A LETTER FROM CLEMENTINE PORTLAND’S CLINICAL DIRECTOR:
Welcome to the next step in your journey toward healing. I am honored to be the Clinical Director at Clementine, Portland and have the privilege of working with a dedicated group of professionals, adolescents and their families; dedicated individuals that challenge and amaze me each and every day.
I often say transitions and uncertainty are among the most difficult and unsettling processes an individual can endure. Since these are among the defining characteristics of the period of development known as adolescence, it makes sense that this time can be so difficult and overwhelming. I know how scary entering treatment can be, venturing into the unknown and taking a risk for yourself, your child or loved one, even when that risk promises the possibility of recovery. A part of you may feel hopeful, while another part, the eating disorder part, often feels resistant, beaten down or hopeless. My team and I are here to walk beside you as you develop new ways of living and relating to yourself and others. I have seen the promise of a recovered life countless times and know it is possible for each and every one of you. I look forward to being a part of your journey.
