The Auburn Eating Disorders Clinic, or AEDC, is a training clinic housed within the Auburn University Psychological Services Center that provides high-quality, low-cost, evidence-based assessments and treatment to individuals struggling with eating disorders, disordered eating and/or body image concerns. Co-directors Drs. Tiffany Brown and April Smith provide empirically-supported treatments for children, adolescents, young adults and adults in Alabama for a variety of eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, purging disorder, avoidant restrictive food intake disorder, and other specified feeding and eating disorders.
We are committed to providing care that is responsive to clients from diverse backgrounds. Our clinicians and faculty complete cultural competency training, and many have participated in additional training on treating LGBTQ+ and male-identified clients. We also value size inclusivity and understand that eating disorders can occur in all types of body sizes. While we may not have the same lived experiences as our clients, it is our intention to create a safe environment for individuals with a variety of intersecting identities.
