Connecticut Eating Disorder Therapists, Counselors & Specialists

Eating Disorder Hope has put together a list of Connecticut eating disorder therapists into a single directory.

Specialists who treat bulimia, anorexia, binge eating, orthorexia, or other forms of disordered eating in their practice include:

  • Eating disorder therapists (also known as eating disorder counselors, or eating disorder psychologists)-Provide regular therapy sessions and may practice more specific forms of therapy such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), family-based therapy, or other proven treatments for eating disorders. An eating disorder therapist may also treat co-occurring disorders in their practice.
  • Registered dietitians-Create and maintain a balanced meal plan, and take part in Medical Nutrition Therapy
  • Eating disorder psychiatrists-Prescribe medications and manage drug therapy
  • Physicians who specialize in treating eating disorders-Oversee core medical complications that arise from eating disorders (such as heart palpitations, muscle atrophy, chronic migraines, etc.)

Men and women with eating disorders typically create a dedicated treatment team made of an eating disorder counselor, a dietitian, psychiatrist, and physician. This level of comprehensive treatment has been proven to be the most successful method of fighting and recovering from an eating disorder.
