Eating Disorders

Bekah Larson, LPC, MAC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Hazelwood, MO

Often eating disorders are the surface result of pain unseen. I work with clients as we gently move from the surface of their behavior (using food or lack of food to cope with feelings) to the lower chambers of the heart where the emotional gashes are festering and gushing pain. Often when those wounds are found and pulled gently into the light they receive permission to heal. I also utilize EMDR by helping clients process the time in their life when their relationship with food began to spiral downward. EMDR is a wonderful to experience healthy challenge and great change in regards to shame and food.

Private Practice Counselor

Our relationship with food is complicated. It is necessary for life but if we over or under eat, those actions can be detrimental to our health and our very existence.Redefining our connection with food is a difficult process. Typically an eating disorder develops as an early coping strategy to help deal with a disorder in the family system. Identifying emotional triggers, improving coping skills, and developing a health body image are some areas to address. We can work together to build a healthy supportive lifeview: mind, body, and spirit. To ask questions or schedule an appointment, contact Angela McDowell.
