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.

    Julia Israelski, LCSW

    Eating disorders are often an external manifestation of deep internal pain. My goal in treatment is to assist clients in understanding what factors led to their eating disordered behavior, explore the function it serves in their lives, and to help them identify and utilize the strengths they already possess to develop more effective coping skills to overcome their disorder. I utilize a variety of evidenced based theories and interventions to develop a client centered treatment plan.
