National Staff Recruited For Oliver-Pyatt Center

Program at 6150 SW 76th Street, South Miami, FL will begin accepting clients in June.

Drawing on her past experience as a founder of innovative and well-respected treatment programs, Dr. Wendy Oliver-Pyatt, MD, Founder, Executive Director and board certified psychiatrist, has just concluded a nationwide search for top level staff for her Miami center: “A strong multi-disciplinary team is critical to the level of care we are providing-- up to 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. We’ve brought together clinicians with deep experience, thorough training and a shared philosophy—the fundamental belief that compassionate care which addresses the core issues driving the eating disorder can lead to full recovery.”

Clinical Director: Karen Trevithick, PsyD is relocating from Chicago, where for the past 7 years she has been the coordinator of the partial hospitalization program for the treatment of eating disorders at Alexian Brothers. Karen delivered a lecture on “Creating Connectedness--working with Complex Eating Disorder Patients" at IADEP this year.

Assistant Clinical Director: Melissa McLain, PhD, is relocating from California, where she served as the Eating Disorder Program Coordinator at Counseling and Psychological Services at UC Davis. Melissa presented a poster at the Renfrew Conference, and has conducted research on eating disorder prevention, and self-care in clinicians.

Dr. Rosina Pellerano, MD, will coordinate medical care for our clients. Rosina trained in Adolescent Medicine, and is an expert in the medical management of eating disorders. She has a Miami-based medical practice dedicated to the treatment of eating disorders.

The Oliver-Pyatt Center of Miami will accept a maximum of eight clients in each program. Overnight accommodations for out of town clients will be available through a nearby condominium association.
