Walden Clinic in Braintree

Our Braintree clinic is located in the heart of the south shore and is easily accessible for individuals living in the greater Boston and south shore areas via car or the red line. Our warm and inclusive space has recently been renovated and expanded to better accommodate the growing need for specialized eating disorder services. We are dedicated to treating children, teens and adults of all genders and their families and practice therapies that have been proven to support lasting recovery. Family-Based Treatment, which is used with the children and teenagers in our care, gives parents and/or caretakers an active and positive role in helping their child to reduce eating disorder behaviors, stabilize weight and resume proper adolescent development. We also encourage the involvement of family and loved ones in the treatment of adults in our care. We understand that eating disorders thrive in isolation so we do our best to ensure that you have a strong support system throughout your treatment journey. Our compassionate care team looks forward to meeting you and helping you to meet your recovery goals.

Walden Behavioral Care is contracted with most major insurance companies. Learn more today.

Kimberly Wick, LMHC
Program Director
I have been in the mental health field for more than 15 years. Prior to joining the Walden team in 2014, I had worked a lot with trauma survivors and noticed a remarkable amount of people who also had an eating disorder. I was fascinated by this correlation and the complexities of trying to treat both an eating disorder and trauma at the same time. At the Braintree clinic, we are passionate and committed to supporting you on your healing journey and emphasize collaboration and mutual appreciation. If you are wondering whether treatment is for you, my advice would be to take that first step. Give us a call and know that waiting on the other side of the phone, is an empathic and experienced team who want to help you.
Shannon Stern, LMHC
Assistant Program Director
My favorite part of working at Walden is having the opportunity to contribute to the emotional, psychological and physical well-being of so many deserving individuals. Being part of such a bright, warm and passionate team care professionals keeps me invigorated and fulfilled. If you are thinking about treatment, my advice would be to come meet us and ask as many questions as you need! We understand that it can feel uncomfortable taking a blind leap into change, so we are happy to talk to prospective clients about our unique philosophy and evidence-based treatment options.
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 program is for children ages 8-11 and their parents and meets three days a week, with structured and activity-based individual, family and group therapy. Family-Based Treatment (FBT) is the focal point of our pediatric treatment program.
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.

Walden on Gratitude

This year marks Walden Behavioral Care’s 15th Anniversary. Our staff came together to reflect on what makes working at Walden, and with you, so special.

The most helpful part of my experience at Walden was: all the staff’s support. I truly felt they cared and were invested in helping me make progress in my recovery.
I am leaving Walden with a happy heart and hope for the future; the second part of my journey has begun.

I appreciated having someone to listen to me because at home I feel and fear that no one is willing to listen to any concerns, anxieties, and apprehensions.
Because of the love and support from Walden, I am now starting to believe for myself that life can be better.
