Malibu Lake | CA

Clementine Malibu Lake, located in the Santa Monica Mountains in Agoura Hills, is a residential treatment program exclusively for adolescent girls between the ages of 12 to 17 seeking treatment for Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, or Exercise Addiction. Clementine Malibu Lake, similar to our other Clementine programs, provides the highest level of medical and psychiatric care outside of a hospital. Treatment is integrated with personalized clinical and nutritional care and comprehensive academic and family support. Adolescents from the region and through California will benefit from the care they need closer to home.


At Clementine, our goal is to help make treatment accessible and we are committed to working with families to access care. Clementine Malibu Lake is in network with Cigna, MHN and at times can secure single case agreements with your insurance provider. Please see our Financial Considerations page for more information.



I understand that making the decision to come to treatment can feel overwhelming; the uncertainty of what it will be like, the fear of making changes that may initially feel uncomfortable.  Odds are, things in your life right now are already feeling a little overwhelming and you may be looking for a different path.  At Clementine you will travel this path in a safe and holding space – a place free of judgement and filled with care and strength.

Taking this journey to discover and nurture your healthy self will take courage, hope and some patience.  These are skills that you already have within you, even in the times that you may not feel it there.  I want you to know that you don’t have to be alone in this journey.  My team and I are here to stand alongside you as we walk through this together.  We are here to listen, to guide you in reconnecting with your healthy self and to hold hope in the moments when you think that you cannot.  I believe in your ability to recover, to embrace your truth and to live your best life; and I am here to travel the path with you.
