What other issues do you treat besides eating disorders?

Eating disorders are always accompanied by other mental health challenges, so know that we don’t focus only on food or body image. Our relationship with food and our bodies doesn’t develop in a vacuum, but are highly impacted by many things. Other issues we commonly treat in therapy alongside disordered eating include:

anxiety and depression
obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
substance (drug and alcohol) use
bipolar disorder
borderline personality disorder
suicidal thoughts

Issues that are often treated alongside eating disorders in dietitian nutrition therapy include:

Sports nutrition for athletes
Vitamin and mineral deficiencies
Reduced bone mineral density
Digestive problems
Stomach pain and bloating
Blood sugar fluctuations
Autoimmune conditions
Type 1 and 2 diabetes
High cholesterol
High blood pressure

Session FAQs
Do you see clients in your office or online?

Both in-person and telehealth appointments are offered for therapy as well as dietitian nutrition therapy. In-person appointments depend on availability.

How do online appointments work?

Live video sessions allow you to talk with your therapist, dietitian or coach in a virtual face-to-face setting (similar to Skype). We use a HIPAA-compliant platform to ensure confidentiality. The system will send you a unique link for each appointment ahead of time. At the time of our scheduled session, you will use the link to log into our system online or on the app. Your provider will initiate the virtual session and you’ll get started—it’s easy and 100% secure.

What is the difference between eating disorder therapy and coaching—which is right for me?

We respect that clinical eating disorders are complex and medically dangerous mental illnesses, and as such, coaching is meant to supplement treatment you’re already getting from a therapist or dietitian, not take the place of it. Also, counseling is the more appropriate option for anyone who is dealing with other serious mental health issues like depression or anxiety, suicidal thoughts, or unresolved trauma.

We typically require coaching clients to be working with a therapist or dietitian; however, coaching might be an appropriate stand-alone service for someone with subclinical disordered eating, body image issues, or who is further along in their recovery. If you are in need of a therapist and/or dietitian and reside in Texas, you can see one of our team members.

Fees FAQs
Do you take insurance?

We do not accept insurance, but can provide a superbill that you can submit to insurance for out-of-network reimbursement if they offer that (we recommend double-checking with your insurance company about specific benefits and processes since it varies by plan).

Sometimes we are asked why we don’t take insurance. Our experience dealing with insurance companies at higher levels of care has taught us that, unfortunately, using insurance limits client confidentiality, puts clients at risk for increased insurance premiums, and often means getting benefits cut off before clients are ready to end treatment. The amount of paperwork that is involved for us as clinicians when dealing with insurance companies also means we can see fewer clients in a day and would have to turn away more people who need help.

We believe treatment is a highly personal and individualized process that should be guided by collaboration between you, the client, and your therapist… without the interference of a third-party whose goal is to pay out as little benefits as possible.
