Practice Philosophy



learn more about our services

We dive in to understand each person’s story and how their eating disorder came to be and is impacting their lives. Our practice functions from a Health at Every Size (R) lens.

We are just one member on the team and work in conjunction with your therapist, dietitian, primary care doctor, and other clinicians.

We are advocates for sufferers of eating disorders and their loved ones and raise the level of awareness and understanding within the medical community and others about eating disorders. 


Dr. Tyson has specialized in the assessment and treatment of eating disorders for over 30 years. While his primary passion is treating those with eating disorders, he also enjoys teaching about and advocating for those with eating disorders.
