Lianne Gann, Ph.D., has worked with eating disorders, trauma, crisis, and co-occurring concerns throughout her clinical work in settings that include outpatient mental health clinics, several university counseling centers, a community LGBTQ clinic, a homeless shelter, and psychoeducational assessment clinic for gift children and adolescents. She earned her doctorate from the University of Iowa in Iowa City, IA., where she specialized in research related to orthorexia, body image and gender conformity, and high functioning autism spectrum disorder. She completed her pre-doctoral training at the University of Colorado Boulder’s Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS) in Boulder, CO, where she provided clinical services treating eating disorders, trauma-related disorders, anxiety and mood disorders, and relationship and identity concerns. She also offered outreach and psychoeducation services to the university community related to supporting students with mental health concerns, suicide prevention, and team cohesion and values for athletic teams. Additionally, Lianne continued her training at CU Boulder Counseling and Psychiatric Services as a post-doctoral fellow in crisis care and triage services where she provided clinical services related to triage, case management, and post-hospitalization care or support while continuing to specialize in eating disorders as a member on this multidisciplinary team at CU.

As a primary therapist at EDCare, Dr. Gann seeks to support patients as they explore and gain insight into the underlying factors that have contributed to and maintain their eating disorder.

Dr. Gann strives to foster a collaborative, transparent relationship with patients while they explore various patterns they may find themselves ‘stuck’ in. By exploring these patterns, Dr. Gann strives to work alongside patients in cultivating further insight that can lead to a new understanding and experience for patients to promote healing and change in their journey towards recovery.

Dr. Gann enjoys being outdoors, reading, and spending time with friends and family!
