Our Founder and Our History:
She is a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals as well as a Certified Equine-Assisted Psychotherapist. Dr. Brogdon has a deep concern for those who struggle with Eating Disorders and is a gift to all who visit Canopy Cove.
As a certified diabetes educator, Dr. Brogdon specialized in providing treatment to those dealing with diabetes. She served as a psychological consultant for the Diabetes Center at Tallahassee Memorial Regional Medical Center. She was also instrumental in developing the psychosocial program utilized by both the inpatient and outpatient units at Tallahassee Memorial.
Shortly after opening her private practice, individuals struggling with eating disorders began to present for treatment. Recognizing the need for specialized treatment for this group of people was easy to assess, yet, after an extensive search, she was unable to locate a high-quality program to whom referrals could be made. Therefore, Dr. Brogdon began a pursuit of knowledge that could be useful in helping those with Anorexia, Bulimia, and Binge Eating Disorders. Becoming certified as an Eating Disorder Specialist through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals, and joining associations committed to helping those struggling with these disorders, became the foundation of her new focus.
Recognizing the increasing need for greater levels of care, Dr. Brogdon established Canopy Cove Eating Disorder Treatment Center in 1990 and expanded treatment to include residential treatment, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient. She has a deep understanding of Eating Disorders and the complexities of treating co-existing dual diagnosis.
