The Hull Institute is a private practice in Northeast Ohio specializing in the treatment of eating disorders and other addictions. Eating disorders are horrible brain disorders. As anyone with anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder or something else knows, eating disorders are extremely difficult to treat. We have never seen a client that has “only” an eating disorder. We see women and men, LGBTQ, teens and adults of all ages who also have anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD and addictions. It’s bad enough to have just one of these, and many of our clients have several. That is why most people with eating disorders need care from a team of professionals who specialize in eating disorders treatment. The team at The Hull Institute offers that!

In 2016 we purchased New Beginnings Eating Disorders Center and we have incorporated it into The Hull Institute. For a variety of reasons, mostly the current insurance environment, we no longer offer an IOP. Instead, we offer individualized treatment plans that can be very intensive and include individual therapy, family and marriage therapy, nutrition counseling, art therapy, intensive workshops, support groups, working with other providers and doctors and information and referral when necessary.



When I began this practice nearly 14 years ago, I dreamed of having an office in a house. Yes, we are still in 2 office buildings and a church and we love them, AND my dream has come true. We are moving our Fairlawn office from 3610 West Market Street to


The house is just east of Cleveland-Massillon Road, on the south side of Ridgewood. We are located between the Rehab facility and the realtor, about 2 miles from our current location. The house is white with green shutters.

Please check back for information about an open house later this year. We welcome new and current clients and visitors to this and all our facilities.
