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.

Premier Florida Eating Disorder Therapists
Joanna Poppink, MFT
Stopping eating disorder behaviors is just the beginning of eating disorder recovery. I suffered from bulimia for many years. I know what it’s like to have an eating disorder when no one seems to understand the experience, including yourself.
In working with me, we slow down the dysfunctional eating (or non-eating) patterns while we discover and build on your genuine talents, gifts, and heartfelt desires. Your energy shifts from the eating behaviors to life fulfilling tasks. Eventually, you find that in living a satisfying life where you can be genuine in your work, love, and play, you no longer need an eating disorder.
My private psychotherapy practice is virtual and serves clients throughout Arizona, California, Florida, Oregon and Utah. I am the author of Healing Your Hungry Heart: Recovering from Your Eating Disorder, a guide to eating disorder recovery. To make an appointment for a free telephone consultation, e-mail [email protected].

I work with individuals who have eating disorders, body image issues, and co-occurring mental health issues. I work with counselor interns as a qualified supervisor and mentor in areas of recovery, mental health, and wellness. Mental health and recovery are holistic in nature and include our bodies, minds, and spirits. I view therapy as a safe space to move into healing and transformation and recovery as the pathway that leads to a lifetime of joy, fulfillment, and connection.
