Clinical Psychology
In brief: Absolutely!!
I've treated patients who struggled DECADES and are no longer bingeing.
Whatever is going on with food is a symptom of the problem, not "the" problem. It's vital to understand what's eating "at" you, instead of focusing on food. Psychotherapy can help you learn new ways of coping.
