Virginia Eating Disorder Therapists, Counselors & Specialists

Eating Disorder Hope has put together a list of Virginia 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.

Kendra Wilson, LCSW-S, LCSW, CEDS-S, C-DBT

Kendra Wilson ImageMy goal is to provide expert counseling services to clients in Virginia, North Carolina, and Maryland by providing virtual individual, couple, family, and group therapy to clients with all kinds of mental health issues. My focus has been working with clients struggling with eating disorders, depression, other disorders of over-control, life transitions, self-esteem and the myriad of other mental health concerns that plague modern life.

I enjoy working in a virtual platform, not only because of the convenience of those services but also because it allows a glimpse into my client’s lives. There is no denying the flexibility!
I have been working with clients struggling with eating disorders until 2002.
