-Jean Sullivan RDN, LD, Vital Food Therapy

As a Psychotherapist specializing in Eating Disorders, a vital component of my practice is cultivating relationships with ancillary providers. I have collaborated with Merrit on several cases, on various treatment teams. I can vehemently say those patients have showed markedly advanced improvement and introspection - no doubt as a result of Merrit’s unwavering attention to detail, support, compassion, and insight. On a personal note, Merrit is a veritable Angel - affable, thoughtful, considerate, and always looking out for the best interest of others. She is an absolute pleasure to work with - highly thorough, reflective, astute, warm, and patient. She is the icing on the cake to any treatment team!!

"Merrit is THE quintessential addition to an outpatient treatment team I never knew I needed!"
