Michelle was struggling emotionally when her issues with food began. Just 10 years old, her twin sister was battling cancer. Michelle felt like she couldn't control anything, except her caloric intake. When she was 14, the Hartford-area girl lost an alarming amount of weight, dropping to 96 pounds.

"I was in the car with my mom and I said, 'Oh I feel so fat right now,'" she remembers. "That was the turning point."

Diagnosed with anorexia nervosa, she turned to Walden Behavioral Care, which recently opened a clinic in Guilford, to serve a new population of people with eating disorders — including adolescents who need help along with their parents.

Walden Behavioral Care has earned the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval.
Accredited by the Joint Commission 2019
