It is possible to achieve a healthy relationship with food and your body.

  • You can develop a healthy relationship with food: You may not think it’s possible to let go of eating behaviors that make you feel safe, but healing from past pain and trauma will lead you to let go of these behaviors.

Do You struggle with disordered eating?

Counseling is often necessary for the treatment of emotional eating, anorexia, and bulimia to help free you from obsessive behaviors with food

Eating Disorder Treatment helps heal past wounds and trauma that have contributed to one’s emotional eating, anorexia, or bulimia. The results you gain with counseling are healthier eating habits, self-acceptance, healing of past wounds, and an inner confidence.

If you identify with any of these experiences, therapy will help you overcome your   emotional ties to eating and feel better about yourself

 

Eating Disorder characteristics

  • You don’t like your body: You don’t like what you see and want to be thinner, fitter, or prettier
  • You engage in starving, binging and purging, or excessive exercise: You use these behaviors ignoring your hunger signs regularly.
  • You are scared of gaining weight: You may fear losing control of your eating and engage in behaviors that make you feel “safe”.
  • You can’t be thin enough: You can’t be satisfied with yourself and continuously beat yourself up for not being thin enough.
  • Even if you wanted to stop these behaviors, you can’t: These behaviors have made you feel safe and you are afraid to let them go. You can’t see that you are hurting yourself and can’t stop.

If you identify with any of the feelings above, you may have tried different things to feel better, but feel you can’t do it on your own. You may have tried but are too afraid to let go of these eating patterns and are seeking out help. I understand your struggle with food and my experiences have shown me that you can overcome your struggles with food and your body image.

You will benefit from working with a therapist specializing in eating disorders. I have an extensive knowledge of eating disorders and a treatment plan that ensures you are guided and supported throughout the process. Through uncovering past wounds, I will help you understand the reasons you have been using these behaviors and help you heal from these memories. You will be able to let go of behaviors and incorporate healthy eating habits and self-acceptance. Working through past wounds with the right support will bring self-acceptance and courage to incorporate a healthier lifestyle.
