Lea Noring, LMFT
Program Director
Welcome friends – I’m really happy that you’re interested in learning more about our clinic. One of the things I love most about working with individuals living with eating disorders is their potential. Potential is one of my favorite words and I am continually drawn to the potential of our clients gaining new wisdom and the potential for my own growth as well! The energy here in Alpharetta is positive and forward-focused and our team is very relationship-oriented. We make the effort to ensure that your experience with us is as helpful and accommodating as possible. For those who are contemplating whether or not they should get treatment, I would suggest taking that first step, no matter how uncomfortable it might make you feel. We have your best interest at heart and will listen carefully to what you are hoping to get out of treatment and answer any questions you might have. We care and will help you to find your way toward healing.
What We Offer
This program is ideal for teens who are medically stable but who require the structure and support of day treatment. Parents will take on a more active role at this level of care, learning – alongside your child – how to replace maladaptive behaviors with coping skills and how to deal with uncomfortable emotions in the moment.
Designed for teens in need of more structured support than their outpatient team can provide, this level of care utilizes Family-Based Treatment, an evidence-based intervention proven to support lasting recovery that is meant to equip you and your family with the skills necessary to best help your child.
This level of care is designed for individuals who require support during the day to optimize recovery success. You will experience a structured treatment environment focused on helping you to normalize eating patterns, target maladaptive coping behaviors and practice skills.
This program is designed for adults who need a bit more intensive support than their outpatient team can provide. This level of care focuses on providing you with the skills necessary to replace maladaptive coping behaviors and to provide you with the flexibility to also balance other priorities such as work, family and/or school.
Designed for adults living with binge eating disorder, this program is ideal for individuals who need a bit more intensive support than their outpatient team can offer. This level of care focuses on providing you with the skills necessary to replace maladaptive coping behaviors and provides you with the flexibility to also balance other priorities such as work, family and/or school.
