Eating Disorders

People with eating disorders can suffer in silence, feel depressed and question their value. Therapy for eating disorders can help bring balance to a life ruled by extremes.


Do you feel like your relationship to food is problematic? You may be overeating or barely eating at all. Perhaps you are purging by vomiting or using laxatives, measuring and weighing everything you eat or exercising obsessively because you believe you are overweight, even though friends and family say otherwise. You may be hiding your suffering from others and avoiding friends and loved ones, especially those who express concern. Most people experiencing these behaviors are girls or women, but boys and men can have issues with food and eating too.

In the long-term, these problems can negatively affect health and physical well-being and in some cases, even become life-threatening. People with eating disorders can suffer silently on the inside, living below the radar, feeling depressed, anxious and bad about themselves. It can be difficult, if not impossible, to deal with on your own, and hard to know where to turn for help.

Eating issues can be treated, and therapy can help bring balance to a life once ruled by extremes. Therapy can assist you in understanding the powerful emotions that underlie your struggle around eating and what it is that truly nourishes you.
