Dr. Kylie Dennis, Eating Disorder Specialist is not currently accepting new clients.
After many years of experience treating eating disorders, I have narrowed my specialty to adults who have Binge Eating Disorder. People seek my help with bingeing, emotional overeating, food addiction, negative and distorted body image, and adjustment to bariatric surgery. Overeating or bingeing is how you may be coping with feelings, stress, emotional pain, and relationship problems. It is possible to get control over your eating and stop hating your body.
You probably know what you need to do. How do you get there from where you are now? I start with a careful evaluation of your situation and needs. Together, we work on finding and maintaining healthier, more effective ways of coping. Recovery is possible. My private practice is a warm, supportive, personalized alternative to large treatment centers.
It takes courage and determination to look into psychotherapy for your eating disorder. It is so important to take better care of yourself! The next step is to set up a short phone appointment to talk about your situation and answer your questions about therapy. Send me an email now, while you are thinking about it. Visit my website for more information.

Professional Connections

Kyle has a wealth of knowledge and tremendous compassion for those suffering with eating disorders or who are dealing with emotional overeating and weight gain. I trust her clinical judgment and she is very helpful in providing useful information and ideas to her colleagues. I am privileged to be part of the same professional organization as her.

Kyle is truly a trailblazer in her field. In an area so fraught with fads and quick fixes, with empty promises and short sighted cures Kyle brings a career of expertise and compassion to meeting people where they are and working to better their lives and their self esteem regardless of external outcomes.
