Premier Texas Eating Disorder Therapists
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.
Susan Bushong, LPC, LMFT
I treat Binge Eating Disorder, compulsive or addictive eating, bulimia, night eating syndrome, post-bariatric surgery relapse, OCD, BDD and Anorexia.
I also work with exercise resistance and addiction. I help you find your own unique path to healing through an individualized program and personalized solution plan. With a goal to maximize recovery in the least amount of time possible, I use my own workbook of introspective healing exercises chosen specifically for you. I use both non-diet and structured approaches to healing and address underlying causes of eating disorders as well as body hatred, meal planning (if needed) cultural, social and environmental issues.
