Eating Disorder Therapy
What is Your Relationship With Food?
Start The Healing Process
Your relationship to food is a sacred and life giving connection. We learn messages about food and self-nurturance over our entire lives through our families, culture, friendships, peer groups, etc. At any point in time, our relationship to food and body can shift- a period of intense stress or extreme changes in life circumstances or a new developmental time of life- can set unhealthy patterns into motion. Puberty, marriage, childbirth, divorce, menopause, trauma, accidents, loss of a loved one, etc all can come with unique challenges which can disrupt our relationship with our food and body.
Starting to explore your relationship to food and body can be a very personal journey. We can help by assessing your relationship with food and body through a lens of beliefs, feelings, and behaviors. We can create a unique plan that helps you change behaviors with food while taking care of and understanding your emotional needs more directly at the same time.
Treatment for eating disorders will be specifically tailored to your needs through an initial assessment followed by a treatment planning session. Psychotherapy or talk therapy is used as a primary mode of treatment for eating disorders. In addition, nutritional counseling, psychiatry, family/ couples counseling and/or group therapy are often needed as well, depending on the level and intensity of the eating disorder. The length of treatment depends on the individuals ability to make behavioral changes with their relationship with food.
