Most therapist treat eating disorders as an individual problem. As a systems expert, I realize that this problem is maintained or begun by many people. Even if the contributors aren't in the room, they will be represented and addressed. Also, the solution is systemic. Many people are required to help with this problem. The "cure" is in relationships.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Aaron Mitchum, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Body image, eating habits, etc. develop inside of complex relational experiences that often get locked away in the mind. I offer therapy that utilizes knowledge of how eating disorders develop and what type of relational experiences are needed in order for new ways of experiencing life, food and self to emerge. I try to know your life as you do, not as others do. Insight is not the main goal (although that certainly happens), rather formative moments of feeling tuned into, deeply understood and emotionally held are the goal. As this happens more of you begins to feel safe enough to unlock. Benefits include: more emotion regulation, self esteem, self control and feelings of vitalization.
