“Dr. Ireland was a huge help to us in dealing with my daughter’s anorexia. She was able to not only counsel my daughter but also got help for my entire family. We knew very little about eating disorders and even less on how to deal with one on a daily basis. Dr Ireland quickly got my family into family therapy which was so very helpful. I also think her team approach to this illness was very helpful to my daughter and to our family. She is most definitely an expert in this field and I am so grateful for all she did for my family and me.” – Janice from Delaware

“As a physician specializing in the care of individuals with an eating disorder, I have had the opportunity to work with Dr. Ireland for over 15 years. I have found Dr. Ireland to be a compassionate and determined therapist who is truly dedicated to the care of her clients. Dr. Ireland strongly supports the multidisciplinary approach to the care of clients with eating disorders working closely with dietitians, physicians and other therapists involved in the care of her clients. She requires that her clients, especially the younger adolescents, have family therapy and will recommend different therapists in her community for this care. She also maintains excellent communication with the team involved in the care of her clients. I can say that whenever a client came to see me who was under the care of Dr. Ireland for therapy I took comfort in knowing that the client would be receiving excellent individual therapy.” – Margot L. Waitz, D.O., Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine Specialist
