Welcome to Louisville Center for Eating Disorders

We provide evidence-based treatments for eating and co-occurring disorders (anxiety, OCD, depression, etc.)

Evidence-based treatment means that all of our providers specialize in treatments that science has supported as effective. We approach eating disorders from a lens of health at every size (HAES).  In addition, we personalize all of our treatment plans, based on evidence, to make sure that the treatment best fits your unique needs. Here are a few treatments that we specialize in:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Eating Disorders
  • Family Based Therapy for Anorexia Nervosa
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy
  • Perfectionism Therapy
  • Meal-Support Therapy
  • Mindfulness Therapy and Intuitive Eating
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  • Treatment to Improve Body Image

Services We Offer

Partial Hospitalization Program

Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) offers six hours of evidence-based therapy each weekday for all eating disorders. Combines individual therapy, group therapy, dietetic support, meal therapy, and medication management. Ideal for those needing more support than outpatient or intensive outpatient

Intensive Outpatient Program

Known as "IOP" this program offers three hours each weekday of evidence based support for eating disorders. Utilizes individual and group therapies, dietetic support, and medication management. This program is ideal for individuals who need more than outpatient therapy or who are transitioning out of a partial hospitalization program. 

Treatment For Co-Occurring Disorders

Eating disorders often co-occur with anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and substance use disorders. Our specialists are trained to treat eating disorders AND any other co-occurring psychological illnesses.

Psychiatric Support

An important part of an effective eating disorder team is psychiatric support. While our initial approach is always therapy, in many cases medication can help assist with the ability to participate and benefit from therapy.

Online Therapy

For those individuals who cannot access our treatment center in person, we are able to expand some of our programs to telehealth. All sessions are confidential with a trained therapist. Patients must be deemed clinical appropriate for virtual care.


We offer training for those in school to become therapists as either practicum students or post doctoral fellows. We also provide training or case consultation for licensed professionals who want to learn more about eating disorders, and offer trainings for hospitals or other facilities.

Frequently Asked Questions

Call 502-205-1114 or contact us here. You can also fill out the consultation form at the bottom of this page. One of our trained staff is available to help you schedule your first session.  


The treatments we use at the Louisville Center for Eating Disorders have been shown to reduce disordered eating, anxiety, and depression and improve quality of life.  


For outpatient therapy, our sister clinic Be Well Providers is private pay and service costs are based on clinician hourly rates.  We do offer a sliding scale program that provides reduced rates for those with demonstrated financial need.

Our Intensive Outpatient and Partial Hospitalization Programs are in network with several insurance companies.  If we are not in network with your insurance provider we are happy to work with your insurance company towards a single case agreement.  These agreements often enable those who are “out of network” the ability to access care.

Our Intensive Outpatient and Partial Hospitalization Programs can accept patients as young as 13 years old, though this can vary based on clinical appropriateness.


Your first time in therapy can be intimidating. We do our best to make sure you feel as comfortable as possible. In your first session we will ask you lots of questions about your eating, anxiety, mood, and history. We ask these questions so that we can develop a personalized treatment plan that is best for you.


Our Intensive Outpatient Program and Partial Hospitalization Program are both in network with several insurance providers including several Medicaid providers.  Additionally we are able to work with many other insurance providers through single case agreements.  

Currently all outpatient services are provided through our sister clinic Be Well Providers, which is out of network with all insurance providers. For more information about the cost of services, availability of reimbursement from insurance, and reduced rates through our sliding scale program please click here.
