4300 N Miller Rd, Suite 102, Scottsdale, Arizona

My approach to treating eating disorders is to recognize that they are a secondary symptom to a deeper issues. Usually those deeper issues relate to abuse, traumas, depression and more. I not only help people learn what is healthy in terms of diet and body image but also help them uncover and deal with the real problems underneath. Eating disorders are the most common problem relating to sexual abuse in women.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Carol L Hunt, MAPC, LAC, CCTP

Clinical Counselor and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional

5010 E Shea Blvd., Suite D-202, Scottsdale, Arizona

Disorder is based on emotional issues. We usually vacillate between angry thoughts of the past and frightening thoughts of the future. Emotions become more manageable when we learn to think in the here-and-now where healing opportunities abound. When we implement personal boundaries we become the agents of our lives instead of believing we must comply with others. An accurate identity is foundational to all healing, especially in eating disorders. I find that Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy and EMDR are wonderful tools that help us process issues very well. Overall, I facilitate you finding the answers that already lie within you. That is a fascinating and interesting journey!

Compassion-Focused Art Therapist

Eating Disorders are an issue of control and everything including your emotions can seem overwhelming. But at least you can control what goes into your body, how often, and how much as well as whether it stays. I know you're tired of this lifestyle. You are tired of judging your self and coming up short. You are ready to move beyond the obsession with food and weight. I offer a safe, supportive environment where you can freely express yourself, so that we may uncover underlying beliefs and lifestyle practices contributing to your feelings of inadequacy. I offer verbal therapy along with creative expression, mindfulness, and cognitive therapies to help you get your body and life back!

Eating Disorder Counselor

Anne Brown, MS, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

4300 North Miller Road, Suite 222, Building D, Scottsdale, Arizona

I treat eating disorders from a perspective that addresses underlying trauma, relational difficulties, negative self-concept and boundary issues. Eating disorders are a symptom of negative beliefs about our worth and value. They are often difficult to overcome as they are a process addiction or compulsion. Process addictions are "processes" humanity cannot do without, such as food, relationships, sex and money. With all process addictions, health and recovery is found in moderation. I provide a safe, accepting and understanding environment for the development of boundaries, courage and confidence. As they are particularly effective strategies , I often use EMDR Therapy and trauma work.
