Do I need treatment?

and other questions you may have

What eating disorders do you treat?


We are a very versed group of eating disorders specialists that work closely with all eating disorders including anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, AFRID, orthorexia, and disordered eating. Our team of therapists and dietitians are all equipped to work with you if you are struggling with an eating disorder.


Why is having a therapist and a dietitian important?


Eating disorders impact not only your mind/thoughts but also can be medically and nutritionally impacting. The importance of having a treatment team, helps to ensure your body is getting the proper nourishment and is medically stable which will be discussed with your dietitian and then your therapist will work with you on your emotions and thoughts around your eating disorder and other co-occurring concerns. Your team will communicate with each other to ensure you are getting the best quality of care possible.


Do you take my insurance?


The insurance we accept at this time is United Healthcare which includes UMR, AvMed, Oscar, and Optum as long as the mental health services are billed through United Healthcare. Effective December 1, 2022, we will be able to accept FL Blue. At this time only therapy services are covered by insurance and nutrition sessions are only available for self pay options.


Do you offer in person sessions in my area?


We have in person options available in the Jacksonville area, Winter Park and Lakeland area. We are able to serve all of FL via virtual sessions if you are outside these areas, as well as GA, NJ and MA.  


Can group therapy be helpful if I am already attending individual therapy?


Yes, some of the benefits of group therapy are: building a support network, sharing experiences with people who understand what you're going through, multiple perspectives, and a safe space to receive feedback.


I've never been to therapy. What is it like?


You will be paired with a therapist that best matches your needs. The first few sessions can be establishing a therapeutic relationship, identifying and setting goals. Typically weekly therapy sessions are recommended to build a good foundation with your therapist.
