About Sharon Chirban

Dr. Chirban has a specialization in treating clinical eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, BED) and partners with treatment facilities to build recovery programs that allow her patients to confront self-sabotaging behaviors that impede having a good and wholesome life.

Many of her patients are elite and high level athletes and dancers, who seek her out for her specific dual specialization of treating eating disorders in this very unique population.

Sharon values the role of activity in the life of an athlete and performer and ensures that her patients and athletes include activity as part of their recovery process when medical and weight stability is in place.
