Having practiced for over 25 years, Dr. Jirik-Babb works primarily with patients striving to overcome obesity, binge eating disorder and weight management problems as well as patients suffering from anorexia and bulimia.

The rate of obesity has increased dramatically over the last century and is now considered a public health problem. The eating disorders of anorexia and bulimia have also increased significantly over the last several decades. There are numerous factors that have contributed to these growing rates.

Dr. Jirik-Babb provides a comprehensive approach for dealing with these problems and develops an individualized treatment plan for each patient.  She primarily uses a cognitive-behavioral approach since most research studies have indicated that cognitive-behavioral therapy is the most effective for these types of problems. Because eating disorders can affect aspects of physical health, Dr. Jirik-Babb works with patients’ primary-care physicians when appropriate. She works with patients of all ages (children, adolescents, adults) and provides services in a quiet, comfortable setting.
