Dr. Michelle Mannia
I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist with a commitment to providing compassionate, competent, and ethical care in South Bend, Indiana. I am passionate about the prevention and treatment of eating disorders and have a wide range of experiences that enable me to provide expert care. I am also certified as an eating disorder specialist by the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals.
Prior to starting a private practice in South Bend, I worked for several years at a comprehensive eating disorder center where I ran an Intensive Outpatient Program, developed and led groups for a Partial Hospitalization Program, and conducted outpatient individual therapy and groups for patients with a variety of eating disorders. I am an active member and president of the Eating Disorder Task Force of Indiana. I have also taught undergraduate and graduate courses in the treatment of eating disorders, lifespan development, and abnormal psychology for several years and am currently adjunct faculty at the University of Indianapolis.
I attended college at Indiana University in Bloomington and graduated with honors, receiving a bachelor’s degree in psychology and sociology. I earned my master’s degree and psychology doctorate degree (PsyD) from the University of Indianapolis where I specialized in health psychology. My dissertation focused on the factors that allow people to make lasting and meaningful changes, which has been helpful as I work with clients to undergoing transitional periods in their lives. I completed an American Psychological Association (APA) approved internship at the University of Wisconsin where I was active on the university’s interdisciplinary eating disorder treatment team and the University Training Committee. I have been providing therapy, eating disorder treatment, and other mental health services since 2008 and have been an active eating disorder advocate in South Bend since 2016.
