Treatment and Staff
Clear Horizons specializes in the care of clients struggling with a range of eating disorders including binge eating, compulsive exercise and emotional eating as well as mental illnesses like PTSD, generalized anxiety disorder and panic disorders. In addition, the facility offers counseling for prenatal and perinatal mental health as well as personal issues like self esteem and couple’s problems like infidelity. Before beginning treatment, clients undergo an initial comprehensive evaluation that helps the Clear Horizons team to determine the best possible treatment strategy customized to the specific needs of the individual, couple or family.
Length of treatment varies greatly from client to client. Factors such as severity, length of illness, motivation level, and treatment approach all impact treatment length and treatment outcome. Early on in treatment, you and your therapist will complete a treatment plan. During this process, you will discuss therapy goals, recommended services, and likely course of treatment.
A small counseling facility, Clear Horizons offers a personal touch that many larger facilities cannot. While the duration of care varies depending on the needs of the client, individuals are encouraged to speak openly about their goals for a plan.

More specifically, Clear Horizons uses CBT methods like cognitive restructuring to dispute cognitive distortions, exposure and response prevention for those with panic disorders and narrative exposure therapy for victims of trauma. For those with an eating disorder, Clear Horizons uses intuitive eating methods.
