Psychological Therapies for Eating Disorders

Holistic treatment for an eating disorder often involves a psychological and a physical component. Nutritionists and physicians often work with counselors and therapists to provide such extensive care. Within the psychological component of care, there are many options for treatment that a mental health professional can apply to each client, such as eating disorder therapy, depending upon their unique needs. Potential interventions include…

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) helped patients develop self-awareness of their feelings and experiences, especially how their thoughts can lead to unhealthy urges. This therapy focuses on helping individuals understand these impulses and redirected them toward actions that build their health.
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) seeks to build coping mechanisms that allow clients to process painful experiences and emotions in a healthy way. Such coping mechanisms may include mindfulness and emotional regulation. The goal is to gain more control over one’s untrue and negative emotions and thoughts.
  • Family Therapy involves a client’s family—potentially their spouse, parents, siblings, and more. The goal is to build maturity and nurture systemic change that can support an individual’s healing. It may be particularly helpful if family dysfunction is a contributing factor in the development of the eating disorder.

When I met with Jillian Kraydich I was in awe with her professionalism and exceptional bedside manor. Our meeting started on time and I felt comfortable right from the start. She was patient, understanding and overall a great help for me. She took the time to get to know me over the course of a few meetings and always allowed me to talk about whatever was on my mind without interruptions or judgement. I have spoken with a few other therapists in the past but they did not allow me to speak as freely as Jillian did. I would highly recommend her for the numerous reasons I stated above.
