Eating Disorder Counseling
Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge-Eating Disorder, Orthorexia, Diabulimia, Exercise Bulimia…these are some common names and terms you might be familiar with when it comes to describing what you do with food and your body. The truth of the matter is though eating disorders and disordered eating exist on a continuum and while you might not be struggling with a clinically diagnosed eating disorder, you still might be experiencing real distress around food, weight, and your body and could benefit from eating disorder counseling.
In a supportive, nonjudgmental space, you can begin to take the steps necessary to regain control of your life.
Identify triggers and recognize how these behaviors are no longer helpful in your life.
Challenge negative self-talk and rigid rules around food, exercise, body, and weight.
Learn new practices for dealing with your emotions and expressing them in ways that are meaningful and significant to you.
By creating distance between you and the eating disorder, you can give yourself the opportunity to start living your life instead of feeling trapped by the thoughts and behaviors related to the eating disorder.
Whether you have been struggling with disordered eating for several years or this has been a recent way you’ve learned to cope with stress or problems in your life, I believe change is always a choice and possibility. Perhaps past efforts of change have not led to the lasting change you want, lets work together to break the cycle of depression, anxiety, addiction, and compulsive behaviors that go hand in hand with eating disorders.
