It’s estimated that nearly 1 in 10 people will experience an eating disorder in their lifetime, affecting people of every identity and background — yet up to 90% will not get the care they deserve. Arise exists to change that, connecting people with inclusive, personalized support for disordered eating, eating disorders, and mental health.

With its person-centered approach to care, Arise aims to shatter the stereotype of what eating disorders “look like” and break down barriers and stigma to bring people care that works for them. Through virtual care pathways, community, and ongoing support, Arise brings people the right care, where and when they need it. Founded by Amanda D’Ambra and Joan Zhang out of their own healing journeys from eating disorders, Arise is built by and for people who have been there, too — together, we’re empowering effective support for long-term healing.

Our values

  • Listen to lead. We’re not going to have all the answers. To effectively serve every person’s healing journey, we must start by humbly listening to and elevating all voices and experiences.
  • All bodies have value. We’re here for people of any age, race, size, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, and background, because everyone deserves to be understood, respected, and supported.
  • We’re all human. Being human means that we celebrate our successes together and support each other through the low points. We give each other the space to rise and fall and rise again.

We’re hiring Psychiatrists to provide direct care to members on their healing journey from eating disorders and mental health.

We are seeking Psychiatrists with expertise in treating individuals with eating disorders who are committed to providing culturally sensitive, compassionate, and person-centered care. The ideal Psychiatrist is passionate about serving individuals from diverse backgrounds and providing care based on the foundation of mutual trust, respect, and collaboration.
