Are you constantly thinking about your weight and counting calories?

Do you feel out of control when eating?

Eating disorder therapy can help you overcome these challenges you face and find freedom from the difficult relationship you have with food.

Can you relate to one or more of the following:

  • Eating large quantities of food in a short period of time.
  • Feeling guilt or shame after eating.
  • Repeated and unsuccessful attempts at dieting.
  • You feel embarrassed or self-conscious about eating.
  • Your weight is directly linked to your level of self-esteem.
  • You have thoughts of “feeling fat,” and an intense fear of gaining weight.
  • You often fast or severely restrict your calorie intake.
  • You hide or sneak food and lie about your eating habits.
  • You exercise compulsively, often exceeding two hours per day.
  • You engage in self-induced vomiting or abuse laxatives or diuretics in an attempt to compensate for a binge.
  • You binge eat when you’re not hungry or to relieve depression or stress.
  • You eat sensibly in front of others, and then binge when you are alone.

There Is A Solution With Eating Disorder Therapy

If you said yes to any of these behaviors or feelings, you do not need to continue living with disordered eating or an eating disorder.  If you are underweight, overweight, or near your ideal weight, if you have a painful relationship with food, physical activity, or your body image, you can put an end to the struggle.  Eating disorder therapy can assist you in changing these self-destructive patterns, as you learn to replace them with new, healthy, and positive patterns.

Eating Disorder Therapy can help you by:

  • Teaching you to let go of obsessive thoughts about food and your body.
  • Teaching you to end the dieting roller coaster for good.
  • Teaching you to make food choices based on solid nutritional information.
  • Introducing you to the fulfillment that comes with understanding what you really need and want.
  • Teaching you to feel in control around food, both with others and when alone.
  • Introducing you to healing the painful, emotional, traumatic or abusive experiences that are at the root of all eating and body image problems.
  • Teaching you to enjoy a healthy level of physical activity for the right reasons.
  • Teaching you to make peace with your body.
  • Introducing you to the idea of repairing and deepening your relationship with yourself and your body, while discovering that you deserve to be treated with love, respect, and compassion.
