At Esperanza Eating Disorders Center, our goal is to provide a supportive, empowering environment for eating disorder recovery.  Our team of experienced multidisciplinary clinicians utilize evidence-based treatment approaches to provide individuals with a wide range of skills and healthy coping behaviors to guide them to a life of fulfilling recovery. 

Our cornerstone philosophy is Recovery by Doing. Patients do not just hear about what to do, they get hands-on experience doing recovery. Integrative therapies as well as grocery shopping, cooking and plating their own meals and activities like restaurant outings are all part of our hands-on approach to healing.  

We look forward to doing recovery with families and professionals in the South Texas community.

With Shared Hope, 

Susan C. Mengden, PhD
