“To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.”
― Thich Nhat Hanh
Here at Lotus Counseling of CT we offer intensive, clinically based, eating disorder treatment utilizing the most current, empirically proven treatment methods including TF-CBT and DBT.
Much of the focus in treatment is based upon utilizing Health At Every Size® and Intuitive Eating Principals to expertly guide client through the process of re-feeding and developing a holistic connection to food and their bodies.
We know through research that there is a high co-morbidity rate between eating disorders and trauma, depression, anxiety and a plethora of other diagnoses.
We provide a holistic approach and collaborate with primary care physicians, dietitians, psychiatrists, and community providers, to create a solid treatment team to best support each clients individual needs.
Our eating disorder treatment is offered by a certified eating disorder professional who has been credentialed through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professional (IADEP), a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor and a HAES expert. We ensure our professionals engage in regular trainings and education so you can receive the most up-to-date treatment.
We are also proud providers for Project HEAL where we accept clients through their scholarship and free treatment program. We believe economics, race, ethnicity, sexual identity and orientation should not be barriers to quality treatment.
