Compassionate, Specialized ED Therapy in Pittsburgh

The Center for Eating Disorder and Body Image Recovery

The Center for Eating Disorder and Body Image Recovery of Cognitive Behavior Institute is a comprehensive outpatient center for the continued treatment of eating disorders, disordered eating, and body image concerns in persons of all ages, genders, abilities, ethnicities, and other identities. This Center operates with the knowledge that current services for our clients in the outpatient setting is limited and skewed to private higher levels of care. We seek to create a soft landing place for clients returning from those higher levels of care, or seeking guidance for the first time. 

Our Center recognizes the systemic needs of our clients and in addition to individual counseling, we provide family counseling, group support, and support interdisciplinary care. Following individual counseling, we emphasize the development of healthy coping skills as part of our comprehensive treatment approach, focusing on promoting physical health, decreasing obsessive thinking, and increasing body image and self-acceptance. We are firmly committed to the principles of Health At Every Size and the understanding of eating disorders within the systems of gender and race.

We at the Cognitive Behavior Institute value research-informed, compassionate, and purpose-driven care, ensuring each treatment plan is personalized and based on evidence-based practices. Our variety of treatment options includes individual therapy, family involvement, and evidence-based approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy and exposure therapy, catering to the unique needs of each patient.
