Eating disorders are life threatening illnesses caused by a variety of factors. They are debilitating, soul crushing, and prevent a person from living life to its fullest potential.
Eating disorders are not rare and are often misunderstood. They are frequently accompanied by other life stressors such as anxiety, depression, a past history of trauma, and immense amounts of shame.
Family members and friends might say “just eat” or “just stop eating,” while sufferers continue to feel overwhelmed and trapped in the disorder. In truth, eating disorders and their other accompanied challenges go far beyond food and body image issues.
Do not wait to get help. No matter how big or small you believe your problems may be, your life and story matter. With help, recovery and life free from an eating disorder is possible.
I work with teens and adults and my goal as a therapist is to provide a safe, nonjudgmental, and compassionate space to gain the insight and tools needed for recovery. I use an eclectic style of therapy grounded in evidenced based treatment approaches such as DBT, family based treatment, and therapy to address underlying issues related to trauma. Eating disorder treatment often requires collaboration with a multidisciplinary team to provide the best possible care. I have experience providing these services and do so as needed with each of my clients.
