Professional statement

Karin Lewis is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who provides remote video sessions to clients living in MA, RI, or NY. With over a decade of experience in running facilities ranging from intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization to residential treatment programs, she is an expert in eating disorder recovery. She helps individuals with all types of eating disorders, including Anorexia, Bulimia, and disordered eating. She pulls from her own experience of recovering from Anorexia Nervosa to help connect with her clients.

Karin’s treatment approach is grounded in the Humanistic and Relational model while incorporating Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) when appropriate. She also takes a collaborative team approach by working with dietitians, recovery coaches, and psychiatrists to ensure her clients are receiving the best care possible. She also works with her clients to dig deep and get to the root of their issues.

Karin deeply believes in full recovery and is there for her clients every step of the way.


Message to clients

The Karin Lewis Eating Disorder Center provides humanistic, evidence-based care by experienced, judgment free, affirming, well trained therapists with lived experience. We are committed to supporting clients and their family members during their struggles and believe that full recovery is attainable with insight, awareness, strength, support, and courage. We help clients navigate through the more complex issues that are being masked by the adaptive functioning of the eating disorder behaviors.

We use our years of clinical experience and numerous years of being recovered to provide specialized eating disorder services that help clients navigate the complex issues that have manifested in their eating disorder.

In recovery, we hope to lead you to a place of groundedness, balance, safety, confidence, maturity, and self-acceptance. We are committed to support clients and their families through this courageous process. Please see our website for additional information about our nationwide Support Groups and Recovery Coaching services, and the Recovery Bites Podcast.
