Julie and Julie (often referred to as The Julies) began our work together locally in higher levels of care for eating disorders. We collectively developed a passion from this work to provide approachable, evidenced based outpatient treatment for families and individuals. Since 2016 we have served countless families and individuals suffering with eating disorders in the same office under different businesses. We are excited to be expanding our highly specialized staff in an effort to offer our services to more of our community.
In response to the exponential rise of eating disorders in the Richmond area and the overwhelming requests for care, in 2021, we realized we could help the community more under one business. This prompted our expansion into what is now Richmond Center for Eating Disorders (RCED). We intend to grow our center to offer more resources to the Richmond and surrounding areas.
