Carolyn Coker Ross, MD, MPH
I knew of Dr. Ross by her reputation at Sierra Tucson. Dr. Ross has brought that same level of creativity, wisdom and management ability to our Eating disorders program making The Ranch a leader in integrative eating disorders healing and recovery treatment. She is a brilliant clinician and a very cool human being.
Dr. Carolyn Ross has been instrumental in the development of the Eating Disorder Program at Integrative Life Center. Her experience and expertise in integrative models of treatment is extensive and her ongoing consultation with our treatment team provides sound medical guidance as well as creative approaches to clients with eating disorders, addictions and other trauma related conditions. Over the past five years, Dr. Ross has made herself available whenever we need her and we can count on her to provide the most cutting edge approaches to treatment in the field. A wealth of knowledge, without a doubt!
Integrative Life Center
Dr. Carolyn Ross is a pioneer in the use of Integrative medicine for the treatment of mental health issues and eating disorders. Her compassion and understanding bring hope to patients and family members whose lives are affected by these difficult problems by showing us that transformation and healing at the deepest level are possible.
Dr. Ross’ expertise goes well beyond eatings disorders – it’s really about addictions. Her insights into why people become addicted and why the “Just Say No” approach has been failing for decades is eye-opening. What was most interesting is her integrative approach that does work. Great presentation!
The Anchor program has changed my life. For once, there is a program that gets to the heart of helping you understand why you’re struggling and teaches you how to change your patterns you’ve spent a lifetime establishing. Previous diets feel superficial and I now see why they failed. The Anchor program helped me recognize my true self and for the first time in decades, i’m no longer ashamed of who I am.
I’ve never felt better while still losing weight. I feel like my issues with food are really being dealt with.
I love the holistic approach of the program. I am learning skills to deal with stress and not turning to food as much.
My struggle has always been to try to gain control of my eating without it relapsing into binge/purging habits. Something about this feels both forgiving and empowering, and for the first time EVER, it feels like my body “gets it”. I owe you more gratitude than I express.
Dr. Ross’s Program was so much more than I expected. It was gently revealing of the emotions behind the eating behaviors and gives tools to help overcome them. It is simple but not easy if you really commit to do the work. It can be scary at times to face long forgotten feelings. It is so worth it to become a whole person not controlled by weight and food.
Dr. Ross brings out the big guns targeting emotional blind spots with laser like insights- if you are ready to dig in fast she’s who you want to work with. Dr. Ross has a gift for leading guided meditations & simple food guidelines that you just can’t poke a hole in (though you’ll likely try with all of your might!). Less than a year later I’ve never felt so confident that I’m finally onto the lifetime solution, a true end to dieting & the weight is starting to come off for the first time in my life without contrived alterations in my food choices.
