and dieticians at UCLA Ashe Center or with outside treatment providers. For students who require more intensive or long-term eating disorder treatment, we help students connect to treatment in Los Angeles or near their homes. We welcome parent and family involvement in treatment planning as appropriate.

Like the UCLA student body, CAPS staff members are highly diverse and open-minded, and also include several LGBTQ-identified therapists. All of our licensed therapists have completed specialized training in sexual orientation and gender identity concerns. We are committed to providing compassionate and high-quality LGBTQ-affirmative services.
