Eating Disorders Counseling

Types of Eating Disorders:

  • Anorexia
  • Bulimia
  • Compulsive overeating and Binge eating
  • Emotional Eating

We live in a weight obsessed culture. The media idealizes body types that are not realistic for most people. Therefore, we are set up to strive for something that is not attainable for most. This leads to depression, self hatred, diets that do not work and anxiety. The greatest gift that we can give ourselves is to accept our bodies the way they are and to understand that we all come in different shapes and sizes.

Treatment:

  • Learn to identify, understand and change eating habits, behaviors, and patterns
  • Learn to accept yourself, set reasonable expectations and stop hating your body
  • Learn to recognize, feel and accept personal feelings and needs
  • Learn to be assertive and speak for yourself
  • Listening to our body and meeting it’s true needs
  • Mindfulness practice and eating mindfully
  • Learn new methods of self care to support healthy eating practices
