Edelweiss Behavioral Health LLC



Our goal at Edelweiss Behavioral Health is to provide specialized treatment to individuals struggling with eating disorders and obsessive compulsive disorders. Our experienced staff works collaboratively with each client and their support system to provide patient-centered, individualized support to encourage and promote recovery. 

Edelweiss Behavioral Health offers an intensive, but intermediate, level of care (Intensive Outpatient or IOP) that helps individuals to transition from either a higher level of care back to their homes or up a level of care to more specifically meet their needs, with extra support that is needed during that time. In addition, we have therapists and dietitians who work with individuals in an outpatient setting, as well as Physician’s Assistants who can provide medication evaluation and management.

We work directly with clients and families to recommend the appropriate level of care a client needs and will work with individuals in both Outpatient and Intensive Outpatient settings, supporting them in those needs and on their road to recovery.

All Edelweiss Psychotherapists are LGBTQIA+ friendly and welcoming. We welcome clients of any culture, race, gender, lifestyle, profession, sexual orientation, size, ethnicity, religion, nationality, and ability.

We value diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and support efforts made towards social justice reform.
