Eating disorder recovery work is a specialized aspect of mental health treatment.
Working with adolescents is a specialty unto itself.
Working with young children is yet another specialty.
Joanna Poppink prefers to focus on one population, adult women, within her specialty in order to provide the best treatment possible.
There are mental health clinicians who specialize in eating disorder treatment with young children and/or adolescents. Joanna maintains a working relationship with many professional eating disorder organizations, both national and local. Through these relationships she can offer referrals for parents looking for treatment for their children.
