Profile

Amy Laster

MS, LCMHC

Clinical Manager

Child, Adolescent & Adult Eating Disorder Treatment Center – Triangle – Durham, NC

Amy Laster (she/her) is the Clinical Manager of Veritas Collaborative’s Triangle Child, Adolescent & Adult Eating Disorder Treatment Center in Durham, North Carolina. In this role, Amy serves as clinical and staff support for adult partial hospitalization (PHP) and intensive outpatient (IOP), and adolescent PHP/IOP. Amy is an experienced resource for our patients, able to provide individual therapy, family therapy, couples therapy, group therapy, clinical supervision, and therapeutic meal support.

Amy is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LCMHC) in North Carolina, earning her Master of Science in mental health counseling from Nova Southeastern University. Since 2019, Amy has worked with Veritas patients across numerous levels of care, including inpatient, residential, and PHP/IOP. She utilizes an integrated approach to therapy, which incorporates features of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and exposure and response prevention (ERP). Her interest in lower levels of care led her to her current role as a clinical manager.

Amy loves to learn and even helped develop the curriculum utilized across Accanto Health. She strongly believes that thorough assessment and development of an evidence-based treatment plan underpin the success of treating eating disorders. Amy is also passionate about increasing access to care for all individuals who are struggling. She enjoys partnering with external community providers to provide education on the detection and treatment of eating disorders. One of Amy’s goals is to grow awareness of inherent biases surrounding body size and nutrition, as well as to break down harmful eating disorder-related stigma.
