She began her work there as a clinician, establishing a music therapy program as well as leading other therapeutic groups with a focus in Radically Open Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. Her experience at ERC has fostered a passion for milieu-based care in the treatment of eating disorders, and her tenure has allowed her opportunity to shape the patient experience from the day of admission to discharge. Kathryn transitioned into the practice coordinator role in February of 2021, where she continues to support the program from an operations perspective.
