Why Choose Long Island Counseling Services?
Eating disorders arise in complex and varied ways. Not everyone will have the same symptoms and same triggers. Not everyone will have developed eating disorders the same way. We want to hear from you, understand you, and determine – together – what approach will work best for giving you or your child what they need to thrive.
Long Island Counseling Services has a full team of therapists and eating disorder specialists, each of whom provides a safe space to work through your eating disorders and body image struggles. We are able to offer many different modalities, including:
- Psychodynamic Theory
- Psychoanalytic Therapy
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Behavior Modification
- Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
We use treatments that are evidence based, and focused on making sure that there is measurable change in eating habits and body image struggles. In addition, those that engage in our counseling are better able to:
- Respond positively to stress.
- Manage anxiety and depression.
- Maintain healthier behavioral habits.
- Stay focused on the moment.
- Engage in a positive relationship with food and exercise.
Often times, when treating eating disorders, we may also find that there are other underlying issues, such as anxiety and depression. We can address those as well, either independently or as a holistic part of your treatment.
Types of Eating Disorders We Treat
There are different types of eating disorders, and different ways that those eating disorders can manifest. We are here to provide a personalized treatment for all of them. Some of the types of eating disorders we work with include:
- Anorexia Nervosa
- Bulimia Nervosa
- Binge Eating Disorder
- Exercise Bulimia
- Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder
We are also available to talk to you about food and diet related issues, like food addiction, which are not considered “eating disorders” but often benefit from psychotherapy.

Eating disorders are not something that is easy to control, and the complexity of them – from triggers to behaviors to underlying causes – make it different to manage and stop eating disorders on their own.
At Long Island Counseling Services, our local therapists are available to provide the programs and solutions that will help you or your child take control of your diet and exercise habits and make sure that you’re eating healthier and more productively – all while addressing the body image and mental health issues that caused the eating disorder to occur.
