Joanna Imse, LICSW, CEDS
Program Director
I joined the Walden family in 2011 and continue to be inspired by every brave person who commits to the hard work that is recovery. The healing tree which is painted on the wall of our waiting room, is a reminder to all that our environment is safe and recovery-focused. We offer a separate adult binge eating disorder program, which can help you feel more comfortable and connected to your fellow group members. If you’re thinking about coming to treatment, my advice would be to take that first step. Make the call, come in and meet our staff, try one day of treatment. Give recovery and us a chance – we look forward to meeting you.

Program Director
Guiding people in reaching their full potential is one of my passions. That is why the mental health field has been so fascinating for me. The team here in Milford is wonderful. We not only support those in our care, but we support each other and do so with a smile. We are dedicated to your recovery and preparing you for your fulfilling life outside of treatment. If you are wondering whether treatment is for you, I would think about all of the reasons you want to get better. Eating disorders can take a lot of important things away from you and treatment can help you get those things back. Remember, we are here for you!
What We Offer
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.
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.
Sophie, age 20
93% of clients said they would recommend Walden to a friend or family member in need
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.
Mike, age 59
87% of clients said their eating disorder has moved further into recovery since they started at Walden
