Q: There are a lot of clinicians out there, how do I know I will be matched with the right one?

A: It can be overwhelming to sort through all of the available support. A significant component of success in therapy is having a positive relationship with your therapist and trusting that they can help you. All Evolve clinicians are experts in treating Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating, ARFID and other forms of eating disorders. Knowing how important this is, we are always happy to answer as many questions you may have before meeting with your clinician. We will also provide referrals if it doesn’t feel like the right fit.

Additionally, we regularly ask our current clients for anonymous feedback on their experiences. You can see the responses to the questionnaire here.

Q: Can you help me if I don’t have an eating disorder, but just have some eating issues (or my problem has nothing to do with food)?

A: Yes! We enjoy working with adults who don’t have an eating disorder, but know that their habits or behaviors with food, exercise, or other ways of coping with stress and anxiety are unhealthy. We also work with couples who want to improve their relationships and offer coaching for those going through life transitions.

Q: What are your fees? Will insurance cover my therapy sessions?

A: Our individual therapy fee is $275 and the nutrition counseling fee is $180.

We are out of network providers. Many of our clients have been able to receive reimbursement depending on their plan or if they have an HSA or FSA.

We recommend Mentaya, a platform that can help you submit, track, and process your insurance superbills.

Q: What will the sessions be like?

A: Your first session will include some history gathering, health assessment, and clarity on your goals. After 1-3 sessions, a treatment plan will be recommended by your clinician.

The following sessions will most likely be structured with a check-in about the previous week, steps taken towards positive change, areas of struggle, and goals/intentions for the following week. Depending on your treatment plan, assignments such as reading, writing, or activities may be given between sessions.

Q: How long does therapy usually last?

A:  This will depend on a few different factors. After your assessment, your clinician will be able to give you an idea of a treatment timeline and recommended frequency of sessions. In the beginning, it may be weekly but then may decrease to one or two sessions per month.

For clients who are new to recovery and have struggled with disordered eating for several years, recovery usually takes around 6 months for significant progress to be made. Those who just want a ‘tune-up’  and expand their recovery work or improve their body image may need 3-6 months.

Q: What if it becomes difficult for me to make weekly appointments?

A: We understand that personal and professional commitments can arise. We believe that therapy should be something you look forward to, not another stressful thing on your to-do list.  Your clinician will work with you to find the most convenient time to meet and also offer video or phone sessions if meeting in person becomes difficult.

Also, if you don’t feel ready to start one on one therapy, we offer a self-led online course created by the founder of Evolve and based on her book.

Q: How do I get started?

A: You are welcome to call, email, or schedule an intake session directly via our online scheduler. We look forward to hearing from you soon!


Client Testimonials


“Working with Shrein was wonderful. She immediately gave me tips that stopped my negative behavior. She also seemed to always manage to bring out something sensitive that I probably needed to deal with in every session. Shrein was able to teach me how to teach myself, rather that outlining a fixed way that she thought would work which I think was very effective.”

“Natalie was great and I feel like after having counseling with her, I was able to process everything that I needed to address. Feeling much better now. Lost all the weight that I had initially gained from overeating and am now focusing on health and feeling good. Feel so grateful for my time with her! 100% awesome.”

“I’m truly so impressed and beyond grateful for Tessa. She is helping me deconstruct 19 years’ worth of disordered eating mess and I’ve come farther in the two and a half weeks of working with her than with anything else I’ve tried.”

“I am very grateful for my therapy sessions with Anna. It’s working out really well!”

“REALLY appreciate the clinician matching process – I felt very heard and empowered to seek out the care I needed!”
