Personal Biography

Sarah Eckhardt, PhD, is a licensed psychologist at Children’s MN Center for the Treatment of Eating Disorders (CTED). Her interest in eating disorders first began as a pediatric psychology fellow at the Children's Hospital of Orange County, where she provided therapy and Consultation/Liaison services for children with a wide variety of chronic medical issues. She later went on to complete a specialized postdoctoral fellowship in eating disorders at the University of California San Diego's Eating Disorders Center for Treatment and Research/Rady Children's Hospital, where she trained in family-based treatment and inpatient medical stabilization for eating disorders. Dr. Eckhardt is a 2011 graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's Doctoral Program in Counseling Psychology, and works in both research and clinical care at CTED. Her clinical interests include developing new and innovative treatments for Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID), and the treatment of eating disorders using family-based treatment (FBT) and cognitive behavioral therapy-enhanced (CBT-E). She is also certified in both family-based treatment and the Unified Protocols for the Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders and Children and Adolescents.
