The Lotus CollaborativeThe Lotus Collaborative is a holistic health and recovery center specializing in eating, weight, exercise, and nutrition concerns including anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, orthorexia, and compulsive exercising. We provide partial hospitalization services, intensive outpatient services, eating disorder support groups, family therapy, nutritional counseling and transitional living. We serve teens (14+) and adults female, male and transgender from Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Jose and San Francisco and the greater Bay Area.
The Lotus Collaborative believes it’s important that we understand the unique individual you are: who you are, where you've been, what you’re struggling with, what your strengths are, and where you’d like to go from here. We believe in meeting people where they are at and that you don’t have to want to recover from an eating disorder in order to get help or seek treatment. The Lotus Collaborative (TLC) has a unique name that speaks to the unique treatment we offer.
At TLC we are aware that sexual orientation and gender identity are often key issues in the recovery process. We have culturally sensitive certified therapists on site to provide individual therapy, as well as local connections to engage clients with community resources. For a more indepth look into our treatment philosophy please visit our "What makes TLC unique?" page.
Dr. Elizabeth Esalen is the Founder and Director of The Lotus Collaborative. She has extensive experience and expertise in treating eating disorders. She founded TLC to answer the community need for a higher level of eating disorder care in Santa Cruz and San Francisco. Dr. Liz believes a crucial stage of healing from an eating disorder is learning how to practice recovery while living at home. TLC is designed specifically to integrate treatment and recovery into a client’s daily life and home or school environment.
