Living in a culture obsessed with looks, weight, and eternal youth, it is understandable that so many of us struggle in our relationship with our bodies and food.

There is a commonly held view that eating disorders are a lifestyle choice. Eating disorders are actually serious and often fatal illnesses that cause severe disturbances to a person’s eating behaviors. Obsessions with food, body weight, and shape may also signal an eating disorder. Common eating disorders include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder. To reduce or eliminate binge-eating and purging behaviors, people may undergo cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which is another type of psychotherapy that helps a person learn how to identify distorted or unhelpful thinking patterns and recognize and change inaccurate beliefs.

For those struggling with an eating disorder, please hear me when I say there is hope for full healing and recovery! When working through this struggle, I take a two-prong approach: initially, as we begin to build trust and understanding within the therapeutic relationship, our focus is primarily behavior-oriented. I utilize cognitive behavior therapy during this time, which essentially looks at how our thoughts influence our behavior and, thus, correcting unhealthy thoughts can correct unhealthy behaviors. Additionally, I think it is important over time to search out the root cause that bore these symptoms in order to prevent future relapse. I would be honored to walk with you through this.

Does food exert a powerful and negative influence in your life? Does food provide the comfort you do not have in your relationships? Together, we can look at the powerful attraction that food has for you and work to overcome it so that food is put in its place: noticing when you are full, able to savor with pleasure what you eat and eating to provide nutrition and healing for your body. We will work to strengthen real self love and compassion in order to break the enslavement to food.
