Walden Eating Disorder Treatment Clinic in Waltham

Our spacious Waltham eating disorder clinic is a quiet and private office conveniently located off Route 95 about 20 minutes from downtown Boston. Offering one of the nation’s only eating disorder treatment programs designed especially for athletes, our compassionate team is dedicated to personalizing care to fit your unique needs. We welcome children, teens and adults of all genders to our day and evening programs and are minutes away from our inpatient and residential locations making transitions from one level of care to another as seamless as possible. We recognize that eating disorders thrive in isolation. That is why we do our best to engage family members and/or loved ones in your treatment as much as possible. In fact, Family-Based Treatment, the focal point of our teen program, is designed to give parents a leading role in helping their child to reduce disordered eating behaviors, restore weight and resume proper adolescent development. Our Waltham clinic also offers pet therapy and yoga to help strengthen your mind-body connection.

Bob Bordonaro, LICSW
Program Director

I am so glad that you’re taking the opportunity to get to know our clinic! Having been in the eating disorder field for more than 25 years, I understand how challenging the recovery process can be. While healing journeys are rarely alike, I am always inspired by brave individuals like yourself who confront their fears and embrace recovery. Our staff is passionate, dedicated and genuinely kind. They advocate and work tirelessly for you because they believe in you and want to see you succeed. If you are thinking of entering treatment, my advice is to trust the process and avoid making treatment decisions based on fear. Ask as many questions as you need and know that there is support available.

Kam Mendes, MA
Assistant Program Director
I love the Waltham clinic because of our robust ED treatment program offerings, our amazing team who is committed to helping one another ensure all those in our care feel as comfortable and motivated as possible. If you are wondering whether treatment is right for you, I would recommend coming in for an evaluation. There is no commitment to treatment; you will be able to speak to a clinician who understands your journey, have all of your important questions answered and meet the team who will be supporting you all along the way. I hope to see you soon.
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.
