FEEDBACK I’VE RECEIVED

Dr. Julie Trim knows  how to work with "Ed" (the eating disorder). And she knows what can tag along with Ed, too— anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, and perfectionism. I highly recommend Dr. Trim. She is compassionate, validating, and, plain and simple, she 'gets it.'"

From Clients

"I could never have gotten here without Julie's help and guidance. She is an amazing therapist and human in every aspect. She opens her heart and truly invests herself into every one of her clients. She was the exact ray of light I needed to move towards recovery. Thank you for all the smiles and laughter!"  -K.C.

"Even when things feel almost impossible...I am grateful for the 'almost' because that is new. Through my work with Julie, I have been able to face fears that I NEVER thought I could. I don't always know how these things can be happening, how much has shifted. But I do know who helped me make these changes. What she does is stunning. Treating clients with PTSD and eating disorders must be painful and frustrating and exhausting. I don't know how she does it."    - K.M. 

"Julie is so special to me. I never thought I would get here. I came to her suicidal, with no control over my eating disorder behaviors, hating myself and my life and my body. There is so much to say, so many thing to praise her for, so many moments I will cherish. She is amazing, there is no one like her. She is my hero."    - B.A. 

From Parents

"My daughter has been spiraling down  for 8 long years. Between her Bipolar disorder, eating disorder, and substance abuse, she was in  crisis for a long time and has been through all kinds of treatments and medications.

Julie basically saved her, and us as a family.
It is not simple. Never is. There are challenges all the time. But its almost a miracle. 
I thank her for giving our daughter the tools to survive and live again." - A.A.

"Eight years ago, I was brought into the world of eating disorders when my adolescent daughter was diagnosed with anorexia. Shortly thereafter, I found myself caring for an adult who had been struggling with an ED almost her entire life. Throughout these years, my role as a carer and advocate introduced me to countless professionals who claimed to understand eating disorders and how to help their patients recover. Some were skilled, many were not, and a very few were exceptional in their knowledge of how to treat eating disorders. 

Julie is one of those rare exceptions. When I was working with her under the treatment of the adult sufferer, I was able to trust her to lead us through what felt like impossible obstacles. Her depth of understanding and ability to apply and teach the highly regarded DBT skills was comforting and encouraging. Her patience, persistence and creativity were truly amazing. Her ability to gain the trust and respect of the patient while challenging the ED behaviors was also remarkable.

 

Thankfully because of Julie's expertise and patience, this woman has finally broken through and is in remarkable recovery"  -A.E. 

From Colleagues

"Julie was responsible for starting, and then directing the adult eating disorders treatment program at UCSD for more than 10 years. Consequently, she has deep experience and expertise in providing evidence-based treatment for eating disorders.  Most importantly, she has wonderful social skills, and provides a warm, empathetic, and safe environment for clients to work on their problems."
