Beyond Counseling is proud to have a team of qualified clinicians who specialize in eating disorders therapy. Our commitment to helping families is at the forefront of our practice. We understand that eating disorders can have a profound impact on the individual’s life and those around them.

Eating disorders are serious and complex medical and mental health conditions that can affect both children and adults. Eating disorders are characterized by an extreme and dangerous alteration in eating patterns, such as eating too little or too much, and by an intense preoccupation with body size and shape. Eating disorders are caused by a multitude of factors, including physiological, psychological, family dynamics, and biological. 


Approximately 1 in 5 people with anorexia, bulimia, or other eating disorders have a co-occurring mental health disorder. About half of people with anorexia or bulimia also have an anxiety disorder.  Depression is the most common mental illness seen with eating disorders, however, many other disorders co-occur (including substance abuse, OCD and other personality disorders). About 40-60% of individuals with eating disorders also have a substance abuse disorder. - In the US, an estimated 10 million people suffer from an eating disorder (two-thirds of them are women). - Approximately 31.9% of U.S. adults with anorexia nervosa also have depression. - An estimated 18.5% of adults with bulimia nervosa also have substance abuse disorder.

Our team of clinicians at Beyond Counseling is composed of highly qualified experts who are dedicated to providing effective treatment for individuals and families struggling with eating disorders. We understand the complex nature of these disorders and the unique challenges they present. 


  1. Common signs of an eating disorder include sudden and dramatic weight loss or gain

  2. An intense preoccupation with food and weight

  3. Changes in food intake

  4. Changes in behavior related to food

  5. Changes in social activities or avoidance of foods previously enjoyed

  6. Changes in exercise

  7. Extreme mood swings and irritability

  8. Inappropriate use of diet pills, laxatives, or other weight control medications, feelings of isolation and depression, and a general lack of enthusiasm. 


Treatment for eating disorders and those with co-occurring disorders starts with gathering background data to pinpoint the problems at hand.  The focus is on achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. It involves a combination of psychological treatment, nutritional education, medical intervention, and family support. In many cases, specialized eating disorder treatment centers offer multi-disciplinary treatment (e.g. medical, nutritional, and psychological) in an outpatient setting. In severe cases of eating disorders, a hospital stay may be needed. Clients can also set objectives with the therapist they want to accomplish during counseling sessions. A few prevalent psychotherapies are:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

  • Interpersonal Therapy

  • Family Therapy
