Eating disorders are frequently glamorized in tabloids, and many observers see eating disorders as brazen attempts to get attention. But if those same observers saw what occurs behind the eyes of a person struggling with anorexia, bulimia, or binge-eating disorder, they would be stunned. Both men and women with eating disorders often fight profound internal battles. Issues with food and body image are powerful ways to signal that these struggles are present.
Eating disorder counseling with a therapist, in the context of appropriate medical care and nutritional wisdom, can help you or your loved one uncover new reasons to live in hope. We offer individual therapy for eating disorders and body image issues and partner with experienced, registered dietitians who provide excellent care without creating needless shame.
