Cathy's policy has been mainly to see eating disorder clients only if they have not been exhibiting current, active eating disorder behaviors, or, have done so long in the past and have had some form of treatment or therapy since then that they feel they, or preferably their therapist, doctor, etc. feel they were successful with. Cathy keeps an observant eye out for signs of additional help needed.
