Jennifer J. Thomas, Ph.D. 
Clinical Psychologist 
Evidence-Based Psychotherapy for Eating Disorders

I offer psychotherapy for adolescents (ages 13 and up) and adults who struggle with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and other forms of disordered eating and body image disturbance. I primarily draw from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and family-based treatment (FBT, sometimes called the "Maudsley" approach). This is because both CBT and FBT are evidence-based treatments for eating disorders, meaning that many research studies have supported their effectiveness. That said, each new therapy begins with a comprehensive assessment, which allows us to collaboratively generate a treatment plan catered to your unique needs. When working with young people, I view parents as a critical asset to the healing process, and actively involve them in their child's care.

Many people find it challenging to enter psychotherapy and to find a therapist with whom they feel comfortable. For this reason, I am happy to offer a free 10-minute phone consultation to prospective patients and their families. You can contact me at (617) 854-7425. Within the first few sessions of therapy, you should have the sense of being understood.  If this is not the case, I can help you find a therapist who is a better fit.

Please note that I do not currently accept insurance in my private practice. However, your policy may have out-of-network benefits which would allow you to work with me. I will provide you with a statement to submit to your insurance company to seek reimbursement. Prior to your first appointment, I can send you additional written information about my practice, including fee structure, billing practices, and availability during business hours and in case of emergency.
