Selah Eating Disorder Network
Across our eating disorder network, we meet clients where they are in their recovery and provide the necessary therapeutic techniques to empower sustainable freedom. Our expert clinical teams help clients understand recovery is possible by using individualized treatment plans comprised of a combination of evidence-based treatment modalities. These treatment plans identify goals and values while providing the support needed to achieve and maintain the desired outcome. In a safe, therapeutic environment, clients are introduced to a realistic, plate-based nutrition program acknowledging variation and food choices. The supportive atmosphere provides interaction with a community of peers and licensed therapists allowing clients to explore the contributing factors related to their eating disorder and challenge the thoughts and behaviors preventing them from living fully and freely. Our goal is to make each client feel safe and close to home by conducting all levels of treatment in comfortable and home-like settings designed to offer a clear step-down process, so clients feel continually supported in their recovery journey.

Dr. Amy Ricke
As a Psychiatrist at Selah House, Dr. Ricke approaches treatment from both neurobiological and psychoanalytic perspectives, meaning she believes that our earliest relationships not only determines how the brain develops but also our understanding of ourselves and our relationship with others. Her goal is to understand the complexity of a client’s symptoms and help provide a deeper understanding of themselves and the sources of their pain. She has a holistic view of mental health and recommends therapy and lifestyle changes (i.e., nutrition, sleep, exercise, functional medicine) as part of a treatment plan.
Dr. Ricke is board certified and earned her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Notre Dame, and her M.D. from Case Western Reserve School of Medicine in Ohio, with the distinction of Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society. She continued her education at Indiana University (IU) School of Medicine where she trained in the adult psychiatry residency program. Her clinical interests include mood and anxiety disorders, addiction, eating disorders, trauma, sleep disorders, personality disorders, and chronic medical illness. She has expertise in treating psychiatric issues surrounding menopause and PMS/premenstrual dysphoric disorder. As a volunteer Assistant Professor in the IU Department of Psychiatry, Dr. Ricke remains active in teaching psychiatry residents.
Understanding that life cannot be fully lived without good mental health, she is committed to helping clients move through both long-standing and current difficulties to enjoy personal growth and recover from their eating disorder.
“A psychiatric diagnosis is a milestone in someone’s life. Done well, an accurate diagnosis is the beginning of an increased self-understanding and a launch to effective treatment and a better future. Done poorly, it can be a lingering disaster.”-Allen Frances, MD
