Individual Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is considered the treatment of choice for adult eating disorders and is often combined with other treatment modalities. CBT focuses on the core beliefs, feelings and behaviors that maintain the eating disorder such as fear of weight gain, impaired body image and faulty beliefs about food. CBT also addresses personality characteristics that can reinforce the eating disorder. Many tools and techniques will be used to address faulty cognitions and develop healthier and more flexible beliefs about food, eating and body image. In addition to CBT, our therapists also integrate aspects mindfulness, meditation, mindful self-compassion, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and intuitive eating into their work.
