    Premier Eating Disorder Therapists

    Jennifer Pereira, RD, LD, CSCS

    I am a licensed RD, LD, CSCS. I am happy to provide nutrition counseling, both online as well as locally in my private practice. I also offer group classes in my private practice. My office is located in the heart of the Dallas/Fort Worth area, in Arlington, Texas.

    Dana Turnbull, Ph.D.

    I am a licensed psychologist in private practice on the National Register for Health Service Psychologists, treating the full eating disorder spectrum primarily via individual cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy. I also offer family & couples counseling. While many disorders are symptomatically similar, individuals require unique approaches.

    I enjoy developing individualized treatment plans with my clients, who then take learned skills into the real world for practice. Clients and I then utilize any feedback to minimize undesired & maximize desired outcomes.

    Most of us earn our self-esteem through behavior. Practiced behavior optimizes results, so I often assign homework. I work with some clients on a long-term basis, though most of my work is short-term and solution-focused. I also have specialized training in psychopharmacology & behavioral medicine.



    Laura May-Roelse MA, RD/LDAs a registered dietitian with a Masters degree in Counseling I work with all forms of eating disorders. I work in many ways to help a person accept their unique bodies and to learn how to how to have a better relationship with food.
