Q: What will the sessions be like?

A: Usually the first session is a history gathering session in which you will share with your clinician what is bringing you to therapy as well as a general health assessment. You will get clear on realistic goals and a treatment plan recommendation. The following sessions are typically structured with a check-in regarding the previous week, “accomplishments” around positive steps towards change, areas of struggle, and a bit of exploration around why, and lastly goals/intentions for the following week. Additionally, depending on your goals, assignments such as reading, writing, or activities may be given in between appointments.

Q: How long does therapy usually last?

A:  This will depend on a few different factors. After your assessment period, your clinician will be able to give you an idea of a treatment timeline. This will also include a recommendation for the 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 virtual video or phone sessions if meeting in person becomes difficult.

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

A: Yes! We enjoy working with men and women who are successful in many areas of their lives, but know that their habits or behaviors with food, exercise, or other ways of coping with stress and anxiety are not in balance. We also support couples looking to improve their relationships as well as adults going through a life transition such as making a career change.

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 has been found to be a result of a positive relationship with your therapist. Knowing how important this is, we are always happy to answer as many questions as you have before meeting with your clinician and 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: 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 not in-network providers with any insurance company, yet many of our clients have been able to receive reimbursement depending on the benefits in their plan or if they have an HSA or FSA. Feel free to contact us if you have questions on how to determine your benefits. We recommend working with a platform like Mentaya to help you submit, track, and process your insurance superbills.

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!



“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. She also seemed to be 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!”
