Upon your initial appointment, you will meet one of our clinicians. He or she will complete a comprehensive psychiatric or psychosocial assessment so that your individual needs are acknowledged and incorporated into the treatment plan. The assessment may also include a recommendation that you seek medical follow up or laboratory testing to ensure your medical stability.
That clinician will then consult with other professionals within the clinic and may refer you to them to create a multi-disciplinary team of a psychiatrist/psychiatric nurse practitioner, therapist and dietitian. Your treatment plan will be the roadmap for your treatment process.

Art therapy Services
“Art therapy is a mental health profession in which clients, facilitated by the art therapist, use art media, the creative process, an the resulting artwork to explore their feelings, reconcile emotional conflict, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and additions, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety, and increase self-esteem.” (American Art Therapy Association, 2013.)
Art therapy groups offered at The REDI Clinic promote health and wellness through the creative process. Patients are able to safely explore their emotional experiences through therapeutic techniques that incorporate a variety of artistic processes ranging from painting and drawing to creative writing and poetry. The ultimate goal is to help provide patients’ access to their own self-expression as a tool in their recovery in order to encourage reflection, growth, and change.
Art therapy groups are offered weekly for the adolescent, young adult, and adult Intensive Outpatient Programs. Individual art therapy sessions are available to all outpatient patients upon request.
Helping you or your child learn how to eat healthy meals and snacks is essential to recovering from an eating disorder. The registered dietitians at The REDI Clinic in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, provide nutritional services that establish normal and healthful eating patterns.
Beginning with a nutritional evaluation, one of our dietitians works with you or your child for the services you require. Outpatient treatment may include psychiatric services, as well as nutritional counseling and meal plans.
