Counseling for Eating Disorders

We're here to support and help you through it.

Our experienced therapists specialize in treating eating disorders like Binge Eating Disorder, ARFID, bulimia, and anorexia.

With decades of combined experience, they offer unique skills and expertise to help clients achieve long-term recovery in both men and women.

Help with Eating Disorders

Family-Based Therapy (FBT) is particularly effective for adolescents with eating disorders. FBT involves the entire family in the treatment process, empowering parents to take an active role in their child’s recovery. This approach helps create a supportive home environment that fosters healthier eating behaviors and emotional wellbeing.

Therapy also provides a safe space for individuals to express their feelings and experiences, reducing isolation and shame often associated with eating disorders. Through therapeutic relationships, clients build trust, gain insights into their behaviors, and develop coping strategies to manage stress and emotional triggers.

How Our therapists work to help individuals combat their eating disorders

Safe, non-judgmental environment.

In therapy for your eating disorder, your therapist creates a safe, non-judgmental environment to explore your relationship with food, body image, and self-esteem. This collaborative process involves your therapist guiding and supporting you throughout your journey.

A tailored treatment plan.

Your therapist will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your biological, psychological, and social well-being. This will pinpoint underlying issues and triggers of your eating disorder, allowing therapy to effectively target the root causes of your disordered eating behaviors.

Evidence-based practices.

At McNulty Counseling and Wellness, our therapists use evidence-based practices such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to effectively treat eating disorders.

Holistic support for eating disorders.

We offer holistic support for eating disorders, addressing physical, emotional, and psychological aspects. Although our therapists don’t provide nutrition counseling, clients can work with specialized nutritionists. This interdisciplinary approach ensures comprehensive, tailored care.

A journey of self-discovery and growth.

Therapy for eating disorders goes beyond treating symptoms; it’s an empowering journey of self-discovery and growth. Through therapy, you’ll understand the root causes of your disorder, develop a healthier relationship with food and your body, and discover your unique strengths and values.

Guidance, empathy, and a safe space.

During your therapy at McNulty Counseling and Wellness, you’ll build a strong therapeutic relationship with your counselor, who provides guidance, empathy, and a safe space for expression. Together, you’ll pursue recovery goals, addressing both psychological and emotional challenges of eating disorders

Anorexia & Bulimia

Anorexia and bulimia are serious eating disorders that differ significantly. Anorexia nervosa is marked by an extreme fear of gaining weight and severe food restriction, often resulting in drastic weight loss. Bulimia nervosa involves cycles of binge eating followed by purging, and may not always result in noticeable weight loss, making it less apparent.

Both disorders necessitate professional treatment such as psychotherapy, nutrition counseling, and potentially medication. Seeking help from qualified healthcare providers is essential for recovery.

Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder

ARFID is an eating disorder marked by selective eating habits and avoidance of certain foods, without concerns about body image, weight, or shape. Those with ARFID often face distress and anxiety around food, leading to social isolation, malnutrition, and health complications.

What is Binge Eating Disorder?

Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is the most prevalent eating disorder in the U.S., characterized by episodes of eating large amounts of food quickly, often without hunger.

This can lead to obesity, heart disease, and depression. Distinguishing occasional overeating from BED is vital, as BED involves frequent, life-impacting episodes. 

McNulty Counseling and Wellness provides comprehensive treatment for BED, including psychotherapy, nutrition counseling, and medication management by licensed experts, aimed at supporting long-term recovery.”
