Hello, I’m Doctor Levinson

Clinical Director, Licensed Psychologist

As a native of Louisville I have seen firsthand how eating disorders negatively impact our community. I spent 15 years away from Louisville at world-renowned Universities training in the treatment and research of eating disorders. Now, as an Associate Professor at the University of Louisville I am passionate about bringing the best services to our state. The therapists, dietitians, and prescribers at the Louisville Center for Eating Disorders provide the best treatments and team based approaches for eating disorders. Reach out and we will help lead you or your loved one to recovery.

About us

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

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


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.  

We offer reduced rates for people with financial need. To apply for this, you will need to complete a reduced fee application.  If your insurance company is one we are not currently in-network with, we can work with them to apply for a single-case agreement.  

We treat all ages from as young as age 3. We have several child and adolescent specialists, as well as providers who specialize in eating disorders in middle age and older adults. Eating disorders affect people of all ages and we are here to help no matter the age!

The first time you come to therapy is scary! We do our best to make sure you feel as comfortable as possible. In your first session we will spend two hours asking 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.

The Louisville Center for Eating Disorders is currently in-network with multiple insurers for Intensive Outpatient Therapy and Partial Hospitalization is actively seeking additional sources of insurance coverage. 

For Intensive Outpatient Care, we are currently in-network with:


For standard outpatient treatment, your care will be considered out-of-network.  Despite this, the cost of treatment may still be covered, at least in part, through your insurance plan’s out-of-network benefits.
