MADISON, Wisconsin (July 13, 2023), Inner Haven Wellness, an eating disorder treatment program, is pleased to announce the addition of Dena Cabrera, Psy.D., CEDS, as Lead Psychologist.  In this role, she will provide Inner Haven Wellness treatment teams with industry leading training and development in the treatment of eating disorders and co-occurring disorders.

“My goal is to help clients find healing, meaning and purpose in their lives. I’m honored to walk alongside the Inner Haven Wellness team as they support clients in their recovery journey,” said Dr. Cabrera.

Dr. Cabrera is a nationally recognized leader in the eating disorder treatment field and brings twenty-four years of experience treating eating disorders and co-occurring conditions. She has led treatment teams at every level of care for eating disorders— inpatient, residential, day treatment, intensive outpatient, and virtual programming.

She is also an advisory board member of Rock Recovery and a board member of the Eating Disorder Coalition.

Apart from her contributions to the field, Dr. Cabrera is a distinguished author and presenter. She co-authored the book, Mom in the Mirror: Body Image, Beauty, and Life after Pregnancy, the first resource of its kind that compassionately, and through personal experience, addresses healing from body-image disturbances and eating disorders for mothers. Cabrera is a sought-after presenter for colleges, conferences, for-profit and nonprofit organizations, and has been a featured expert on numerous national and local news and talk shows.
